Happy Groundhog Day


Regardless of Punxsutawney Phil’s verdict today, I think spring is in the air.  The trees flushed with new growth several weeks ago.  Stores are stocking summer annuals that they usually don’t have until April.  Poor Squirt is having trouble finding his pansies already (Lowes ran out of six-packs!) 

Today’s image is a Roseate Spoonbill from MINWR at the beginning of January.  I liked the pose, but a little bit of Fractalius work in Photoshop made the image much more dramatic.
