Stepping in Spring

 
A crow caught in mid-stride
 
With the change of seasons underway I like to think I caught the crow "stepping into spring".


 
While the fields are still mostly brown, down on the farm, the new calves are arriving regularly.
 

 
And the fast moving killdeer are busy running about the pasture
 


With the wet areas showing the first green growth of the season
 
Yesterday I heard the wood frogs calling for the first this spring and today spotted a meadow lark and a wood duck pair.  While snow is in the forecast for Tuesday there is no doubt that the change of the seasons is underway.

When you see the signs of spring it means that it is soon to come here as well. Beautiful shots.

Wonderful shot of the crow! Our signs of spring, or perhaps pre-spring, are a little different. Daytime temps are in the low 30s, we're seeing some bare pavement on the main roads although there's still lots of snow on the ground. The best part is the longer daylight hours--we're past the 12 hour mark and still seeing daylight after 9:00 at night.
