SILHOUETTES


I was up early on a Saturday morning when I walked by the kitchen window and saw our tree full to the brim with fluffy little birds.



There was something about their silhouettes against the lightening horizon that captured my creative fancy...



...their feathers puffed up in an attempt at warmth in the bitter, Idaho cold.


I spent the next hour sitting cross-legged on the dining room table, aiming my camera at the pretty things.


I couldn't get enough of the ever-changing colors of the morning sky.


I did a delighted dance after capturing the light through those wings in flight. Rather dramatic don't you think?

Spring is on the rise, my friends.
