I adventured down to the Little Red Schoolhouse in Willow Springs on Saturday morning last weekend for a photo meet-up. My camera, just a simple point-and-shoot paled in comparison to some of the equipment these pros brought along. But it was fun!
My best pic was this one of the robin. Here are a couple of others.
The large lake was mostly ice-covered, but that didn’t stop the migrating birds from making a pit stop there. Saw lots of geese, gulls, and even two sandhill cranes.
One of the other participants had gotten some great pics of beavers at the same location just a few days before, but we didn’t spot any. We got good views of lichen, moss, fallen leaves, mud, and ice, though!
We have had some glimpses of spring the last couple of weeks–along with reminders of winter. Some warmer temps along with snow storms. So, I judge that it’s still soup weather. ≥÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷÷oplllllllllllllllllllllll
Sorry about that…my cat walked across my keyboard.
This soup is delicious! The flavor is rich and sausage-y. The little bit of red wine gives it some body too.
