    • This extended winter has had a profound impact on all of us, people and animals alike. I’ve made a serious effort to capture representative images with aesthetic as well as environmental value. You seem to understand that, and I’m really glad you commented. Thank you!!!

  1. You know my favorite is the deer. Turkeys are always a great capture too. I’ve been hearing some turkey calls to the west… I believe I need to get busy trying to photograph those keen-eyed birds!!

    • Over the years I’ve seen many gobblers strutting around in the spring, but have yet to capture one in close, in full display, with vivid colors glistening in morning sun. That should be starting now….but a miserable, cold rain, with occasional flurries, has put everything on hold. I did not see a turkey today and I don’t think they ever left the roost. Good luck…hope we both realize our turkey goal!

      • We’ve been getting high winds and colder temps again. We still have nighttime freezes. They’re even saying on Friday night chances of snow. I won’t be out there with the camera any time soon!
