Just a little guy. This 3-footer has been patrolling the pond behind the house for the past month or so. I guess the drought had him looking for water and he ended up here. For a size comparison the lily pads are a little more than a foot across.

A Blue Heron is eyeing the koi in my fish pond.

Yes, it's right there. A couple of days ago there was a duck about half way from the house to the pond. Just as I came out to have my morning coffee that gator was almost to the duck but when he saw me he hightailed it back to the pond. "That was one lucky duck"

Having a decent summer capturing local humming birds, here's a ruby throated female feeding on a bee balm flower in my wife's garden. I get better results using my Canon SX50 superzoom camera than I did in the past with my DSLR and a long lens. The camera allows continual shooting as long as the shutter is pressed. The bird feeds around the flower, and I just point and shoot away. I discard most of the photos as the bird is behind the flower or its wings are in its face. But sometimes it works out OK!

The first shot is Ibis at work.



This shot is Ibis during break.



After these guys get done picking through the lawn there shouldn't be a bug anywhere.
