Photos of the Day

“If I ever go looking for my heart's desire again,
I won't look any further than my own back yard.
Because if it isn't there, I never really lost it to begin with.”

 When I am tired of the snow, lack of sunshine and the time  just to be able get out and go.
 I know I can always take  pictures out side of my window.

 This window is from and old building up above Pineview reservoir the owl from Antelope island,

It is always fun to look at the locations of the people who visit my blog.

 We have been living  in a deep freeze now for at least six weeks. Most  winters we have a thaw out period when we get rid of most the snow before a new storm brings us fresh snow.
 But between the 2 to 3 feet of snow then it was topped off  with a frozen rain it has not wanted to budge the icicles have hung on also.

Farmington Bay Bird Refuge

These picture were taken over a course of many days
some days were filled with the warmth of the sun
 others were cold and foggy.
The eagle watch has begun.
 There are eagle paparazzi are all over the place .
And are quite intimidating to me with their huge cameras.

First time I have ever seen an owl at the bay, plus the first time I have
 ever seen this type of Barn owl.
 He was hard to capture and a little out of  my range to really get a  great shot.
 His coloring and markings were beautiful

The pheasants were  busy eating  what they could off these prickly little twigs.


Blue Heron

Black-crowned Night-Heron

Lunch break and so much to chose from!

And another first for me!
 On the way  home from the bay I came across
 this man out for a ride, it made me smile.

Photos of the day

A late  afternoon ride out on  Antelope Island even in frigid cold weather was well worth the trip. 
By the time we were leaving the sun was going down
 and so was the temperature down to 3 degrees.
