    I need to get caught up - have a few that aren't yet posted.

    It's very unusual to see deer out in the middle of the afternoon. As I drove down the road, they started to cross it and headed into the park. So I stopped and walked over. The adult was wary and turned to walk back across the road. The young one stayed put for a few moments before following its mom.

    Drove further through the park and spotted his hawk sitting high above.

    Eventually came across this frozen blob. It looks like a pregnant water drop except it was about an inch-and-a-half tall.

    We had an inch-and-a-half of snow during Sunday's early morning hours. It resulted in very serene scenes. The heron at the end was a bonus!

    Below notice the heron sitting at the water's edge. Last Thursday was the first time I've seen a heron at the park but didn't have my camera. So I was thrilled to photograph it when I came across this scene on Sunday.

    Here are a few from yesterday afternoon. The area beneath the fishing pier looks like icy fringe.

    Here's a close up showing that ice.

    These supports reminded me of Clydesdales' hooves.

    I almost wanted to look around for a cow. The ice below reminds me of cow udders.

    Hark 2019-_dsc1581-low-res.jpg

    Hmm...maybe a paw with claws?

    I really need to get caught up again. These were from January 26th. A few days earlier, I watched 2 eagles performing a courtship ritual so I went out with hopes of seeing an eagle again. There were 5-6 flying around. One would fly from a nearby tree, skim the lake and catch a fish, then return to a tree to eat. The first images I shot were taken into the sun so the background on those was blown out. I knew I needed to get on the other side of the eagles so I walked beneath this one to get the nice blue sky.

    This was from the next day. I'm not sure whether this is a small tree trunk or a vine.

    This is from January 28th. I like to take photos of the memorial benches to share with the grieving families. They appreciate knowing others pay attention to their loved ones benches.

    This bench is in memory of an infant named Noah. When their family sees a pastel sky, they call it Noah's Sky. When I shared this image with the mom, she was absolutely thrilled.

    As I was taking this image, I was particularly focused on trying to create a starburst from the sun in camera. Although that didn't happen, when I saw how the water changed from yellow to blue on the rear display, I thought my camera was broken. Then when I looked out at the water and saw it really looked this way, it was amazing.

    The next morning, I was out when the temperature was only 4 degrees. It was immensely cold. Here is another example of a Noah Sky. This lantern is hanging next to a different bench at the park. Despite the frigid temps, the sunrise was spectacular. It was cloudy, and while the sun itself wasn't visible, the sky still looked impressive. That is a security light in the distance, not the sun.

    January 30th brought us fog and a surprise snow squall. These are 2 different memorial benches on opposite sides of the lake. The first image shows a dense fog. In the second image, the fog cleared off the land somewhat although was still thick out over the lake.

    February 1st brought us more snow. I used my Think Tank Emergency Cover for protection from the snow. I'm still waiting for my local store to get the medium size back in stock. The small size fits my Nikon 24-120mm f/4 VR very well (which is what was used here) but wouldn't be long enough to use with my 300mm f/4 VR PF coupled with a 1.4x teleconverter. Been waiting since the end of December.
