Picture of the Day - "Promise" - May 19, 2017

Wow. Can you believe this weather. Warm sunny morning to dark, dreary cold afternoon. And I do mean COLD, with the dark clouds and mist. The temperature dropped over 10 degrees in about 2 to 3 hours time. We went and checked out a new (to us) area, for birds. There were reports of a Virginia Rail and a Sora in the area so we went to check it out. Saw lots of Tree Swallows, Canada Geese, Red-winged Blackbirds and some Black Ducks but only heard the Virginia Rail. We did manage to catch sight of five Goslings swimming with Mom and Dad. There were a few trees in bloom as well, promising of better weather to come.  Taken with Canon 70D, Canon 100-400mm @ 400mm, 1/640 sec, f/5.6 and ISO 1250
