Blurry Eagle

Steve and I drove through starved rock state park in the snow storm today (yes, it was too beautiful yesterday to last- we all knew the snow was coming back!) anyway, finally got a few shots of a bald eagle in flight. Not the best shots- still kind of shaky with the long lenses- but I finally got pictures that you can actually see that it is an eagle! (Here was my first attempt at an eagle a few years back)

Snow Cone

Sean and I went for a little stroll this afternoon to soak up some long awaited sunshine and enjoy the 40 degree temps....

Snow Oak

Another two inches of snow early this morning. It looks pretty, but I'm ready for spring.

 At least I know the deer are still around. One of them chewed down my variegated dogwood against the house. Nice to know they're not starving this year. this one looks nice and fat under all that fur.

Snow Blue Jay

I finally had a bluejay stick around long enough for me to get a few good pictures. Usually they are a grab and dash kind of bird.

Winter Birds of the New Year

Here is it January of 2015 already. Where did the year go?
Actually I'm glad to see last year go. It started out okay but ended pretty lousy. I was hollering for a do over towards the end there, but now I'll just opt for a fresh start.
Now here we are, a fresh snow and good ole bitter cold to go with it. For a little while there I thought Mother Nature was going to take it easy on us this winter. I was enjoying the temps in 40's, especially over Christmas- but alas, we do live in Illinois!
Morning after last night's storm- about 6 inches of powder snow
