Wasn't sure I'd actually have anything to offer today but finally managed to come up with something after a struggle with post-processing and editing to finish the image I kinda/sorta had in mind as I was having a happy time shooting. I love the act of shooting, of capturing images, but all too often various deficiencies in proper lighting techniques or proper shooting techniques throw obstacles in the way when I'm in the editing phase of things, and that can be very frustrating, as retouching/editing is still my weakest point in the whole photographic process of making images. (A tendency towards perfectionism doesn't help matters, either!)

Anyway, here we are:

Flipping the Bird.... Well, actually, the bird was flipping himself, doing water aquatics and somersaults! I looked out the window and saw one of the geese being really frisky so grabbed the trusty camera and ran out to the deck and watched in astonishment as he suddenly did it again, a head-over-heels somersault in the water! I guess he was enjoying the fact that he could swim and move around freely, no more ice!

I saw the two ducks back in our pond yesterday. First time in ages.

rode though a old neighborhood on the way home lots tree parts on the ground from the ice storm but this tree was the biggest I have seen. not much in the way of roots. I am surprised its still on the ground as it would have happened Saturday or Sunday. when you ahem million dollar homes here.

Oops, looks as though I missed a day.....

Today's shot features a goose who was honking happily, having fun with his fellow geese and some Hooded Mergansers as they all enjoyed the hint of Spring in the air:
