Fleeting Winter Glimpses

Crows grazing on lotus seeds
Yesterday's bright, quiet morning offered brief glimpses of wintery moments before today's deluge arrived.  Retuning my seasonal clock one moment at a time.

Ice shelf on the river
Mink scamperings
Swamp dogwood glow
Long-awaited sight of hooded merganser swimming upstream


  1. The merganser is very regal, and makes a moving photo.

  2. Seeing them on the Concord River, serenely swimming against the current, is a seasonal reassurance for me. With so much open water, it's been difficult to find them in the usual places this year.
