Red and Green

Last Sunday, I was snapping photos of some red cardinal flowers along the edge of Lake Tamarack and finally realized that there was a little green heron in the middle (see second photo below for closeup).

Hummingbird Camouflage

Cardinal flowers (Lobelia cardinalis) are blooming along the streams in Bent Tree. A hummingbird was darting away from the flower when I snapped this picture. The background vegetation is the perfect camouflage for the hummingbird.
