Even though 'our' turkeys seem to melt away into the woods for several months around this time of year, we've still been seeing quite a few of them. There's a flock of females and a flock of males, and I've caught them digging contentedly though the leaves together recently. I saw the beautiful albino female, too. Her feathers are so lovely.
The males are bolder and so colorful. I love the way their feathers turn a brilliant iridescent copper in the sun.
There they go!
More lovely birds have been spotted. The Carolina wren...
...and a particularly sassy female cardinal.
I love it!
So the weather got warm, many flowers started to bloom...
...aaaaaand...then we had an ice storm.
I have to admit, I was so excited that I didn't sleep well and was up early. I *love* taking photos of ice. This may be winter's last - and only - gasp here. It's supposed to be 50 degrees by the end of the day.
By the way, I'm going to try to find time to do a separate Valentine's Day post in a few days. I am falling too far behind with my photos!
Have a great week!
