We went downtown today to look at the birds on Lake Morton and get some pix.
Here's an egret. These birds make us think of Edward Gorey sometimes.
I like this shot of a seagull in flight.
Don't know what this is - it's backlit so you can't see the interesting patterns on its back. It's some kind of fisher.
There were lots of seagulls.
As always, swans.
Some kind of blossoming tree - the leaves look mimosa-like but the blossoms don't.
This is definitely some kind of mimosa but it's different from the ones back home - the leaves are bigger and the blossoms are deep fuschia.
Roses - they look more like wild roses than cultivated but they smell really wonderful.
