I love cattails. Great capturing it just as the seeds begin to sail away!

Your picture makes me think spring can't be too far behind--are there some pussy willow buds swelling in the background, or do my eyes deceive me?

Had to go back for a look see.
Yup, There ARE Pussy Willows in that photo.Good eyes!

I screeched the car to a halt when I saw them blowing about and took a small video of them as well.
Someday when I'm old and crippled (Hopefully not) I intend upon rotating my nature chips in and out of one of those photo frames for me to view chair-bedside so I'll be able to continue enjoying nature.

Sage,

I love twisted, mature trees...and the water doesn't hurt any either.

Smile, maybe I noticed because mine are just starting to open! Normally I bring some in by now and force it, but I think it is getting an early start this year.

Great idea, let's hope you are always able to get out into the real thing, and you can enjoy the photos as memories.

Winters Pallet
February Photo of the Month - post pix here-february-dscf4852.jpg
A monotone color scheme ranges from black to white.
With the addition of just one bright color.....the mood changes.
As the snow melts.....Merging greens shall bring great pleasure, to both the mind AND the eye!
