So Much Beauty

The month of May is exhausting. It's doubly so for birders. A narrow 'birdy' window of opportunity opens and closes around this month of blossoms and showers. Where to turn next becomes the issue of the day. Ah, the trials and tribulations of sunny, breezy, rainy, bird-laced -exhausting- May. In the 'oil paint' filter tool in ACDSee these mallards and blossoms and linden tree refelections became even more lovely.

Ah, the birding window. I am typing this as my own two avid birders, son age 12 and his dad, are out and about hoping to catch a few more glimpses of those fleeting birds before they fly elsewhere and to delight in the ones that have come back for their annual summer visit.

I had to smile when I saw you are in Ohio. We are from Cincinnati, now living in the desert of the Southwest, in Las Vegas. A whole new opportunity for birds :)

Found your blog via Greg's Thoreau blog and have been enjoying it immensely.

Hi Barb,
I'm so glad you stopped by. Thanks so much for the kind comment. I, too, love Greg's Thoreau blog. Have you commented there? (I'll have to look). I found Casey's blog, A Voyage Thither, there also. Always interesting.
I do wonder how happily you were able to make the transition to the desert Southwest. It's a very great change to go from boggy to dusty :0)

Hi Renuka,
I see that you're just north of me in Detroit. Your'e also getting this rainy, cool weather - it's not quite, the balmy sensuous spring, the dreams of which, make an Ohio winter bearable. Arghhh! It's really put a crimp in my birding style:0) But, still - it is beautiful. Thanks for dropping in.
