Signs of Spring!

Eastern Meadowlark, originally uploaded by Hannibals Animals.

A welcome sound of Spring at Goose Lake Prairie, this meadowlark was a tough bird to photo, as my approach was never welcome. I did catch some distant frames of flight and a few poses not very "postable". But exciting!

Most of these shots are not exactly great, but the excitement factor was way up seeing so many signs of Spring!

I can almost hear that tufted titmouse singing "Peter, Peter, Peter" What a neat shot! I missed a couple of flocks so snow geese flying right over my house yesterday. Yes, spring is coming - at last!

Nice "spring" series! Love how you caught the Meadowlark in flight. That's not easy to do!
