For those of us who don't walk well in snow, the January thaw can be a blessing -- especially if the temperatures are fairly warm too and the day is sunny. It was time for a long overdue walk to the Ditch.
Harry the Heron, of course, is vacationing at points South. I really didn't expect to see too much wildlife to when I came around the corner, I was a bit surprised to see this.
Can't see anything much? Let's zoom in!
There was a trio of deer on their island. One is kind of hidden in the photo above; you only see her bottom. But this one was definitely curious!
I always feel like it's a special gift when I see the Ditch Deer. I think I'll call these three Doe, Re and Mi. Doe is clearly in charge!
I shared a few sitting ducks in the last post or the one before that. When I came around the first corner, every single one was asleep...
... but when I got to the bridge a short distance away, things were perking up!
Time for a swim!
You'd think their feet would get cold!
I loved the reflections on this one!
I know we'll have plenty more snow this winter and it will be some time before all the ice goes out and Harry and his friends return.
Till then, I'll take in the beauty of winter! If it wasn't so darned cold, I'd actually like it!
What a difference a day makes -- one day you are walking and your jacket is partly open, mittens in your pocket and you wake up the next day and it looks like this.
