Hooded Merganser

My parents came up to visit the day before my birthday, and we spent the late morning and early afternoon driving around the shoreline shopping and looking for some easy birding, as the remnants of the last blizzard have made the hiking trails a bit inhospitable recently. It was quite nice out, and while I didn't get any great traditional shots of the waterfowl we found, I did get one artsy picture of a female Hooded Merganser just after she took off.

Pansies

Springtime means pansy season rolls around. Andy put together this hanging basket (one of five baskets we put together around the outside of the house) with brightly-colored, cold-hardy flowers.


When I watered all the new pansies in, I noticed a large drop of water balanced on one of the larger yellow flowers, so I decided to try for something artsier than my normal photos. I think I did OK, given the fact that I used a kit 18-55 lens for this.
