Just one more shot - a Yellow Rumped Warbler. I know this is terribly out of focus, but still love the curve of the wings... Any of you PP experts have any ideas for salvaging this, or is it just too blurry?

It's rained hard most of today, and all the landscape is flooded. Will be out on the trail a lot this week, continuing to repair wind and flood damage, but hope to be able to share a few more local shots soon.

Thanks for any comments & suggestions!

Sorry Pboerger, I didn't notice your post in the midst of posting these...

The moon shots (and the birds) were with the Pentax 135-600 zoom.

Pretty cold, eh? Same here.

Again, a great series!

I hope things warm up by April. I'll be in Gatlinburg on the first weekend.

Great series Mole!
You're a lot braver than I am to be out in that weather voluntarily!
The high today was 84 here and I got chilled just looking at those pix. brrr..

Very nice images, mole. I've been indoors all day, but still freezing. Just can't get warm. GW, how dare you say it's 84 there. I think our high yesterday was 35 and I'm not sure what it got to today. I never ventured out.

Great series. That first crescent moon is simply stunning. Pat yourself on the back big time for that one.

I really like the towhee shots, too. I very seldom see them around here.

I hope all that icy stuff is not a harbinger of too much to come. My son and his girlfriend are headed your way (to Pigeon Forge) next weekend.

Love the Towhee, Song Sparrow and the Moon pictures. The rest are just your usual great shots!

Mole going for a 9 mile hike on your day off is like the bus driver who takes a bus trip on his vacation.

I hope you haven't been down to the hollow in Lynchburg sampling that sour mash. LOL

I like to hike, but only when it's warm. Thank you Mole for getting out there for these amazing captures.

BTW, I've never seen a frozen waterfall before.

Gary - Thanks for your kind words.
Early April in the Smokies is so unpredictable - it might be in the 70's, or it might be snowing. But it's bound to be beautiful!

GW - Thanks. As you know, the cold doesn't bother me, because I'm full of hot air!

Patty - Thanks! I would invite you to come warm up at our wood stove, but it's kind of a long walk...

Paul - Thanks so much - that long old lens does well (when I use it correctly...). Glad you like the Towhees as well - we hear them a lot (song, call and scratching in the leaf litter), but don't get to see them that much. There's a chance of some snow flurries this weekend. Hope your son & his girlfriend enjoy it!

Lou - Thanks for your kind words - glad you liked these. Who needs Lynchburg - there are still a few moonshiners out in the mts!!

Gina - Glad you enjoyed these. Since you enjoyed the frozen trickling little falls, here are a few larger frozen waterfall photos taken last winter (with my old Canon, before I had a Pentax). This is called Gentry Creek Falls, in Johnson County TN. Will probably have more frozen waterfall photos later this winter...
