If I am at home, I will visit the Ditch. And if I visit the Ditch, I will probably encounter my Big Bird buddy, Harry the Heron.
He was in a particularly lovely setting in one of the most recent visits.
Generally, I find him in the center of the largest pond. This time he was in one of the smaller ones, and quite close.
I have such trouble painting greens and getting them right, but I might have to try this!
In due course, he took off. The next series of photos are in flight, which always fascinates me. Their wingspan is enormous!
He wasn't the only bird at the ditch! There was this handsome robin...
...and a lovely red-winged blackbird.
The duck families are getting much larger, but still seem to hang in a group.
Of course, the wildflowers are beginning to pop!
And the water lilies are beginning to burst open!
Back on the home front, I was lucky to see a Mama (?) Robin and her youngster, Junior.
They became separated and somehow, Junior ended up in the neighbor's back yard.
I hope they reconnected.
