Very nice! I like your photo style. The one with the little waterfall fits the fantasy dream of the perfect place to be.

Is it a great blue heron?

Is there a prize for the correct answer?

Yesterday on the way home the temps were hovering around 106 F., and as I went over a bridge I wanted to see how low the creek was and spotted a deer standing in the creek.

I am thinking it was trying to get some relief from the scorching hot weather.

Found this baby bird on the lower level breezeway at mom's apt yesterday. I picked it up and took in inside to show Gdaughter and youngest son had to catch it again. I then went out and up to upper level found the nest on the wall. There were at least two other babies. The mom and dad were buzzing around. I returned the bird to it's nest and took these photos!

Nice pictures everyone

Today in my backyard I was watching about 5 sparrows taking a dirt bath. I couldn't believe the holes they made.

It's so cute when they do that.

Ding, ding, ding!!!! We have a winner! ANd our parting gifts for today include a slightly used jigsaw puzzle, with most of the pieces intact!

Yesterday, I saw my owl friend fishing on the other side of the lake again. This morning, I got to see a few of our lake turtles, trying to hide from me, but they didn't succeed, the little devils.
