Down by the river

More forest preserve pictures. I thought this fallen tree had a neat look. I need to go back and work on the water reflections.

With all due respect to Korsakov

This guy has bored a hole in my house, so he's going to die soon. In the mean time, he was milling about near the tulips in the front. So I spent a long time trying to get a good shot. This is the best, his wings are partially frozen, he's somewhat in focus, and the background is even complimentary. I took about 30 photographs to get it.

Margot is learning the art of the pogo stick. The hair is so especially fun in this shot -- a lot like the Heat Miser!

My parents were in town this weekend and we had a great time. The kids were especially thrilled to spend some time with their more remote grandparents.
