It’s the morning of Independence Day, 2015. The sun is up and the wind is calm. Great time to put the kayaks in the water. I’ve got lots of pictures to share.
This was the first of the white water lilies that I have seen this year.
I found a bird that I didn’t recognize. Some time with “Birds of Michigan” by Stan Tekiela has me thinking this is a juvenile green heron. Yes, I know it’s blue, but the juveniles are a blue-grey. All other characteristics match.
It really does have a neck.
Of course, there were turtles out sunning themselves.
The loon was dancing on the water.
Then, it dove under water and re-surfaced about 20 feet away from the kayak.
And, in keeping the holiday, a bald eagle flew into a tree and posed for me.
So, with that, I wish everyone a Happy 4th of July, Independence Day.
