2010 Polar Plunge




This year, the 2010 Special Olympics will be held in Lincoln, NE. The money raised from the polar plunge will go to the Special Olympics. We had 4 brave souls take the plunge. You're all troopers! This was the first year I have been able to make it up to watch, what a site. I'm amazed at the number of people that do this---and some of the costumes---hilarious!

Baldy on the river












Saw 2 baldies on the river today. I haven't done much shooting since getting the new camera, so when I saw them hanging out in the tree, I rushed home to get my gear. By the time I got back down there, only one was still there. I pulled up on the opposite side of the river and walked along the trees. I managed to get a few shots before all the geese in the river gave me away, what a bunch of noise makers they are! After that, I just took some random shots of the snow covered trees in the park, which have mysteriously disappeared from my computer somehow. I must have accidentally deleted them. :-( Guess I'll have to go out and do it again tomorrow.

Flicker







Had some Flicker's visit the back yard last week. I love their markings. There were actually 3 all at the same time but never in the same tree. Oh, how I wish for some blue sky!
