This week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is A Hint of Spring.
Definitely a case of digging into the archives as our weather seems to be worse since the middle of February with no hint of a spring.
In this part of Ontario one of the first signs of spring is the arrival of the American Robins (Turdus migratorius) that will spend the summer with us. The males normally arrive first and fight one another establishing territories hoping to attract a mate when the females arrive.
I picked this shot because this recently arrived male looks like it’s spoiling for a fight with the camera. Taken on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario.
