Fading Winter

It's the back end of Winter, and Mama Gaia is looking messy, faded, and disheveled. As I walked through the Dykeman Spring Nature Park this morning on the way to the grocery store I got some shots, and I noticed that Mama Gaia still looks good even in her disheveled state!

  1. Wow, that photo of the duck kinda jumps out at you! And I love the green wood in the first two photos.

  2. Birthday Greetings to you!
