First, let me share a couple of links, first to the bird and blooms blog I posted this evening and second to a post that shares the love of nature:

Now, today was spent with Dawn, driving around (one of our favorite things to do) taking pictures, enjoying each other's company. I am not sure about Dawn, but I know that our biweekly jaunts tend to fulfill a desire nestled deep within, to make something in my life fun. Aw, I realize that being able to play on the computer, being able to spend time with family, sharing the photos and the funnies of our family and friends may be enough for a lot of people. But for me there needs to be a recharge point, something to plug into.
Today that something was going up to the reservoir (I know this spelling looks wrong, but its what the computer told me, so go figure!) to find birds. Unfortunately there was only one, and he wasn't remotely interested in us:
But is was a gorgeous day for our Wacky Wildlife Wednesday, and if that was all the wildlife we could find, it was worth the trip.
Here's a couple of more shots we took while hoping for a closer glimpse of our fine feathered buddy.
At some point I am going to hit the jackpot, I am going to stumble upon (I said it, too, Dawnee!) a flock of geese, or a kingfisher or a bald eagle soaring across the fields, but until then, I will use the days to recharge, learn to appreciate the gifts I have been given.
Thank you for stopping by.
