Duck crossing and dust bathing

It's time for a change of scene 


Reconnoitering... 

Ducks on the move. Perhaps "the grass is greener on the other side"? 

Also -- tonight we happened to witness a flock of sparrows taking dust baths (another way they clean their feathers). I wasn't able to get photos or a video - but if you're curious to see them in action, click here for a short YouTube clip.

Ducklings

The first I've seen this year 

Must be something good there.... 

I think there are 8 of them

The little ones catch up   

There are always a couple of stragglers....

Creatures Large and Small

How many bees do you see?

Caught in the act!   

One fish, two fish... 

 Look for the lunker lurking below

Surprise at the Nature Center

I was leaving the MK Center when a fawn suddenly popped out of the brush onto the main path. Very energetic (and cute), it bounced down the walkway. 

Then, another fawn appeared. Twins!

Hmmm, shall I go down here? 

The mother and one of the fawns spies the photographer. 

Keeping an eye on this strange person who keeps following.... 

The mother and her fawns. The photographer is still being watched. 

Okay kids, it's time to go... 


One last long look....

A bit of history, part I




 "The Greatest Moments of a Girl's Life" (enlarge the photo for more details) 




A few of the items we saw at the Bishops' House. More to come soon.... 

Clarification -- the items were part of a vintage and antique show, a fundraiser for the Bishops' House. Most of what we saw does not "live" there.
