So much of my photography during the winter months focuses on two things: birds, if I am walking in my local park, and landscapes, if I am walking anywhere else. This morning’s photo walk took me to the local park, and I captured a different critter, one that has been in hibernation for the winter and only recently poked his nose out of the burrow. I managed several photos of him (or her, as the case may be):
As promised a week or so ago, here is a portrait (actually two poses) of the “drink your tea” bird, the Eastern towhee, so identified because of one of his distinctive calls, easily recognized, even by amateur bird watchers like me.
I captured all of these pictures in the area of our park I call “the bog”, the habitat of an interesting variety of critters, winged and otherwise.
That’s the word for today from the south shore of Lake Erie where the current temperature is a sunny 71 degrees, and March is going out “like a lamb”.

nice….sounds like I’m not the only one who never leaves home without a camera! 🙂
Your photos of the wildlife are always so great ! What type of camera and lens do you use?
I use a Nikon D90. For birds and deer and other creatures in my local park, I almost always use the Nikkor 70-300mm lens. For landscapes I use the Nikkor 18-105, which was the kit lens with the D90. I probably do 99% of my shooting with these two lenses.
