20171112 – The Late Fall at the Pond

The migrant geese have left. The Heron tarries, will soon depart. The mallards remain. The crows come and so to the gulls. The mergansers begin to show and the last fruit ripens. Winter is coming.

20171021 – The Pond and a Tale of Two Herons

So I was the Pond… it’s a nice pond. Lots of birds for a little pond. And so the question is … can two herons be at the same pond? The answer is after a little chasing … is yes if one is in a tree. The Heron in the pond grab a snack the other in the tree was still waiting. Yep. I gotta carry the bigger camera

At the Pond : Near Summers End – 20170903

So I went to mass late. And stopped by the pond. I liken this pond to motel 6; not fancy but comfortable. Anyway it was near sunset and wouldn’t you know I got bit by mosquitoes! Two in the face (near the edge of the temple and a cheek) and my left wrist. Amazing! But the birds were coming in to settle in.
