Tufted Titmouse In Flight

The road to success is dotted with many tempting parking places.

I FINALLY captured a bird in flight - the entire bird 
(usually I end up cutting something off)
and in focus!
Taken 03-18-17 on my walk along Deerfield Trail.

Bird Art - Grackle In The Snow

The world needs dreamers 
and the world needs doers. 
But above all, 
the world needs dreamers who do.

This Grackle was enjoying a mid March snow that we had as part of the larger snowstorm - 
 Winter Storm Stella - that hit part of the MidAtlantic and Northeast. 
My artistic rendering of my original image captured 03-14-17.


Nest Building Mourning Dove

"Gentle Spring's around the corner, 
Waiting just to show her face 
And to bring us flowers and sunshine; 
Winter's almost run his race! 
Be not, then, my friends, discouraged 
That there's cold and ice and sleet; 
For Springtime soon will be with us, 
And the flowers we will greet: 
Daffodils, so bright and yellow, 
Hyacinths of varied hues, 
As they nod their heads, in gladness, 
Telling us they bring good news..." 
~ Gertrude Tooley Buckingham

Pink Hyacinth Buds

"Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers in the flowers today; 
And give us not to think so far away 
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here 
All simply in the springing of the year. 

 Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white, 
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night; 
And make us happy in the happy bees, 
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees." 
- Robert Frost

Spring Tulip

I've banished Winter, 
saith the Spring, 
 Awake! arise, ye flowers! 
 Brisk breezes blow, 
 Bright sunshine glow, 
 And rouse the young Year's powers.
