Often I can weave my wanderings into a cohesive story. Today that is very difficult. Instead what follows is a collection of quick impressions and observations.
The morning was very quiet. There wasn't a lot going on. I was starting to panic about what I would post. There were some high points.
The Robin that posed in great early morning light.
The river was pretty calm and the trees were reflecting in the water. I loved these geese on the water, but wished I could have gotten ahead of them.
The Tree Swallows are busy nesting. We can not wait to see their babies.
Hopefully, they won't end up like these turtle eggs which made some animal a tasty dinner.
These Chickadees must have young, because they are busy collecting food
And taking out the trash.
While waiting for the Chickadees to return, I spotted this mink. I didn't notice the Northern Water Snake in the background until I uploaded the photos. I wonder if they were having an encounter.
Finally an in focus Great Blue Heron flight shot. Now I just need to get them coming at me, not going away.
The Red-winged Blackbirds have switched from calling and displaying, to collecting food. Their babies must have hatched.
In fact, I'm not sure, but I think this may be a fledgling Red-winged Blackbird.
The afternoon winds brought with them some threatening clouds. The best part was the way that it would dramatically light selective parts of the landscape.
