Nature Walks – Cormorants and Egrets

I just love walking around through “our backyard”.  You just never know who you are going to run into.  Everyday is different and everyday is full of surprise and wonder.  The other day, while out on our “walk-about”, we saw so many familiar faces and friends.  They were all out enjoying the first day of summer.  Nature Walks – The First Day of Summer

Usually I only see one cormorant, but this time, there were two.  They were even on the same lake, although they were definitely social distancing themselves from each other.

Which is my best side?  To the left?

Or to the right?

Or looking straight at you?

We also saw a few egrets.  Sometimes they like to socialize with each other and sometimes they prefer their solitude.

It’s a bad hair day and something has ruffled my feathers.

OK.  I’ve regained my composure.  Now I can walk on water again.

    1. AWWWWWW!!!!! Thank you Rory. It is super easy to fall behind, especially when we get 1000’s of emails per day. I’ve already gone through about 800 today, and went off to do some work, only to come back to an additional 350. The price of fame and popularity. 🙂 🙂 🙂
