JL Neighborhood 1st Day of Spring, 3 photos, 03/20/2018

First Day of Spring in the Jordan Lake Neighborhood
 
It was wet, grey, windy and the eagle nests hard to photograph, so …
 
A very wet bedraggled Cooper’s hawk paused on a post to try to dry his feathers.
 
 
The maples were resplendent with their winged seeds.
 
 
And a single raindrop caught my attention as it glittered against a dark green boldly veined leaf and reflected the surrounding trees.
