We had some snow showers yesterday. I sat at the studio window and watched the little Dark-Eyed Juncos feed. It was fun to watch them scoot their little feet around to uncover the seed I had thrown down for them. Thanks for looking! :o)

Beth, these are a wonderful set of pictures....here I am in sunny California wishing for snow again after seeing your pictures...I love each and everyone > each one is a winner > I'm especially fond of the last one...i'ts so Japanese in composition and it has such a delicate feel.:D

Nice shots. That is sort of how it looked here yesterday morning. And afternoon. There was a ten minute pause when I took the duck shots. Spring is so wonderful. I like 4 the best myself. I can relate to what the bird looks to be feeling in that shot.

Thanks for the comments, Mark, Hiroshi, happy_peasant :o) I really enjoyed watching these birds...here are a few more. I am striving for interesting compositions.

That 3rd shot of the last group is excellent Beth. It just shows that regardless of what the weathers like theres always the opportunity somewhere for good images.Often close to home. Great work!

All three are sunning...especially #7...it tells a story...you have truly achieved "interesting compositions", But beyond that these are "artistic" compositions. definitely worthy of framing one and all. Congratulations on a great shoot.

Wonderful. I never see weather like this (I think we have had a grand total of 20 minutes of snowing in Melbourne in my 44 years living here) and it is beautiful to see it represented so well.

I was a bit spooked by #5 for a bit because the beak looked like a little face and I was wondering if we were having our leg pulled gently.

very nice shots tell us a story and of time well spent.....i like the 'cute' factor of the pictures...
