Just got my camera out of the repair shop and needed to snap some photos ont eh way home.
Bill's Barber Shop
Lots of red, white and blue here.
The quiet of the new fallen snow let me get fairly close to this handsome illusive guy.
Purple Finch in March
These finches bring such soft color to the winter.
I found the shapes in this tree to be compelling.
The cold spell has brought a lot of birds to our feeders.
Love these little cuties.
Cardinal from the Back
So nice to have color on a bleak January day.
Female Purple Finch
I think the identification is correct. So hard to tell.
We've got quite a variety of visitors this cold morning.
Born in Maine, I moved with my family to Montpelier when I was 1 1/2 years old, in 1956. I have always loved photography. My father gave me his Argus rangefinder when I was a teenager and I loved experimenting with the settings. I am retired from the field of elementary education and still play piano and sing out in public and for the past few years have been making and painting kites: kitesbyjim.com
