I have four images today. After early church yesterday, Jeanne and I took a photo run down to the river. We saw a couple of eagles sitting high in the trees but none were fishing at the dam. The steam was rising for a far as the eye could see with a lot of open water mixed with ice below the dam. I have never seen this much steam rising from the river.
We didn’t find anything of interest at the dam so we drove up to Mud Lake Park. I enjoy going up there and have occasionally be rewarded with some great images. We saw this pair of eagle watching the river from a fallen tree. It’s not tack sharp but I thought it worthy of the post.
I think most of the wildlife was hunkered down as the static temperature was -11 and the windchill was somewhere around -25 degrees. I know that when I got out of the car to compose and take a photograph my face started hurting by the time I got back in the car.
I saw this little sparrow sitting in the tree and wanted to make an image of him so I didn’t come home with an empty card. 🙂
On the way home found this guy sitting in the tree. I figured he would fly when I stopped the car and got out but he didn’t. He tolerated me while I fired off some images. He stayed there the entire time and when we left he was still there.
That’s it for today. Still -4 but supposed to warm up to a balmy 15 degrees today. I have my final post op check up late this afternoon and hopefully he will tell me I can resume my normal routine. I’m tired of trying to sleep with that shield on. 🙂
Enjoy your day, stay warm and be careful.
