I hope whoever left this screw behind on the road gets what is coming to him.


I picked this up in one of the Continental tires on my Volvo S40 tonight on my way back form CVS. Not happy about this. As it is between treads, I do not know if a simple repair is possible.

Close Encounter

I went out to fill the feeders today, and found this little guy wasn't afraid of me. Of course, my camera was on my back, so I slung it around and pulled it out with the macro lens on it. Slowly I moved in, until I was close enough to reach out and touch him (but I didn't do that!). He was rather unfazed by the sound of my 40D's shutter, or by the big black macro lens hood that was bearing down on him. I'm surprised he didn't jump inside of it to get out of the snow!

Snow Bird

Click through to Zooomr and click on the magnifying glass to get a closer look. There's a cool looking snowflake on his back that was kind enough to be in the plane of focus.

I went for a lunch hour photowalk today at Beaver Dam Sanctuary. The various ice sculptures created by wind and rain and cold and warm and flowing water were amazing.

I would love to read your comments on these. Thanks!

Locked Up

I went for a winter hike at the Audubon Society's James Ramsay Hunt Sanctuary with my boys today. It was cold, but we dressed for it. The snow had that squeak underfoot that tells you it's nice powder for skiing. We found these leaves under some ice along the trail:
