Way too much wind for outdoor macro photography today, so I headed to Thomson Memorial Park to gather items to be photographed later. I posted many bud photos during my first 4 days so decided to have a “no bud” day today. Here are the results:
Thomson Park is a nice mixture of streamside, woods and history.
I saw my first House Finch in the 1980’s as they are originally a bird of the southwestern United States and northern Mexico.
I heard my first singing Cardinal towards the end of January. These days some are singing shortly after 5 am.
Hello Miles, This is the shot – taken in Ireland by a not-so-busy-these-days sports photographer who’s had time to “think about other things.”
Here is the story about it, along with other images by him:
New England woods are softly fair,
And many marvels gather there—
The flaming hush the soaring pine,
The shining birch, the swinging vine;
But lord of all the varied scene
I rank the lowly wintergreen. – Amos Russel Wells (1862-1933)
