I am focusing on how this cold winter weather might be destroying harmful summer bugs. This helps me to accept what is, but then I don't have kids at home clammering to see their friends at school. Or a job that requires me to be at a certain place at a certain time. In fact, going with the flow, I made a few photos from the great number of visiting birds this morning which I will share in this blog today.
First, I was able to attend a lovely reception for a photo show in the historic Kentucky Theater in downtown Lexington Thursday evening. I am sharing three photos I took there, with a hats off to the photographer, Jimmy Stevens. To begin with, I thought the Mission Statement was terrific:
A favorite photo which several of us tried to capture had reflections that were too challenging. I believe it is a photo of Jimmy's mother. Wonderful.
Rather than show other works there, and not do them justice either, I am instead showing a moment with some of the folks who came. The photographer is the one sitting in his chair. I so enjoyed getting to something like this in the middle of our winter! Thanks, Jimmy and Jackie, if you are reading this.
Now, here is a taste of this morning's birds:
|cardinals at rest, with a junco|
|cardinal on the go!|
|two robins passing through, checking out our berries|
Two more cardinal views -- we had about six pairs interested in the bird feeder this cold morning!
|waiting in the wind|
|facing into the wind and watching and being handsome even with snow on his beak|
I am still learning about videos, on the go, so to speak. I am going to publish this post now, and if the video isn't working, it just means I am still working on making it work....later: got the video to work, but haven't managed to delete the one that doesn't work...stay tuned.
A special shout out to our neighbors Sandy and Junie. I hope things are going well today. We miss you and send our best!
