52-Week Photo Challenge – Week 2 “Winter”

So the challenge for Week 2 is “Winter”.  Let’s be honest here…. I hate winter.  Ugh!  But! The one redeeming thing about winter in New Mexico is overwintering birds!

I spend the entire winter looking for all the visiting waterfowl in the greater Albuquerque area.  That’s what gets me through the winter season without getting depressed LOL!

So my photo of the week is of a duck-filled pond in northern New Mexico with the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the background.

While visiting these lakes, I was lucky enough to get a lifer bird! A Barrow’s Goldeneye!

For Scarlett winter has a whole different meaning.  To her it means fun, fun, fun!!! This picture is of her pulling on the snow shovel as I’m trying to shovel snow off the back patio.  She made my task twice as difficult but I couldn’t deny her all that fun.
