This railing has succumbed to the unrelenting growth surrounding it this season.
Checking Things Out
This Green Heron was just checking out his surroundings before flying off to the other side of the lake.
A Closer Look
This Green Heron had something catch his eye this morning as he was perched on this rock. He eventually did jump down and found a snack.
Not much going on at Lake Katherine this morning and then this Monarch appeared and found a nice perch on a milkweed.
Lake Katherine has a small enclosure that acts as a library. People can drop off a book and take a book. This is a view of one of the sides of the enclosure early yesterday morning.
Take the Shot
This Goldfinch looked right at the lens after he took his perch in a tree. He definitely knew he was being watched!
This Blue Heron was intently fishing the rocky area along one of the island shorelines at Lake Katherine.
Captured this image of a female Redwing Blackbird as she was working her way back home after finding a snack.
First Monarch butterfly of the season for me. I had just finished a walk around Lake Katherine and this one was checking out the milkweeds along the shoreline. He didn't stay too long in one spot and I wished I had a better lens on my camera at the time, but it is, what it is!
This Blue Heron chose a mice little perch to wait for his evening meal.
