Winter Around the Local Pond

I ventured down to my favorite pond after “snowmageddon” cast its wrath upon us here in the Northeastern United States. Someone had been there before me and carved out enough of a path for me to walk in their footsteps.001The pond was frozen over and some of the trees still held the snow from two days ago.ย 013

009A flock of Geese honked overhead and then landed in unison on the partly frozen river that lies on the other side of the pond004

005I then heard a cacophony of crowing looking up to see a flock-for lack of a better word, of crows crossing the sky and landing in the top of a ย tree016

What a noisy bunch they were!017

018and just as quickly as they had all landed, they all took off again020

021as I was still looking overhead my neighborhood Eagle did a fly over- too fast for me to zoom in on in focus, but I could tell it was him by his white head. Maybe with more practice I will eventually be able toย capture him in focus and zoomed in!027

  1. Beautiful photos. They speak of the quiet serenity after a snowfall when everything is still pristine under its new blanket of white. The first photo is my favourite with the soft light on the snow ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Such a lovely gathering of birds. I was impressed you got the eagle and better than I can do. I was trying to get geese taking off and only one of the shots showed any details. Smiles, Robin

  4. Oh I wish it would be winter here. It’s raining and too warm for snow. Another warm week, This winter really sucks here in Ohio. I am hoping for snow and really cold weather in February.
