Brown Thrasher

I found this Brown Thrasher exposed from its normal covering of shrubbery. It was enjoying the warm sun this morning in Southwest Michigan. A short time later it went back to the cover where it was impossible to see.

Connecting with Nature

I had a moment of connection with this deer as it paused this morning near a wetland area in Grand Haven, Michigan. It seemed calm and peaceful with its tail down as it looked at me and just walked into the brush moments later. The sun was low in the sky, providing a pleasing angle of light on the beautiful animal.

Easter Bunny

This little bunny chose a perfect time to come out and enjoy some early morning sunshine on this Easter Sunday. I found it as I went out this morning visiting a wetland area of Grand Haven, Michigan. Temperatures should pass 70 today in West Michigan with lots of sunshine :)

A Touch of Yellow

I’m looking forward to seeing more Yellow Warblers come back to West Michigan in a few weeks. I photographed this one as it sang last May in a nearby wooded area. It looks like it will finally feel more like Spring as the temperatures approach 70 this weekend in West Michigan :)

I attempted to capture the tranquility at day’s end in Holland, Michigan as the sun was setting with this image. Golden/orange light reflects of the ice of Lake Macatawa in the foreground.

Sing Proudly

I found this little bird singing proudly at the top of a tree today under a clear blue Spring sky in Holland, Michigan. I’m not sure what type of bird it is, maybe someone will comment as to what they think? This is the first day it’s really felt like Spring to me this year :)

Remnants of Winter

Some of Winter’s snow remained today in a wetland area of Holland, Michigan. I found this Great Blue Heron there amidst the reeds and melting snow. It was feeling like Spring as temperatures approached 50F (10C) in West Michigan with tomorrow expected to reach 60F (15.55C). (click on the image to see an enlarged more detailed view)

Log Slide

Looking through my files I found this photo I took in the upper peninsula of Michigan, west of Grand Marais. In the old days, logs were sent down a log chute to the waters of Lake Superior. Now everyone can enjoy the picturesque beauty of the shoreline.

 

Day’s End

I captured this moment yesterday as the sun was departing for the day over the cold and icy waters of Lake Michigan near the state park in Holland. Mounds of ice can be seen in the foreground with the open waters of the big lake beyond.

I found this Northern Cardinal today in Ottawa County, Michigan. It was sunny with blue skies most of the day which made a great background for this colorful bird.
