Eliza had asked to see some photographs of my regular walk around our containment pond, so without further ado… We often see all the varieties of heron fishing together. There are little snowy egrets, little green heron, night heron, Great Egrets and Great Blue Heron.
I love Robins – British Robins are small and vividly red like our Cardinals. The American Robins have such lovely songs and their coloring is so pretty.
She is a native of Mexico – beloved by butterflies and hummingbirds
I love this tree sized pink Hibiscus bush which is on one of our shared neighborhood flower beds. We live in a posh commune…
I opened my front door and Vladimiri was standing right in front of me, drinking the water from one the neighbor’s sprinklers. I chatted to her and admired her juvenile who flew away but she was not bothered by my presence. Unlike the next wonderful creature.
I am not entirely sure if this is the venomous Water Moccasin or a Diamond Back Water snake. Teddy was shouting, “Don’t get too close!”, to no avail as I was determined to get a shot of the snake swimming. It was so EXCITING!!
This is the American blackbird – not dissimilar to the European version but with a gorgeous flash of scarlet on the wings.
Whistling Ducks are not really true ducks, nor geese – they are a sub family Dendrocygninae. Some Whistling Ducks, further south than us, nest in trees to keep the eggs safe from alligators. I think we will have many babies soon…
The local Bluebird Group have little houses all over our township and this year we have TWO pairs of Bluebirds of Happiness.
