Final Photos of February Part 3 of 3

We leave you today with the third and final installment of Mickey Raine’s final photos of February from DeKorte Park. By way of the proud mini-motorcylist, Mickey says,  “The metal Chopper Dude artwork with Old Glory in hand is something as a special tribute to a very, very dear friend.”   Thanks for a great day of photos, Mickey!

Final February Photos

Mickey Raine sent in three sets of amazing photos from Mill Creek Marsh and DeKorte Park taken in the last weeks of February. That’s perfect for us. We’ll start the day with this batch, post more in the noon hour and then finish the day with the final series. These Ring-billed Gulls, Killdeer and Mummichogs were alll photographed at Mill Creek.

Mickey says it best himself:

One awaits the start of March with some anticipation and doubts as to whether the early spring like weather will dominate the calendar or a final reminder from Mother Nature that winter is not over, yet, dropping a ton of snow to let us know who is in control.  But, to tell the truth, as long as it is not the sort that causes hardship to anyone, it can be a lot of fun when embracing the beauty and the wildlife that accentuates the landscape under such conditions.
