Michael Furlong sent this shot of Matt Miller of Johnsburg, sunning on the ice of McKinley harbor (correction, I believe that should be in Milwaukee, as a reader noted) in the third week of February.
It's been one of those years, where you have go with the flow, so to speak.
Which brings me to one of my favorite annual spring quests with my camera. Canada geese that returned before the ice is gone.
I found these on an in-between lake Wednesday morning. At least they had some open water.
