The birds are beautiful, but there are few things as engaging as turtles sunning themselves on a log.

Great shots from the pond:)
Nice to see places without snow:)
It was snowstorm here in the morning, but now the sun is shining, but it's expected more snow tomorrow. March comes with a lot of different weather here, but I believe the snow is gone within a month.
Wish you a nice week:)
