Nest Building

You know it’s spring when within days of hanging your front planter the birds commandeer it to use to build their nest.  I sat and watched them hustle and build.  Two birds working in tandem to ge the job done.  It was purely amazing to see them work so swiftly and with precision.


Fighting the winter blues can seem to take forever.  Unlike the past few winters we really haven’t had much snowfall though we have had 5 school cancellations.  

Being a photographer in the winter months without a warm inside studio can be challenging to say the least.  I love snowy wintery images but have to confess I am not a fan of the brutel numbing cold that accompanies it.  It is eay to be passionate when you are surrounded with the Fall colors of New England.  When it comes to winter patience is truly a virtue.  It arrived and I was unprepared but jumped out and captured the most beautiful snowflakes.   Snow was falling gentle therefore the flakes would probably not break and it was cold enough for them to crystalize into the most amazing micro images.

I was in awe of the tiniest of details.  I went out several times that morning intermittently after warning my hands.

I created a video of some of my favorites from that morning.
