Nature Walks – The Party Is At the First Lake

Walking around my beautiful and beloved lakes is always such a pleasure. I just never know what or “who” I am going to see, or even where for that matter. Usually, when I see things, everything is spread out over all the lakes, but this time, most of the action was taking place at the first lake. Everyone was there. There must have been some kind of party going on.

The pelicans were out for a swim.

They were even picking on a lone egret too. As you can see, they got his feathers all ruffled.

He gave them a piece of his mind and then soon calmed down and all was fine once again.

He only stayed a short while though, then decided to fly the coop.

There was a cormorant who kept trying to crash the party, but the pelicans weren’t including him in their pelican games, so he swam off on his own.

A goose family was out enjoying their day too,

as were a couple of wood ducks and mallards.

Even Mr. Turtle was out sunning himself on the logs. We have a few geriatric snapping turtles that are rumored to be over 100 years old. This just may one of them. He still looks really good, especially considering his age.

Even the squirrels had to get in on some of the fun.

As you can see, it was a fun party. I am glad I was on the invite list.
