The Winds Of Change

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Casting Seeds 022220” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The big blue truck comes to a rest on the edge of the marsh at Muddelty Creek. I had decided to take a few minutes and see if the Red wing Blackbirds had returned. I pressed the button on my door and lowered the windows to listen for that familiar trolling call to ring out through the cattails. There was a few random calls from the chickadees but no red wing Blackbirds. At least not yet. Out in the distance a few ducks paddled around in the water at the very outer limit of my longest lens. I tried to stalk in closer but one loud quack and the whole flock became airborne at once disappearing into the bushes. And then the wind came filling the air with downy seeds that circled in the eddies. It was almost like snow. Everywhere I looked the cattail seed floated softly by. This area has the largest concentration of cattails I’ve seen. The highland delta is a bit of a rare thing here.

I decided to take the opportunity to capture the moment when the seeds found the breeze and discovered that the breezes were changing direction. A gust would come from the south and a few minutes later the next one would hail from the North.

A breeze from the North moving the down in the opposite direction of the feature image.

The southern breeze had more activity today and that means that seasons are changing. It’s only 25 days before the first day of Spring!

  1. Yes, I am ready for change and Spring. However, in Interior Alaska, the snow will not melt until late April or early May. We are getting more daylight, which is nice even in sub zero temperatures. We go from winter to break up and then summer, quickly. Enjoy hearing about your West Virginia Spring. Hazel

    1. Thank you Hazel ❤ It's normal for us to have a significant snowfall in March ( significant here means you need to clean out the driveway) and then a dusting of snow around Easter. We still have a lot of time before everything erupts but I like to count all the little "tickmarks" along the way.

  2. This is very neat! Thank you for sharing. 🙂

    I’ve had a fondness for cattails, I think from my childhood and living
    and swimming in a pond near our home. God is good to bless us
    with such things, and He has blessed me with your sharing and video!

    Just curious – is their significance to the numbers you have in the title?

    May Jesus continue to richly bless you.

    Because of Jesus,
    Cindy Fox

    1. Thank you very much Cindy ❤

      Yes, the blessings of God are all around us if we look for them.

      The numbers in the image title are my stock number of the photos. They are based on the date that the photo was taken and provide me a system of recalling file is someone orders a copy.
