A Wintry Mix (of birds)
Mother Nature exercised her influence over our landscape again with yet another dusting, maybe more, of snow. I suppose it could have been worse, so I will try not to complain.
When we are in the bulls-eye for these storms, wildlife seem to be easier to photograph. From our backyard to out in the country – I found plenty of decent photo subjects to point my Nikon at. Let’s begin with backyard birds and a fox squirrel.
