Just Kicking Around...

What a fun day we enjoyed.  We jumped in the car Monday afternoon and took a ride out to Springfield Lake about 25 miles from our house.  The sun was shining and we were having a heat wave, it was up to 44 degrees so a perfect day for an adventure.  And look what we found...

There were all kinds of Canadian Geese.

There was a beautiful swan, but we did not see it's mate, that was kinda sad.

And out in the middle on a log were 5 pelicans, or they looked like pelicans.
Across the lake in the trees we could see an Eagle perched up in the tree. It is at the left bottom corner of that light colored roof.  I know it is so small you can barely see it.  That is why we decided we needed a closer look.

On our drive to the other side we saw 7 deer, they were so pretty.

It was amazing, we actually did not have any problems locating the eagle.  It was in a subdivision but we drove right to it.

Yes I would say it was a very successful day in the land of photography, nothing like enjoying God's creations!

"But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." Isaiah 40:31

until next time...nel
