frozen lake

i don’t know how i remembered this morning that i’d forgotten to post these photos. maybe it’s because my brain appears to be sharp and good, i’m sure because the sun is shining and it’s supposed to be in the 50s today.

sunshine, good.

this is the first picture i took of the birds at the feeder and on the lake, and i like it because there’s such a huge amounts of birds.

after i took so many pictures last sunday i was in such a good mood about being out in the sunshine that i go for a short run down the road. as i turned around to go home this little deer was standing there looking at me.

one final imageof last sunday, i liked this one because the beach house in included.

and now i roar into action and do many outside activities…

ok then,

mrs. the start of february hughes.


all geese all the time

by grace on January 31, 2020

On Sunday Jan. 26th the sun appeared! this was fantastic; i’m not sure how long it had been cloudy but i know that we haven’t seen it again since sunday.

so i went a little bit bonkers taking geese photos on the lake that day.

i mean, pretty crazy. i think i took over 100 pictures. a lot.

somehow i managed to sort through them all and winnowed them down to only 13.

first, these geese were taking off over to the side of the yard. i wish you could see better the goose over to the left up in the air.

then four of them were in flight…

it’s easier to see them here.

down at the water i realized that a lone gull was standing around amidst the gaggle of geese. he’s third from the right in the left group of geese on the lake.

here he’s a little closer, third from the right on the right side.

this is my favorite one, as he marches across the ice right in the middle of the picture.

but then i guess i got too close, or who knows what spooked him, but he started to fly away…

…and then everybody had to start flapping their wings…

and that’s all for right now.

i’m sure it’ll be sunny again. sometime. it’s already friday and there is a big flock of white pelicans down at the water right now, but still it’s cloudy.

ok then,

mrs. end of january hughes.


more geese…

by grace on January 29, 2020

On January 22nd it was still gray but not nearly as cold so i took some more photos of the geese.

You can see that they weren’t too bothered by me since this whole group was sleeping. i love it when they’re asleep with one leg tucked up.

i like this one because there’s so much going on. even though most are milling about, the bird down front is napping, as the one directly in back of him is marching away.

and then some geese flew in, as those four geese way in the background stayed where they were.

they usually kind of slide when they touch down.

we forgot about the bubbler but then kevin put it in and it works great.

yes, lots of geese. when i start taking pictures of them i find them so fascinating because they’re constantly moving, so i take way too many photos.

on the sunday the 26th the sun came out and it was glorious so i took even more picture. i mean a crazy amount, so i guess it’ll take me a bit of time to pick and choose.

meanwhile, it’s gray here yet again.

ok then,

mrs. waiting patiently for spring hughes.
