On August 5 Jake and I went to Winnipeg,to one of our favorite photo spots.
The English Gardens,almost always give us good photo opportunities,
and this day was no exception.
Of course we hoped to see at least some birds.
This Red-eyed Vireo stopped long enough to get a good shot.
We heard more birds than what we saw.
It seems they mostly wanted to hide in the foliage.
The flowers were spectacular.
I have to give credit to the gardeners,employed here.
They are busy reworking the gardens constantly.
Clusters of Goldenrod remind me that although the temperatures are high,fall is fast approaching.
The vibrant colors of these Snapdragons should be attracting the Butterflies and bees.
Unfortunately,I did not see much activity around these,
except for one photographer,who enjoyed the brilliance.
We noticed a few Cottontails around
This one had chewed all of the leaves from the Lily plants in this area.
Here he is up on his hind legs,reaching for the last few tender leaves.
Thought for today:
Smiling lets the world know that there is hope.
