Here's a sweet, little bird, posing on a sign:
Here's a bird Mom has probably only shot once before:
Hey, look who's up in a tree!
|Great Blue Heron|
Speaking of herons, here's another variety:
|The ever-elusive Green Heron|
Mom said she had to shoot that into the sun, with the birdie in the shadows. She may have used an HBO word to describe the uncooperative nature of this bird. Maybe. (Good chance of it, but let's stay serene!)
Moving right along ... anyone up for a game of volleyball?
Umm ... perhaps another time?
Here's a colorful bird!
|Female Baltimore Oriole. Or a juvenile. We don't know.|
And here's an even more colorful bird!
Mom whispered to her birding buddy that she'd love to see a woodpecker in that hole, peeking out!
Well, he kind of got it backwards, but it was STILL creative and rather cooperative of him!
This guy shared the tree with the Red-Headed Woodpecker:
|Yellow-Shafted Northern Flicker|
When Mom was driving to another part of the park, she spotted this next guy in one of the little beaver ponds. She thought he was someone else, so she stopped her vehicle in the middle of the road, threw it into reverse, and backed up to take a shot of him.
|This is not an Egret, it is a Great Blue Heron.|
Cool picture anyway, Mom! Even if you have ... (wait for it) ... no Egrets.
And here's a shot of one of our favorite wildflowers!
|Snow On The Mountain!|
Seriously. Siberian Huskies and Snow On The Mountain - what a great pairing!
Anyway, we hope you feel nice and serene now! Have a great rest of Sunday!
Cammie and Mags!
