Entering early for a change - I'll be away from my computer for several days, starting tomorrow, 23 February.

The first image is just before sunset, looking southwest over our pasture, the second was taken at the edge of a small pond that takes overflow from our spring, the third is lichen growths at the entrance to a local cave, and the last is a stream that exits yet another cave.

They are the dreaded Phragmites grass you often hear talk about taking over the wetlands.
This clump has recently been removed to prevent its rampage!

I LOVE your reflections shot Suunto!
Can I use it for my desktop?

I love them all, Suunto, but am partial to frogs and toads. Do you know what this guy is? Isn't it kind of early for one of these guys or are you all thawed out in WV?

I rarely post to these contests...and am not sure these are worthy, but I just took them today and thought they are not too bad. So, I kinda just want to share.

I didn't realize that witch hazel--at least sometime--holds onto its leaves over winter. ...and I was just thrilled that the chickadees let me get so close--the blurring is caused by the chickadee pecking at a sunflower seed.

Nice action shot...No need to worry about whether your shots are worthy or not.
It's VERY nice to see more players-displayers here. ALL are appreciated!

Thanks... I share pictures all of the time on other threads, but when it is a contest, I guess I'd rather post only the most exceptional--and those are few and far between. By my judgement, these weren't what I'd call exceptional, but I'm glad I could add something.
