a contrast in seasons ...
Winter melted away quickly and sneakily switched tactics at nightfall!
What started out a sunny winter day in the 40's°,
dropped to the teens after sundown.
Along with the drop came sleet then snow...
just another wacky weather day in Wisconsin.
Looks like something was forgotten out on the deck?
Or did we just forget to fill up this bird feeder?
Did some marauder come and empty it when we weren't watching???
Ooops! I think it was the first... either that or we get some real hardy hummingbirds?
I sure would like to see one is its down parka... (snickers)
This was shot through our lovely old plastic storm window on the outside of double pan glass (excuses for the not to clear images). You can see the reflection of the yellow deck light in the upper right corner. A contrast in seasons? Yellow lights (normally used for bug confusion in the summer nights) and an empty forlorn hummingbird feeder.
You can safely say we have no bugs out at night during winter, and if I even see a hummingbird wearing a down parka I might just win a prize, if I can capture it on my little camera! I am long ready for the warm weather that brings them to my window, sigh.
Poor frosted feeder not to mention the weighted down pine tree drooping over the edge of the deck.
A much clearer view of this contrast, taken looking the opposite direction.
Needless to say, it came down after a few days. Washed and put away, like it should be for next season. Silly me...
(my first (part 1) contrast in seasons can be seen HERE )
until next time...
Have you ever forgotten something way to long that you ended up with a contrast in seasons?
