Birds of the Day, and more

 
Today, I was out doing assignments all day. Just some random finds for the day.

I loved these sleepy female mallards.

This field of Joe-pye weed and goldenrod was just shining in the late sun. I almost missed it, but turned around to snap some photos.

Finally, an extremely rare find in our climate. The nesting flamingo.

I'm too tired to be funny. Off to bed for me.

You live up to the name of your blog. You do find the good stuff--even in the tough days. A lesson for all of us.

Whenever I see goldenrod I know summer is beginning to end.
Loved your last pic!

Elizabeth- thanks for stopping by. The field was just glowing!
