Just another sunny day on the lake and the birds are plentiful! (Not terribly diverse, but lots of them!)
I love the seagulls. They're so crisp and white!
And they're always on the lookout for something!
This one was bigger than the others. I saw what I think was him pull a big fish out of the water. (That might have been the eagle -- he was pretty far away).
I've not seen the gray ones before and don't know if it's a male-female difference or just a different type of gull. Anyone?
They certainly know how to fly high!
Here's Mama Duck. Her number of ducks has varied throughout the summer. First, five. Then four. Now five. Another had more. So I'm wondering -- is this Mama 4-5 or is it Mama 7 (missing a few)?
(It could easily happen on the lake -- there's a Bald Eagle that I think nests in the neighbor's tree or at least flies that way. I either see him when I'm swimming or he's flying in too fast to grab my camera!)
A flotilla of Canada geese. I love seeing them on the water like this.
Less so on my beach. Fortunately, they seem to love the Treeless Loud Neighbor's beach best! (I know. That's very uncharitable.) I leave you with yet another sunset...
...and a few shots of a beautiful moon.
On nights like this I sit on my porch and am just so very grateful that I have the opportunity to enjoy all this in the quiet of the night.
Well, quiet once the Treeless Loud Neighbor's air conditioner goes off.
