Fishing was nothing with a huge snapper turtle out there. ( I should know, my pretty little brass hook ended up as a straight pin) 12 Canada Geese in the shallows swam around in our cove area. 2 scissor-tails chasing a crow across the sky. 13 Rough-wing swallows were out but protesters tonight,with one lonely Tree swallow following behind. The waves reached up to touch the underbelly of a low flying Great Blue Heron. My guess the turtle ruined his fishing too. The critter of a hummingbird as it flew by my head. No idea what it was. A kingfisher landed nearby his crest and white markings shine so brightly in the lower sunlight. Star loves the mid between her toes as she went deeper out to snatch my cork with delight. (lucky the hook didn't get her as I scorned her big time.) Silver likes a rocky footing so I went by the ramp to fish a bit in the shade. Now both kids are happily up to their bellies in the cool water. Crows still talking one by one.
Our trip out got us a slow flying down the lane Cooper's Hawk not in a hurry either we matched his speed. Till he put on a spurt of gas and flew in front of us crossing the street. At home we were met by a Carolina Wren in our screened porch. Dogs were delighted. Bird was not. Getting the dogs inward got it outward in relief. The delight at the lake and I got my phone out to take the shot. Was this pink and white dragon float being towed by big brother we assume? In his little raft as he towed his two tiny sisters to the other side where the swimming beach was. Not a bird but that was a laughing sight to see! Makes me to want a dragon too. Now we got two does put here with a Barred Owl pair talking away! Teresa , MT Ida, AR
