Puddle Jumpers

The drought is affecting everyone and every creature- these birds were walking in a shallow slough that usually is more pond-like than puddly.  I thought duck, but I searched google and bird sites and the sharp beak is a big hmmm.  So, if anyone knows, leave the name in comments, please. (Thank you Anni for the name: Common Gallinule) I hope everyone is enjoying the cooler weather. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate each and every one of you- please  leave a comment to let me know you were here- even a simple smily face if you don't feel like typing! 

Thankful today for renewed peace in my heart, for all the helpers in the world who run towards danger instead of away from it, for cat purrs and nose bops from my Katie, and for my grands who rule my world, and for my husband who is my sanctuary. 

Down by the Lazy River

Blue taking a swim

To slide or not to slide

Mine, mine, mine

Woodpecker in the shadows

Ooops, Swallowtail- I was wrong!  


Great Blue Heron
then he dropped his wings like they do when they are hot...but it wasn't hot,
and he had just went for a swim. 
Hit full screen to see him closer.
