You have captured such beautiful character in those little robins. The detail is superb. And love the beautiful water view. Gorgous colours in reflection. But i must admit, the squirrels with those appealing bushy tails win me every time.

It's nice to see the snow gone and the ice that stayed on ground since before Christmas has also melted.
PS: Colder next week. Yuck!

I am so happy for you -- it is definitely time for Spring. And a beautiful Spring it is (except maybe for the moulting squirrels, but they'll be cooler that way I guess.)
