Every day it feels more like spring, yes, winter remains yet it’s grips has lost much strength.

After a few cold days there was only a small hole in the ice on one of the local ponds we visit to watch the wintering waterfowl. On this day the fishing was good and a Common Goldeneye hauled in a monster Crayfish and even got away with it before the gulls spotted him. Lucky Duck!
For the next couple of weeks we will be posting some of our favorite posts from the past as we take a small respite from the digital world.
