Still a little crisp outside for a a beautiful day to start off spring.
Early spring is one of my favorite time of year. The world around us starts to stir with new life, new excitement.
The Swans have been back for a while.
And the Otter have been out fishing the last few days. He/She found a open hole very close to the first bench on the River Trail. I took this shot from quite a ways up river; but mornings about 9-9:30 at the first bench would be a perfect spot to catch the performance up close.
The Otter are very proficient at fish; which we have been witnessing day after day
.... and we have noticed .......they always leave something for their neighbors.
Within minutes of the Otter sliding back down through the ice, the Raven or the Eagle swoop in to enjoy what the Otter has left to share.
In these trying times, we hope you will find comfort in the natural beauty around us
Driving to Rennie the other day we saw this beauty in a tree just off the side of 307. We stopped and waited for it to turn around.
At first it pretended we were not there; but then it gave us the "look".
Looks who's back.
They landed this morning on the open water just down from the falls.
Last year we first sited them on the river March 21st.... so they are 2 weeks early this year.
1st sign of Spring.
