A Black-capped Chickadee catching some winter sun rays.
An image I took yesterday at Long Point State Park on the east side of Cayuga Lake NY, at the northern end.
This image has inspired Pam Avery, one of my followers to write a poem. You can read it below and to see more of Pam's works, You can go to pamaveryprinted.wordpress.com
Cold colors streak across the landscape Touching the soil, the water, and the air With purple-tinted hues which deceive Us into believing that we are warm and That we can leap into nature’s arms… But the earth is frozen, the sea is frigid, And the air chills us to the bone… …Shocking our senses as The wise, cold colors remind us To look deeply before we leap.

A close-up of a Blue Jay that was looking through my dining room window.
Some more Pileated Woodpecker shots from yesterday.
This was an attempt to draw Mel Gibson I did in the late 80's I believe. Well, at least you can see it's a man, maybe with some resemblance. The art was done in #2 lead pencils and a couple colored pencils for skin tone and eyes.
This is another image from my walk today, hope you enjoy it.
Today's find on my walk, my friend the Pileated Woodpecker. I've learned what to look for and listen for as well to find these guys. I have a lot of images of this one, as I go through them and downsize their megabytes, I'll be sharing them.
A Golden -crowned Kinglet that I captured last weekend on my walk. A difficult little bird to photograph, it moves around more than the chickadee does.
