When it comes to birds I was lucky today. On my walk around a lake I noticed a movement in the grass. It was a Goldcrest. A bird I have not seen in years. And when I saw them it was only for a few seconds. They are so quick and moves on at once.

This time, however, was different. It was in the grass for several minutes. On the other hand I got problem following it. A strong sunlight was also difficult and the mist I got on the camera that dimmed my sight. Most of the time I just saw it´s bottom.  Took a lot of shots so I should be certain to have at least a few worth sharing.

This is the best shots I have from this bird, if I don´t count the ones I have from a ringing session. But that time they were captured and handled by personnel.

Tested a "bad" cat image in Topaz and found a nice wood filter in it. The snowy condition had taken all detail out of the snow. This filter, kind of, saved it.

This is why I don´t like glass in front of art. No matter where I stood I was reflected. Or anyone else.

Sometimes a dull sky is good. It does not steal the show from other things.

I found a new toy that I started to explore. For a long time I have wanted a feature that makes this "simple" type of sketches as I don´t know how to do it on my own and my version of Photoshop don´t look like this. So, I will keep this program :)  Topaz!

Skies at Eriksberg

A part of the Eriksbergs castle. A huge barn, I think for grain,  and houses, maybe staff quarters.
And the grey one. Not sure of it. I peeked in there once and there was old stuff inside. Maybe a small museum? (Turned out to be an old stable for horses.)

Today was mostly sunny after a little snowfall at night. The Bullfinch shone brightly in the sunshine.
At the forest feeder the snow seemed popular. The tree creeper ate it. A lot!

I brought "my girls"for some fun at the skateboard park. Well, my grandchildren are grownups several years now. And lives in another town. And snow is fun as long it is not tons of it.
