Ice

Ice, this is the time of year for it to melt here in the Okanagan. Some chaps were fishing on the ice the other day on Wood Lake when another chap came by on a bicycle, greeted them, then proceeded to disappear beneath the ice.....end of story.
Ice-Flowers? Snow-drops come on the first of March here...

Ice Patterns on Skaha Lake at Kaleden

Wild Swans and other birds preen and feed preparatory to flying North to nest.
 Vaseux Lake with melting Ice

North Skaha Lake Sunshine. No ice here!
 Yesterday the ice patterns on Skaha Lake were interesting, with a lovely crescent shape to the edge, and cracks appearing with different colours of water depending on the sky above. There is only ice in the centre of Skaha, it is clear at both ends, and on Sunday some men were kite-surfing at the North end, it was so windy...
At Pigeon Lake in Alberta however, the ice doesn't melt until mid-May...

Horrible ending to the story. Your photos are really good. I can see the swans wishing more of the ice would be gone.
