When I uploaded photos for this post, I uploaded 83. Don't worry. There aren't 83 pics here. I just couldn't decide from the thumbnails!
And why? Well, two beautiful Ditch Days! There is a bit of color coming through...
...and it's beginning to look like fall.
Ellie and Harry are hanging enjoying the pond, along with the ducks. Word on the street is that there are two herons but I've only seen one at a time. So, it's Harry. Because it is. And one egret. (Though a Ditch Walker said she had seen two of those as well.) So, we're talking Ellie!
Half these photos were taken with my old camera (all the flight ones and the ones where the birds are in the trees).
The rest with the new one. I'm loving it!
I was lucky enough to catch two fawns on the run...
...and Harry was lucky enough to catch something, too!
I had heard about both the birds hanging out in the trees but had yet to see them...
...until this day. Ellie was way up there.
Harry, a little lower and well camouflaged (which may be why I didn't see him before!)
But when they fly, it's glorious!
I was lucky enough to catch both of them on the wing. Harry's wingspan seems enormous.
But Ellie makes such a dramatic exit with her white reflected on the water.
I could watch all day. It was like seeing an angel fly.
For a bit of time I was joined by Dorothy Duck.
Loved her feather detail!
But time to move on and leave this lovely spot behind.
At least for a little bit! (By the way, if you really want to see fascinating bird photos, learn about banding and more, visit David at Travels with Birds. Some of the photography he posts takes my breath away, it's so dazzling!)

It feels so good to start bringing out the Easter things! And not surprisingly, bunnies and Easter eggs play big roles. And of course there...

When you live in the north and the colors you see for several months of the year are white, gray and dark branches against an often gray-whi...
