Finally, we had sunny, frosty, and snowy winter weekend. The Sun was blindingly bright, and on its harsh light the photography did not have semitones. However, it did not stop me to make some pictures of beautiful trumpeter swans.
To make pictures of chicks is not safe. While I tried to make some, Robin-mother attacked me. Then I have to do so through the window.
It would be nice to have such a blue sky over the entire World!
As of December 30 in the morning I saw through the window a lot of birds on the tree. They looked not really seasonal. I made pictures of them and surprisingly found they are Robins. Usually they come here sometimes at the end of March or so. However, this winter is not a real one for now. The temperature is mostly around +5C, there is no snow, even at night time we do not have any frost. Probably, the birds felt the Spring in the air and decided to come back to us. They actually brought the Spring on their wings and happiness of New Year!
The bald eagle is a bird of prey found in North America. A sea eagle, it has two known subspecies and forms a species pair with the white-tailed eagle. Wikipedia.
Christmas is almost here but winter does not promise to paint it white. It is still pretty warm and dry outside. What we can do in that situation just listen the song “White Christmas”. Another way to feel the winter is to recall the previous snowy and white winter. That set of pictures have been made in 2011 in Town of Oakville, Ontario. This is the beautiful town near Toronto where I used to live for 14 years. It worth to see this lovely place and enjoy its tourists area with parks, galleries, shops, restaurants, and of course Lake Ontario promenade.
It was cold, silent winter morning with lot of snow. That create a special mood and holiday spirit.
It was bright, crispy, windy and cold Sunday morning. Quiet time. You can meet by that time only “early birds”. It is time for walking and thinking. Nothing and nobody bothering. The best time of the day!
