A Few Shots From Thursday

Thursday is my first day off from work.  When the weather’s nice I’ll grab the camera and head out.  Yesterday, I took my chair and headed for that spot by the lake.  It paid off with some nice eagle shots and several other shots worth sharing.

Male Baltimore Oriole.  It’s rained here bringing the water levels back to normal.  Shorebirds like sandpipers and killdeers have moved on and the small birds who hang out in the bushes and trees along the lake’s edge have taken their place, like the Baltimore Orioles, Red-winged Blackbirds and Common Grackles.

With the weather turning really nice and the water levels being higher, fishermen with their boats now move around on the lake, so when the boats began moving around I decided to call it a day and head back home.  Just before leaving I noticed something on the shoreline.  I thought it was someone fishing, but it turned out to be a Whitetail Deer down by the lake for a drink.  The deer intently looked at the noisy boat and decided to head back into the marsh and hide.  I decided to head home and eat.

    Truly…I’d rather spend a couple hours sitting here with the bugs and skeeters photographing than anything else.
