We got dumped on with snow over the last couple of days, so I decided to take my favorite winter drive (the farmlands SE of Rexburg). It was a beautiful evening. Here’s a picture:

One of my favorite places in winter is Texas Slough, a spring fed waterway west of Rexburg that stays open (usually) even during the really cold winter days. I ventured out the other morning when the thermometer read ten below zero. I managed a couple of decent images before I just couldn’t stand it any longer. It must have been pretty cold, because I rarely see this waterway frozen.
I participated in the Howe, ID Christmas Bird Count today. Starting temperature was -11. Many years there are hundreds of hawks and several falcons, but there doesn’t seem to be much around this year. We did see a Prairie Falcon kill a Meadowlark in flight.
We also saw killed coyotes displayed prominently on the edge of town. Welcome to Howe.
I went out this morning to photograph a warm water slough (warm enough that it doesn’t freeze in below zero temperatures) west of Rexburg. It was so cold (my phone said -4), but quite lovely. I shot both digital and film. I’m posting a digital version for now.
