Teezel and the grape
I feel like a little kid blaming some one else for something.
No blame here.
I gave Anne the camera and had her take this photo out of the car window.
Slowly but steadily I'm getting her hooked.

Not a great shot, but with the light and speed of he bird it is as good as I could get.
We went back for two more visits and Tigger was still there.

Come a little bit closer you are my kind of man
By the way, NEVER try to pick up a snapping turtle from the front. When they are on land they feel vulnerable and the will bite. Believe me it hurts.
If you need to move one off a road, approach from the rear and pick it up by its shell, never its tail, just behind the rear legs. You can support the turtle and not get bitten.
Be careful, they can turn around quickly.

He was indifferent to us as he looked for food but didn't come out of the cat tails.

Last night a pair of Sandhill Cranes flew over, calling contunously to each other.
This was a first, we have sen them, and heard them but not at he same time. Amazing.
The day before we had six Sora Rails, a Green backed heron and a least bittern.
The day before that we saw thre least bitterns and a green heron along with all the other usual marsh birds, such as common yellow throat, swamp sparrow, marsh wren and various swallows.

The Dragon and the Lotus
This dragon was nice enough to pose, so I thought it was only polite to take his picture.

Humidity was very high and the moisture was acting as a filter, softening everything.
Once I load the photos onto the computer I realized that I may have had condensation on the lens.
Air conditioning to high humidity and temperature, not good for electronics.
Sometimes unplanned photos can be interesting.
