Nature Walks – The First Day of Summer

It is a beautiful day out in the neighborhood. It is warm, but not too terribly hot.  We saw so many beautiful things today.  All the flowers were in bloom.  We saw turtles, herons, egrets, the goslings that are almost all grown up now, cormorants, prairie dogs, and yes, even another large snake.  Larry asked if I wanted a picture of the snake, and I said nope.  The one I have is more than enough, thank you, and I did not even take that picture.  I had to google it.

All the cacti were in bloom too.


The goslings are almost as big as their parents now, and have lost all of their baby feathers.  They grow up so quickly.


He’s walking on water.


What’s your sign?


Just looking around.


Stranded on the island in the lake.


Hangin’ out on the rock.


Is this my best side?


Even though there were two herons that flew right over me, I could not get them.  This is the best shot I could get of the heron today.


Daddy, I’m hot.  I’m thirsty.  Can I have some water please?


I took a lot of pictures today.  There are plenty more to come your way.

Stay safe and stay well Everyone.  ‘Til next time.
