Two Green Herons

Saturday morning, I was taking photos of a green heron at Lake Tamarack (see first photo below), trying to follow it as it flew from branch to branch along the shore.   After a while, a second green heron came onto the scene (see second photo below).  At one point, I was able to get them both in one photo (see photo above).  Click here to link to a post with more green heron photos that were taken in May.

Pollinators Galore

Yesterday was the final day of 2019’s National Pollinator Week.  While the power was out at our cabin, I took a morning stroll down one of Bent Tree’s trails, and came across a patch of blooming Downy False-foxglove that was literally buzzing with pollinators.  Look closely at the photo above to see a pollen basket on the bee.

Hole 7 Turtles

Yesterday’s post mentioned that I went to play golf on Monday, in between fawn photo shoots.  The photo below was taken during that round of golf, at the pond on Hole 7.  Click here for a related previous post (from almost one year ago) that explains why my golf game is not so great.
