It is time to share a few more pictures of our recent activities.
The weather is rainy and cold,so therefore not great for birding and photography.
Having said all that here are a few of my recent pictures.
On Sunday,late afternoon,Jake and I went to Lake Minniwasta.
This is a relatively small lake,but it supplies the town of Morden with most of its water.
Upon our arrival,we saw one Osprey sitting on a tree close to the lake shore.
Before we left we had seen 7 Osprey,which is most unusual for this area.
Here is one of them in flight.
Yesterday,May 3,we again went to check on bird activity at the lake.
This time we were surprised to find several pair of Grebes.
These are two of the 5 Western Grebes present.
These are the birds that in courtship will do a water dance,running side by side on the water.
The other Grebes were these Horned Grebes.
This picture is not cropped,so you can see they were very close.
Today the lake was very quiet,but that does not keep me from taking pictures.
These Saskatoon Berry blossoms looked good to me.
To see the true beauty of the world around us,one has to train the eyes as well as the heart to stop and look at each little thing.
I hope you have enjoyed joining Jake and me as we walk along the trails at Lake Minniwasta.We will be back there many times before the summer is over,and you are welcome to join us,at least via this blog.
