Poor Little guy! He's about to blow away! Yipes!!!

It's gonna be warmer today here in TN. In fact, it's already 33 degrees--first time above freezing in about 4 days or more... Yeah!

Looks like he's trying to shelter his face away from the wind. Roll on spring! Shelley I looked in on your Log Cabin blog to see the Loon videos. Fabulous! (-:

Sharon said...

I love when they puff up to stay warm. Your photography is wonderful. May I ask what camera you use. I am looking into a new one and would love any info you could provide. Thanks Sharon

The Early Birder said...

Love the Chickadee - always amazed how the little fellows cope with the cold.
Ditto Sharon, what equipment are you using?

Shellmo said...

Thank you everyone for stopping by! It might be a few days before I'm back as my computer CRASHED! I am devastated to say the least and hope I can recover some of my photos. Hopefully I can get some computer time on my hubby's lap top.
Wish me luck and I'll be back!

Shelley

Sharon & Early Birder - sorry for the delay in answering your question about the camera equipment. (Been crying over my computer crash - LOL!)
I use a Canon Rebel XTI and I love it.
