And thank you for the Birthday wishes - it snowed all day on Thursday - it was perfect.
I trudged out early that morning in hopes of catching the horses coming in, but I was out there for over an hour and the silly things decide they didn't want to come in. The snow swirled all around me as it fell and I finally made my way back into the house when I turned on my camera and the battery died. :(
The chickens must have had big plans. Even the 6 degree morning did not deter them from greeting me at the door:
It is hard to get a picture of them since they run after me where ever I go. I feel like a, well...mother hen. :)
DH and I went to feed early on Friday in order to beat the slushy roads that were certain to appear with the sun. I wanted to stop every time the sun glinted on the ice covered landscape and capture it with my camera, but time was of the essence and the cattle take precedence over an icy cactus. :)
They were grateful:
Much haste was made when they spied the feed truck:
Their breath was warm and frosty as they gathered around, in anticipation of their dose of cake.They are going to appreciate the warmth of the sun today too
Its a wonder I ever get anything accomplished in the house since I could spend all day outside capturing the things that catch my eye through the camera lens.
I just throw my little pocket camera in whenever I leave the house, but its not the best choice when snapping pictures in the sun - its hard to see anything on the LCD screen. I much prefer the viewfinder on my DSL, But this little camera is much easier to cart around and every once in a while I find it captures things that you just don't expect:
Its much too nice to spend it indoors so I'm hopping in with DH again and checking a few more pastures.
