Great Egret Sighting!

Great Egret
Kingsburg Pond, Kingsburg NS

I was lucky enough to get a fairly crisp shot of this gorgeous Great Egret fishing in Kingsburg Pond.  Keep your eyes peeled for an all white bird on your next trip to Hirtle's Beach.

Winter Tracks

Upper Kingsburg, NS
Feb. 6, 2015

Just us winter critters, out exploring the fresh snow. Consistent cold temperatures have produced excellent skiing conditions.  Lots of powdery snow atop a hard, crusty base.  I'm in heaven.

It's been a while since I've posted here, thought this shot was worthy of jump starting the 'ole blog again.  This is my first sighting of a redpoll, I think I'm in love.  What a cutie!!!

How cold is that ocean?

A zippy and refreshing 14 C.

First time I've had the hood and gloves on this Fall, air temp is colder than the water.
