Default Bit of winter

While Greg and Bob are out and about in the warmth of the Texas sun, my wife and i took a wander with the dogs through the Royal Botanical Gardens. A fresh dusting of snow and very friendly birds greeted us.
EPL1 with the M40-150, Was rather amazed at how shallow the depth of field is with this lens at f8.

Both very nice shots. The first one makes me want to see more of the surrounding area.

Okay, here is the original. The tracks in the snow and the light shadows are what caught my eye. this part of the RBG is mainly boggy surrounded by forest. More of a natural habitat than garden. They are working at preserving and naturalizing this area, re-introducing native fish and have even managed to attract a nesting pair of bald eagles. There has not been any eagles in this region for at least 100 years. The surrounding forest is the northern limit of the Carolinian forest. There are also the formal gardens and greenhouses one would expect, we just like wandering the forest trails with the dogs.

Second shot is a bit of late fall beaver workmanship, this one missed the stream, landing parallel to the bank.

The snow was gone by Monday with temperatures around 45F.
