End of February finally

Just before Christmas I bought a GoPro camera, I worked with it for over a month but I was having trouble, I thought it was me but ended up being the camera. After a few emails with GoPro in California and a couple of weeks I finally got a new one sent to me. They were very easy to work with my problem with the camera.
 I have been taking some videos and stop motion, the unit is working well and I just need to get a better handle on it myself.  Here is a couple I did today. When I speeded up the snowshoe one it looks like the Walk of the Penguin.

The other is a stop motion of cleaning the upper roof on the house before it all falls down on the lower roof.

Backyard birds

With all the extreme cold these days the birds are flocking to the feeders, I have been refilling my feeders 2 to 3 times a day. Mostly Redpolls, Evening Grosbeaks, and Chickadees.

Single Lake on the snowmobile trail

Drove west today out to Single Lake where the snowmobile trail comes up to the road, walked down the trail down towards the minnow pond, and from there into the North Arm of Gowganda Lake. Lots of snow in the trees some of them snapped off.

Up early this morning

Up early this morning to put some more logs in the furnace, it was so bright out I didn't have to turn the lights on.  The moon is still very bright which cast great shadows in the backyard.  Thru the window I got some good shots, of the backyard and a bonus the school bus coming into town and going out (notice the roof light flashing).  In the picture of the back yard in the sky you can see part of the constellation of Cassiopeia.

February - Snow Moon

Lots of snow and very cold nights for some time now, the daytime temps have been more moderate but when the wind is up it's cold.
Last night was the full moon and in February is called the Snow Moon which is just what we have lots of snow.  The Hedlund Marsh pic is in black and white, not much sense in colour these days.
