Back on the Lake!

Its been too long.  I’m sorry to have been away so long.  But, it is finally spring at the lake.  These were taken two weeks ago, Mother’s Day weekend.  I hope these are the beginning of a great summer at the lake.

Its kind of a photo-dump, but here ya go.

Lots of ducks on the lake.  This one was suddenly in a hurry to get across the lake.

Swans and I haven’t always gotten along (long story), but this one and its mate gave me wide berth.

I chased this spotted sandpiper down the lake shore until it landed here.

There were lots of turtles.  I think there are 15 turtles in a couple of these photos.  How many can you count?

This was one of the two eagles we saw that morning.  A mature eagle soared overhead and this young one watched us from a tree.

Spring is here!
