Warning: If you don't like birds than this post will not interest you.
I will include more pictures than usual,in an attempt to catch up on some of the spring pictures I have.
The waterfowl pictures in this post are all taken at Lake Minniwasta,the lake just on the west side of my home town.You can see this was taken in early spring.There are still no leaves on the trees.That has all changed by now.
This is a Pied-billed Grebe,the smallest grebe we have here.
Anytime I get to see a Common Loon on our lake,is a special time for me.This was one of at least four that I saw on this day.He/she was so busy feeding that he didn't notice me.I also like the sparkles on the water.
Heading down for some more food.
Caught him just before he disappeared.
You all know I love driving down country roads,looking for photo opportunities. This Red-tailed Hawk was feeding on something and I was able to get just one good shot,but that was all I needed.
I saw a Western Meadowlark on a hydro pole,but of course he saw me as well and didn't hang around long. I caught this image just as his wings were tucked in.
I also got one with wings spread open. It is not perfectly sharp,but I still like it.
This is a bird that usually takes off the second the car begins to slow down. Surprisingly this American Kestrel sat long enough for me to get a picture.
I leave you with two pictures of our lake and the diamonds it sported that morning.
May you find some beauty in each day.
