Sounds of Spring

Linking up with Skywatch Friday 

Good Times are here, the Orioles won their opening day game against the Boston Red Sox. Our temps have been in the 60's, it is starting to feel more like spring. Finally!
Besides hearing the birds in Spring, my yard comes alive with frog sounds.. Sometimes it can be so loud, I love it. I made a youtube video listening to the frogs while watching the crescent moon.




The crescent moon taken on 4/1/14




My froggy sounds on youtube, sorry my hubby came along and made some noise with the trash can.


A shot of just one of the Great Blue Herons on the nest.


This shot above show more of the nest that the Heron is standing on..


It maybe a pretty colorful sky later, the sun is setting.


 Thank you for visiting my post! I hope you enjoyed...the sounds of spring..I hope to see you on Saturday sharing your critters..


To see more pretty skies from around the world please visit  Skywatch Friday


Thanks to Sylvia, Yogi  and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday!   I wish everyone a safe and happy long weekend.

Hi Eileen, Ooh aah, I sure like your moon picture! I so enjoy seeing Great Blue Herons! You are lucky to see the big bird in its rookery. Outstanding! Have a really pleasant day today!

We have a small koi pond in our backyard and this time of year it's full of frogs. And they give us a nightly symphony of croaking. I don't mind though - it's a sign that spring is here. Glad you are getting some warmer temps!

Beautiful Great Heron and the moon, in video, superb.
Reader Wil said…
Thanks again for sharing nature's beauty with us. Your crescent moon is excellent. It shows that you don't live in the north of your country. Our crescent moon is more vertical than yours.
Have a great weekend.

Dearest Eileeen;
Wow; Beautiful crescent moon listening the sound of frog♪♪♪ I remember many frogs making sounds (noise, haha) in the rice paddy when young. But recently, not many rice paddy around my area. Wonderful to be able to connect with You-tube☆☆☆

Love your pics of gorgeous Great Blue Heron and the sky♡♡♡

Sending you Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*
Debbie said…
It must be just awesome to have a heron, so close to home. I suspect we are in for some big treats and some amazing images!!

I always enjoy your moon and sky shots, both are so soothing!!
Wow, you nailed that moon shot! Great focus and detail!

Wonderful photos for Skywatch, Eileen.
I love the sound of frogs too, but to hear them sing so loud in the garden would be just a little too much, I think. :-)
Nice shots for Skywatsch, Eilee, I specially love the heron on the nest.
I love the sound of frogs too, but to hear som emany of them so loud in the garden, would be a little bit too much for us and the neighbours, I think. :-)

You captured the moon so well and I also love the heron.
Irene said…
Love your moon shot, Eileen. Finally spring is here too. Lovely to hear the birds singing in the trees around my house. Got a few bird shots, but they didn't come out so well as yours :)

Happy weekend!
