It was a beautiful morning to be on the lake. After a few windy days, the lake was very calm.
We saw a trio of juvenile green herons this morning. We haven’t seen any green herons in a couple years. These were clearly young and without the mature coloration.
And, surprisingly, we saw a great blue heron as well. Not a great photo, but I did capture it in flight.
There were a few water lilies open this morning.
There were very few turtles sunning themselves this morning. I love the reflection of this one.
We saw our neighbors water skiing. You make it look so easy.
We followed a kingfisher along the shoreline. It finally lingered long enough for me to get a couple shots. The second photo was taken just as it took flight.
Although we heard a loon, we didn’t see one until we were just off our shore. Here are Mamma and Baby. Baby is growing.
Its a beautiful day to be on the lake. I hope you get to enjoy everything that nature presents.
