Thursday is my late day to work. I hadn’t been feeling good, but I wanted to go for a slow walk to try to get back into the groove. When I got to the lake, I saw not just the great blue heron, but a great white heron, both on the wall. I decided it would be a good day to substitute a photo shoot for my usual walk. I went back for my camera.
The great white heron didn’t tolerate my snapping for long:
And soon he was so good as to pose by the rainbow in the fountains on a sunny day.
I love the way the wildflowers blooming by the lake change every week. This is one of my favorites, because it reminds me of a flower we had in Gundersweiler, Germany.
I love the bunnies I see every day on my walk. It’s getting where they aren’t scared of me, which feels a little pathetic.
And more flowers and lake.
Next, it posed by the gazebo.
I love the way the great white heron and its reflection shine in the sunshine.
I should mention that the weather was also fabulous. Bright and sunny, but cool and breezy. Even though I wasn’t feeling good, that time at the lake started off a great day.
