Snow snow snow!!

It snowed a little here in Columbia, MO. the other evening!! It was SOOOO beautiful that night with the trees glistening white and the stars shining brightly!!Wish I could of captured it on camera, but even a picture wouldn't be able to capture it all! Sometimes things are just better in person. However, I didn't get any night pictures, but I did take a few (well a little more than few, like a couple hundred :) pictures at sunrise the next morning, before it all melted away!!
 At first light....

 The sun is rising!!

 Snow on the trees!

 Sun shining on the tops of the trees!

 My dog!! :-)

Red-Tailed Hawk

For the last several weeks I have been trying to capture more wildlife photos. However, I have not been as successful as I would like. The deer seem to like to wander through our yard when I don't have my camera with me, :) the birds (more so the cardinals) don't ever come to eat at the feeder when there is a human outside, and than there has been a red-tailed hawk avoiding me. :-) I do believe I need to take another whole day to take pictures of various things, like I did in September :). For I don't wait as long as is necessary for some of the wildlife, and than some of the other wildlife's timing isn't always in schedule with my day. =) 

Anyway.... to the pictures. :)
 Can you spot the hawk?? :) This shot was taken a few days after the second photo. I was able to make it outside and close(ish) to the tree where he was. He did keep flying away though, and unfortunately I haven't seen him in his (this) usual spot now for a while. I think I might of scared him off. :{
Okay, so I wasn't originally going to post this picture (due to the fact it's not very good :), but, it has an interesting short story to it. :) I was sitting in our living room visiting with my sister-n-law and watching my niece play. While i was however, I spotted this hawk in the trees near our house. I wasn't sure if it really was a bird just with my eyes, so I got our binoculars to look. Well, I thought before I went outside to try and capture him through my camera, I would try taking a photo through the binoculars! :) Genius right? :-) Well, as you can see it didn't work very well. :) The above picture is what I got, can you see him? Also, unfortunately he flew off before I was even able to make it outside to try. :) So this was all I got the first day I saw him. :)

Verse and Bird

Here's another photo I got. =)

I Need your all's help!! So, I'm hoping to start a Scripture/Quotation Wednesday, to go along with Picture Monday, however I am not always the best at picking verses and such to put on pictures. So, if you leave a comment with your favorite verse or quote, I'll see if I can put it on one of my pictures!!! =) I would love to hear from you!! :-) I'm always needing good suggestions! :) Thanks!!
(oh, if you want a different version besides NASB, you'll have to say. =)

First Snow of 2012 (in Columbia, MO. :)

We got snow!!! =) Though it wasn't much it was enough to get some pictures and take a few sled runs down our hill. =) I Love Snow!! =) Here's the few photos I got! :) Mostly birds. :)

 The above one is my favorite. :) 
(wish the bird-feeder pole wasn't there, but I knew if I moved the bird would leave. :)
