My adventures in the woods, streams, rivers, fields, and lakes of Michigan

The Weekly Photo Challenge: Together

It’s that time of year, new life is hatching out all over the place. One thing that all the newly hatched birds have in common s that they tend to stick together, so that will be my take on this week’s challenge. That, and the birds pairing up so that there will be new hatchlings.

Then, there is the best “Together” shot I have ever taken.

That’s it for this one, hope you enjoyed it, and thanks for stopping by!

  5. Seeing those mourning doves all puffed up makes me think it was cold that morning.
