Looking for love, turkey

Here's a guy on a mission.
That's a spring turkey, or a turkey with
spring in his step. Turkey-knee deep
snow won't slow him down.
You go guy, show her what you've got.

Now she (the other turkey) continues walking, away.
And he just keeps going in her direction.
When he gets a little closer, it's show time......
Then he 'packs it all up', walks a bit closer,
and starts the show all over again.
Fan-Tail. Watch the short film below.

Ahh, spring. Almost. Sun. Warmth.
But clouds on the way. Colder.
Maybe snow. Just one or two inches.
If so, it won't last long. Spring --melting winter.
There goes the chance for rosehip tea.
Gee, is the bud that tasty???
Watch the film below.

Vernal Equinox - Last Night

A few moments captured in last evening.
In the cold, near freezing air.
Venus distant & bright.
A waning moon, slivering as it sank
below the horizon, or at this location,
below the near tree line.

Scratched, looking for spring in the air.

Snowing Violins

Just before the official spring timeline.
Another snowfall.
Not silent, but almost quiet.
Lots of falling snow.

Wind, snow, cold......almost spring

It's in the wind. They can feel it.
Of course, the same wind blows the seed about.
But the change is there. The season's changing.
It's beginning to sound like spring.
Listen to this short film.

Waiting on the Green

The parade hasn't started yet.
Just couldn't pass by these.
Grooving to the music.

And cycling pass the forest.

Go, check out more at hnldesign

Just Waiting for Takeoff

It's not only airplanes on runways.
A fun group of buddy-turkeys can
get stuck waiting for liftoff.
It's the weather. And the lack of
good peanuts.
As this short film demonstrates,
too close, too long, and too snowy
makes for a strange turkey.

Wintry Mixer

Last of the winter storms.
More than enough feed to share,
But ol' red needs to scatter the other guests.
Of course, they don't pay that much attention to him.
Fun in the snow with an audience.

Dinner for One

White-throated sparrow thoughts....
Winter. Below freezing, in the wind.
Tough to make dinner dates.
Often caught dining alone.
Just as well.
Never sure if there's enough to eat.

Line Dancing Turkeys

Still winter, still cold. Still deep snow.
A dozen and more turkeys strolled into the yard.
In line. A ndearly straight line.

Then it was time to move fast.
They took to the air. Light-footed.
Nothing left but snow. And a few other things.

Cardinal Stare..

Windy & cold with snow on the ground.
Winter still. Fuzzy focus in the breeze.
The cardinal just stares back.
Not frightened, not concerned.
More annoyed. With us?

A little more snow, then spring.
