Lovely photos. Very evocative of the time of year. Makes it seem welcoming and warm even though (today anyway) it isn't.
Hi Chris - thank you. It's getting closer each day now, isn't it. The buds are coming in on the birch on the front yard. It's been a long, dull winter. I'm ready for the return of the colour. :)
great shots, i can feel the silence.
Now I see how one can turn negative space into something very positive.
Thanks Joeri!Andi, we're getting there. Slowly (oh so slowly) but surely ... ;-)
That is one busy bird! We have Pileated's that nest every year in a big old tree across the street from us. I was listening to them call this morning and tonight. How I love that call!!!I swear these photo's could be from my own town! Wonderful Candis. It feels like home : )Sharon
I love your Pileated woodpecker! I heard one the other day but never got to see it.
Oh wow, some excellent shots Candis!!!! Did you get the D300 back? If so it, and you, are doing a great job ;-)
Hi Sharon - lol, it was completely absorbed by its work (how I was able to get close!). :)Hi Kate - aren't they something. So large, with that bright red. I hope the one near you gets close enough for its photo op ... ;-)Hi Scott - Thanks! Yep, it's back. It's so nice to have it back. :) The woodpecker shots were taken with the old D70s and 18-200mm lens. (As well as the full view of the pussy willows and the squirrel, while the others were taken with the D300 + 35mm.) I usually carry both cams, one with the WA lens and one with some zoom.
Awesome photos! I only recently found your blog and been admiring your images since then. Will follow for sure. Thanks!
Hi Taina! Thank you so much for the kind words, comment and follow. Appreciate it ... :)
