Toughing out the winter

Toughing out the winter
A photo from 4 March 2013 - doesn't it make you wonder how these tiny birds manage to survive the snow and frigid temperatures? Never fails to amaze me. Taken at Inglewood Bird Sanctuary, which I believe is still closed due to the devastation caused by Alberta's Flood of the Century in June 2013.

I only managed to upload the first of three images this evening. I don't remember ever having a problem with uploading before. Took forever for the second shot to finish and then I was told it didn't work. Eventually, after many tries, I chose another photo taken on the same day and it, too, is taking forever and I suspect that it isn't going to work.

FMW51, Cats 99, LeapFrog have particularly liked this photo

Excellent shot of this Red-breasted Nuthatch Anne ... terrific clarity and details ... beautiful little bird in all of its colours ... a fantastic bokeh here too ... well taken and well present!!

Before we get colder, we will be up to 11C on Thursday ... I will look forward to this day at the park!!

I really like this picture! A beautiful clear image of the nuthatch and a fantastic pretty bokeh! I am fascinated by nuthatches. There are some out at my parents' place, but they are quick and difficult for me to get good pictures of. I see them a lot, but photographing them is challenging. And I love their distinct little calls too. (I also wonder how they can stand the cold, they must be tough little creatures)
