I took all these photos on the same day this month. Some of the trees were showing buds and the birds were spring singing. But looks can be deceiving. While the little birds were enjoying the blue sky, the waterfowl were dealing with ice. By the way, if anyone can help identify the bird in the second photo, it would be appreciated. I believe it to be a warbler of some kind.

This is the first photo I've posted that was taken with my new Canon 40mm "pancake" lens. I haven't had the opportunity to use it much, but will be shooting with it exclusively in the near future.
1/60 sec. f/11 ISO 100
You can see why the lens is called a "pancake". It barely extends beyond the grip of my camera. The lens makes for a lightweight, unobtrusive rig and it has a close focus distance of eleven inches. I'm anxious to find out what it can do.
