It definitely starts to feel like spring when the winter lakes begin to dry up. For those of you who have been following this blog, you’ve seen the huge lakes I’ve shot at this very same spot a few months ago – HERE and HERE.
As the rains decrease, the lakes get ready to transform into pasture for the cows… This heron taking flight is what I normally get when I try to move in for a closer shot. Pretty soon most of the geese and herons and egrets and ducks will have moved on to wetter places for the summer.
On the other hand…. this is what it looked like March 13th of last year. I suppose there’s hope for some more rain or even a dusting of snow, but it’s not looking very promising. It feels like it might be a rather dry spring and summer this year.
You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.
