I have four images today. Some of them are from my Green Island visit of last Sunday.
At the end of our patio we have a cement bird bath, which is a real chore to keep clean and filled with fresh water. It it is heavily used by the birds in our neighborhood so I’m happy to do it. I love watching the birds take baths and getting drinks. I captured this robin at the end of his frolicking bath. I wanted to get some images of the water being splashed into the air but for some reason I was having trouble getting focus lock on him. I do like this image however.
A pair of Great Egrets are stalking some food in one of the canals at Green Island. I was happy to see a fairly large group of egrets on this visit. I haven’t seen many of them this year. I think they are such an eloquent bird I enjoy watching them.
It has been a busy week at work with lots of benefit meetings at the various banks. Lots of travel and early mornings so I haven’t had much time to do any photographing. I plan to do some exploring this weekend.
I saw this little guy jumping / flying to the different lily pads and I was finally able to capture this shot of him.
Finally another shot of an egret sitting in a tree. I’m just not used to seeing these big birds sitting in trees. They let me get very close to them and didn’t seem to mind my presence.
That’s all for today. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
The first snd last photographs are brilliant. The sharpness is out of this world

I’m glad to see you had some wildlife sigthings at the wetlands last weekend. The “little guy” is btw. a female Red-winged Blackbird. I was happy to see in your other blog post that all seven cygnets were still alive.
I haven’t produced much so far during the month of June. Life (work) stood in the way too many times. I hope finding the time for a visit down in Green Island this evening.
Thank you for your comment. I had fun at GI although there was as much going on as I had hoped for. I was also happy to see the swans were all safe and doing well. Hope all is well with you guys.
