Beaver Pond in Winter

Beaver Pond in Winter

This pond is along the Larry Scott Trail south of Port Townsend, WA. There isn’t access to the shore of the pond … it’s all private property … so a shot through the trees is about all I could get. I’ve seen lots of water birds, an eagle perching on one of the overlooking trees, and some water critter that looked like a beaver or such. It was daytime, so the beaver answer is less than certain.

The image below was taken along this same stretch of the Larry Scott. It follows the old railroad grade and it drops off fairly sharply on either side along this section.

Walk in the Snow

Tree and Bench

I walk often at Fort Worden St Park in Port Townsend. It’s a large park with lots of interesting photo subjects. But when it snows (not often in PT), the park changes and all the usual views are different. It all means that the usual scenes are new and dramatically different. Such as these two images.

Icicles on Douglas Fir

Icicles on Douglas Fir

The sun on the Douglas Fir had melted some of the snow and as the temperature dropped, it froze into these lovely icicles. I was getting a little chilly by this time, or I might I spent more time with these.

Greedy Little Buggers

Greedy Little Bugger

We’ve been having a cold spell here in the Puget Sound area. Cold enough that the nectar in my hummingbird feeders froze up. So, I’ve been shuttling them inside to thaw them out. Unfortunately, I’ll get one greedy little bugger keeping other hummers away. Even when it’s not feeding, it will perch nearby and chase off any other comers. Seems like an almost human behavior… when you reflect on the behavior of some of the worse examples of those in the news.
