"Big Bird"

The theme this week by me is "Big Bird". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that.

My favorite Big Bird is the Great Blue Heron. I really enjoy capturing them in the wild. This one is walking along the Cuyahoga River.
 It got on this log to get a better fishing view. 
This one was fishing at Lake Hodgson.
Here is one at a park in Kent, the pond was destroyed.
Here is an artsy photo from Tappan Lake.

The theme this week by Kathy is "I Didn't expect to See That Here". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that.

My daughter and her boyfriend were trying to ride the watercraft but they leaned the wrong way. I was lucky to have my camera out and here is result which I didn't expect to see.
 Once they started to lean it was all over.
My daughter decided to swim for shore while John was getting back onto the watercraft.
Whoops, that's not as easy as it looks but was fun to watch.

The theme fit perfect with 8" of snow overnight and the temperatures dropped to 10F. I dressed warm and shoveled the front sidewalk.
My wife got a couple of neat photos of the flying snow.
She got the shovel full flying away. It was heavy wet snow stuck together.
The Cuyahoga Valley had a cover of snow.
This bridge area over the turnpike was covered with snow.
I was done shoveling and using the snow blower and it cleaned up pretty well.
This is a view of the edge of the city with a covering of snow.

 As you can see the mist comes directly off the lake.
Here is a view of Cleveland through the mist.
Here is a sky that you want to steam into.
