I was surprised to find a winking Old Man Winter blowing up a storm in a rock wall in Ocala, Florida! I love the “cheeks” made from shell fossils. “Old Man Winter, like the elfish creature Jack Frost, is a personification of winter, sometimes also called Father Winter.”

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.
