The first montage is of nature shots I took in my yard and neighborhood over the past six days. The brown thrasher was calling for a mate in my tree. The bottom right shot of flower petals on the ground almost look like snow to me.
The second montage is of a walk at Fallon Park this Saturday which is in the neighborhood where I grew up. The field of buttercups reminded me of my childhood when we would make long necklaces in this park with the buttercups. From what was left on the picnic table I'm guessing some children picked more than they needed for necklaces. I rarely go to this park because there are so many parks near where I live now but whenever I visit someone or have an errand in that part of town I like to check out the old neighborhood park.
The last montage is from a walk at Shelley Lake, which is in the subdivision where I've lived for the past 30 years, that Bill and I went on today (Sunday). I would have missed the deer if a helpful man hadn't told me where they were. Sometimes people see my camera around my neck and will tell me about various things. Once someone told me where to look for a juvenile bald eagle and people often mention where the herons are. The cormorant in the shot above the deer stayed in that posture for a long time. The top left shot in the group below is of an area of wetlands and generally has a lot of water but it looks like it was dredged for some reason I can't guess. A lot of water birds nest near that area and I hope the dredging didn't upset them.
