Sometimes the animals have no idea I'm shooting them, but every now and then I get a stare-down. Some of these are repeats and I apologize for that. I desperately need to get out with my camera, but the weather is being really bratty.

These are images of the American goldfinch seen on Jan, 9 at Bluebonnet Swamp. They were wearing their drab winter colors, but now are starting to show more color. By the time they are decked out, they will be leaving us to go farther north to breed. Hope to get some photos with the brighter yellow feathers soon.
I certainly enjoyed working from home the prior two weeks and catching up with some of my favorite customers, but I'm really glad to have my days to myself again. If the weather would only cooperate so I can get out with my camera.

Sorry for the same cast of characters. I will try to do better as the weather allows. Thank you for your patience. All images photographed on Jan 9th.

How is it we are in the first week of March and still seeing nasty, sleety days? The poor birds. I photographed these from our boat port window, but even being inside there it was too cold to last long! Once my lens iced over, I waved the white flag. That scared me.
Hope everyone is staying warm!

|You talkin' 'bout my woman?|
|Mrs. Red-bellied is having a bad hair day, too.|
Don't you just want to run a comb through it?
|Her retort: Hey lady, try to eat a meal in the sleet and see how your hair looks!|

It's Fat Tuesday, y'all! Time to fatten up and eat our fill before the season of Lent comes to restrict our diets. :) I don't really participate, but it's hard not to get caught up in the excitement since we're inundated with parades, king cakes, and parties right now. Below are more photos from the CAAWS Mystic Krewe of Mutts parade in downtown Baton Rouge.
|This image cracked me up.|
Looks like the dog is reading the sign and is none too pleased about it! LOL
|This is totally not sexual. I have no idea what is going on.|
Seems the white dog just wants to protect the brown dog, keep close tabs, or show who's boss.
