A Successful Day

There was a lot of shrill chirping in our yard this morning as these little fluffballs popped, one by one, of the confinement of their shells.  What a joy it was to watch it all unfold.  The proud, and very protective Daddy led his first two away from the nest as Mama finished up with the other two.  Let me tell you, that Daddy bird has a mouth on him!  He gave me the 'what-for' the entire time I was outside even when I was nowhere near them.

I kept my distance, of course, but every ounce of me wanted to snuggle these little sweeties.  And as I heard the coyotes howling so nearby last night, I wished I could bring them all in and keep them safe.  Of course, they all made it through their first night, only to be led across the busy road to the pond on the other side.

Just look at these adorable little critters!

Before I get to the pictures, I have a quick question for my fellow bloggers.  I have tried to fix the problem, all of my settings are correct, but I am no longer receiving emails when one of you graciously leaves a comment here for me.  Any ideas?

Snapshots

It's great when you come across wildlife that is way too busy to care what you doing with your camera.  Foxes don't look their best in the spring when they are losing their coats, but she's a beauty nonetheless.

This rainbow went on forever, it lasted for well over an hour and was incredibly vibrant. After taking the photo, I just sat on the couch and stared out my window. After the rainbow was over and the clouds were breaking up, the sky became very dramatic and again, the color lasted for quite a while. It was a nice evening to sit in front of the picture window.

And then there's the train.  I hope to get more and better shots of trains this year.
