Winter's on the run




I've been under the blog radar for the past week or so, visiting Chicago and family. Because the days there were cloudy with rain and, no surprise, wind, it was lovely to be back up north to see the blue sky and measure how far winter had receded in my absence. Thus, these two photos this week as I scanned the skies. The first is the sun rising over the Mississippi casting its coat of many colors on Canada Geese rising. And who doesn't thank the Robins for coming back so soon!

You'll be than
kful for the opportunity to see many more skies @ Skywatch Friday.

Lovely bird and sky photos Noni, - that robin does look plump and happy with his beautiful red breast.

hey, I've been wondering where you've been. you must have passed right by me on 94 going to Chicago. next time, alright???
yes, I'm very happy to see the robins, and there are many of them. your images are lovely, so much blue sky and I know what you're referring to about that wind. it's coming straight off the lake and it's brutal. I love your flying birds. have a great weekend Noni! glad you're back.

Very nice shots! We have our first true sign of Spring in "our" osprey pair returning from their winter migration. Now our Spring plans can go forward!

Wow, Noni. I would have never guessed those were Canada Geese; the reflection of the sun beneath their wings totally fooled me.
