This ain’t February.

I mean, the calendar says it is, but it really isn’t.

Cattle don’t forage on snowless ground here in February:

Bulls don’t paw and grub through the rattling corn stubble:

Mount Holyoke doesn’t watch over fallow fields of flattened grasses as the sun sets:

No, this isn’t February – it’s something else.

It ain’t right, I tell ya.

The top two were reeled in by Ollie, the last one is the work of that scoundrel Elliot.  That boy gets around.

On The Ride Home. April 22, 2010

Took the slightly longer way home today, down along the Deerfield river, looking for flowering trees at the river’s edge.  Instead I found a young bald eagle rending a rainbow trout up in a big oak tree:

I was screened from it by enough branches to be able to watch it for a while without spooking it.  Unfortunately they also obscured the eagle, but hey, I tried!

Thanks to Gizmo for this one, propped up as he was in my driver’s side seat.
