From the Archives

I started this post a couple months ago, then promptly forgot about it. Since I haven't posted in over a week, I thought I should go ahead and put it out there, even though these are winter pics. This Saturday I'm going to a dedication of a local nature preserve, so I hope to have some colorful photos to share. Hope everyone is well!

Nutria walking on ice just below the water's surface.
As soon as he began to walk, the ice gave way, then he swam.

Gail,

these photos should be in a book and published! They are fantastic! You really have an aptitude for nature shots. Maybe we should call National Geographic.
I especially like the Snowy Egret and the Northern Shoveler. Thanks for sharing.
Have a wonderful day!

Have a beautiful weekend!

Fantastic, Gail! The comments above are right: your photos should be published. (However, as pretty as the squirrel is, a similar dude ate most of my tulip bulbs!)

Really amazing pictures. I love your perspective and subject choices. Thanks so much for your kind words on my blog posts. Would you like to be on of the contributing photographers on my other blog, Write With Pictures? I think all of the aspiring writers would get much inspiration from your photographs. Please feel free to send me an email if you're interested: septemberkel@yahoo.com. Thanks so much - Kelly

First I look Nutria is walking on water and wondering how's that possible, is that a miracle animal or what until I read it walks on the ice ( I can't see the ice it is so thin). Great shots.

Hate crows, but love your capture. Love the nutria--looks like he's walking on water.

Oh, Gail. Love the egret (or is it a heron?) Nonetheless, love it.
