I suppose we are far enough in to this experiment that some new eyeballs might be wondering what's going on here. For a refresher, click here to read my inaugural post. For the rest of you, you know the drill. Today I have to make a slight correction. A few days ago I said we won't be "seeing" UVB light until March or even April. But apparently even now there is a brief window after noon where there is the opportunity to receive some UVB light and make Vitamin D. The catch is you gotta expose some skin, and I don't know about you, but I'm not ready for that yet at this time of year. Perhaps that is the reason for the discrepancy depending on the source with respect to UVB exposure. Also, point of clarification, I'm referring to central NY. Latitudes south will have more exposure to UVB, points north less. Thank you to Mrs. Dr. Sunshine for her crack research on this. In any case, another beautiful sunrise today with the added bonus of chickadee accompaniment. I am scoring this one for Sun as there was definitely a direct sighting, even though I didn't quite capture it's full glory in the pictures. Enjoy!

Ah, Mr. Peanutbutter. 99% of the time he is a very good boy. He looks like he is sitting attentively, but if you look closely you will see his butt is hovering above the snow. This is not to keep his butt from freezing; he is ready to go after something. If his leash were not attached he would not be in this frame. But what is it that has their attention?

That explains it. Angus, their sister from another mister, lurking in the brush behind me.
