7 Swans a Swimming....... (CameraDiva)
There were just a few geese and some beautiful swans at the Ruby Marsh National Wildlife Refuge because most of it's frozen over....but soon the spring migration will occur and the marshes will be full of birds once again. This marsh is a major stopover along the pacific flyway, providing nesting and feeding grounds.

Bound for Snow (CountryDreaming)
The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad train. As quickly as the snow flurries had kicked up, they disappeared.

Rain Party (Feather3)
Various gull species: California, Western, Glaucous-winged (one), Mew and Herring, all seem to be having a party at Virgin Creek Beach, in the rain

Over My Head (Feather3)
I decided to walk before the storm came in, so I wandered over to the headlands above Pudding Creek Beach. When I arrived, it was getting windy. I noticed a male American Kestrel hovering above a flock of Western Meadowlarks that were feeding on the ground, so I got as close as I dared and sat down. No sooner had I sat down, the kestrel flew right over me and began hovering, staring down at me as if to say "HA HA HA, you can't DO this." :) Hands were a bit shaky from the wind and the excitement of having this bird come right over my head.

A mere 6 weeks old and already capable of stealing your heart!

River Reflections (Leia)
The Columbia River has many inlets. This one captured the sunset colors in it's reflection. We sat here waiting for a train (to cross the tracks on the right birm) but it arrived too late and ran too fast to capture it in such low light

One lone poppy stood opened to greet the sun among a host of daisies. The clouds in the distance take with them the last of the rain for a few days.

This is the largest megalithic site on the Iberian Peninsula. Today it's structure contains around 100 monoliths (menhirs) some of them decorated with engravings. It's built on a hill facing East and situated a few miles from the town of Evora.

Valley fog (PeterHere)
Another visual treat looking out my window this morning. It was a fantastic sunrise. Watching the valley fog lifting from the river bed far below, is something I never get tired of watching. The fog lifts rapidly as the sun heats up the morning air.

Sunset at the Salton Sea (Tsurai)
A view to the northwest of the Salton Sea, the huge briny lake that fills a large portion of the Coachella Valley. It's a mess, full of agricultural chemicals and toxic blue-green algae, but remains a very important wintering ground for tens of thousands of waterfowl.

Breathtaking photos - wonderful selection of talented photographers. I often wonder if these folks would be willing to sell prints. There are several among your selection I would gladly pay for.

Thanks for putting my Wood-duck shot here with all of these beautiful photos! That duck has been at the top of my list for some time now! The male is usually around but was not found that day. The female usually stays at a distance so I was glad I stopped by!

Have a great day!
