And moonbeams and fairy tales
That's all she ever thinks about
Riding with the wind
That's about the only Jimi Hendrix tune I can almost play. The Cooker and I went out for a walk in the woods with our cameras. A few things are starting to come up, but not much flowering yet. The Painted Lady butterfly was from today, my buddy, Rune the Fjordhorse' picture was from last week before we took him to live with his sire and half brother outside of Duluth. He is too large for a normal Fjord as is his brother, but they will be an awesome driving pair. I missed the big full moon because of the cloudy weather, but got this shot a few days later in the middle of the day.
The birds are migrating back from their winter hiding places. The bugs are starting to hatch on the ponds and the warblers are starting to find them. They are really hard to get a photo of because they are small, skittish, and don't come very close. Here is what used to be a Magnolia warbler (I think) that is now referred to as a yellow-rump. I don't think it would have chosen the name change.
