Rob and I set up all our annual flowers yesterday.
So after I took these photos it was off to the slough to get some pictures of our wildlife. Rob helped with these shots and got some wonderful results.
Male Red-winged Blackbird
Female Red-winged Blackbird
Female Canadian Goose sitting on nest. Some random duck keeping her company. Maybe nesting too??
Male Canadian Goose. This little guy works hard all day guarding the entire pond.
Sadly, we think this is a goose egg that has been stolen and eaten.
Red-Necked Grebes. Female is sitting on nest. These are the loudest creatures!! Lisa says they have a "Snookie cry". hee hee Lisa doesn't quite enjoy the sounds of nature as much as me and Rob. ;) It alsmost looks like the nest is floating but it is secured to vegetation just under the water surface.
This trio is known as Lesser Scaup. The males are the darker ones and the female is brown.
I can't leave without sharing a photo of "Gutsy Lady". She is totally enjoying this new outdoor world that I really don't think she ever knew existed. Susan has given me an embellishment that reads "Gutsy Lady" and I plan on doing a LO to document her social improvement.
I might scrap tonight unless my knitting calls me away. I am one and a half cloths away from finishing my project and then I am on to my red sampler.
Happy Scrapping!! Jen :)
