The clouds got interesting, as well as the waves, when the afternoon breeze kicked up. Photographed while kayaking on Shoshone Lake in Yellowstone NP.
Summer speeding up as water flows from snow above.
Thunderstorms loom and the sun shines bright as July is ushered in.
Just for fun another basket of spring wildflower rendered in monochrome.
Some guys just know that they have the stuff to get the ladies and this is one of those guys…The Charmer. There were numerous Red Winged Blackbirds on the pond this day all strutting there stuff but to my untrained eye, heck i’m a human not a female Red Winged Blackbird, this guy just stood out.
He sang his song like no others birds on the pond and with a style non could match.
When he finished singing he put his brilliant red wings on display which none of the other males were doing. Most just sang and sang.
Yes…this guy knows he is The Charmer.
Even with a precarious grip we can keep hanging on.
Early spring reflecting into calm water.
Alone in the marsh with last seasons cattails as his home a Yellow Headed Blackbird begins to establish territory and sing his wonderful Yellow Headed Blackbird song.
The sound of Yellow-headed Black bird is a sure sign that spring has sprung.
