I've waited a year and a half (that is, since I first moved to this particular home) for a legitimate snow covering at my place! The timing isn't perfect, as I have company coming and airport trips to make, but I think that'll be fine. Meanwhile, this is what I woke up to this morning:
(Well, for the record, this was like an hour after I woke up.)
It was a little too dark for sharp duck photos, but I wanted to show you the snow on this Ringneck's back! These are diving ducks, but the snow was coming down hard enough at that point that it collected between dives.
Before I headed down to take photos, I debated whether I wanted to take my larger telephoto lens. I decided there would be no need, and now I'm kicking myself! These deer were wandering around the forest and I could only use my stupid kit lens to photograph them. Can you even see them?
I circled them for you, if not. :)
I guess this is Lake Bella? :) I'll have to ask about that sign sometime...it hasn't been up the whole time I've lived here. The lake right next to it is Lake Edward. ;)
Some of these are kind of similar...sorry about that.
Some of these look black and white, but I left them all in color. That's a beaver lodge off to the left.
Okay, I guess that's enough for now. Hey, we get snow so rarely that I had to get a little crazy with the pictures. Who knows when I'll see it again? Maybe tomorrow, actually, but fingers crossed that I won't. I need nice, dry roads.
I think Food Friday is going to be postponed. I'll show you double next week!
