The first day of spring in PA was glorious-70 degrees and sunny! So was the second day. I celebrated this long-awaited event by going to the wildlife conservancy near my house to see if there were any signs of life yet. All I saw was this:
a beautiful crocus among the brown leaves. That was it. I was happy, because after 70" of snow in the region this winter, this was a welcome sight. The next day I went to Peace Valley Park in Doylestown for the first time. It was full of life- bikers, hikers, birders, birds, waterfowl and kids. I "perched" in the bird blind and caught my favorite bird enjoying the day:
a Northern Cardinal! This one sight made up for the whole crappy winter- I have been trying to catch a shot of a cardinal for four years! They are so beautiful, I could look at them all day. But instead, I called it a day and thanked God for my very favorite season.
