Four Weeks to Go

Darn! am I ever tired of this winter!
 
With Spring still four weeks there is plenty of activity in the wildlife world to interest a wildlife photographer.
 
Snow Geese in flight, Middle Creek WMA
 
Snow Geese numbers are building at Middle Creek WMA with Tuesday's report showing an estimated 40,000 along with 3,000 Tundra Swans.  While in past years the number of snow's peaked around 100,000 somewhere around the first week of March,; 40,000 is plenty of birds to break the winter photography blahs. 

Wild Turkey Strutting
 
And while the peak strutting season is still a few weeks away the first stirrings of the wild turkey mating season can occasionally be seen on warmer days.

That Turkey is really pretty - Love the deer in the snow, and the Snow Geese is a great shot as well.
