Default Summertime…

A few summertime shots from here at the home park…

Whoever Susan was, she must have had lovely eyes! Black-Eyed Susan is one of our most common and photogenic summertime flowers of the sunny fields.

Butterfly weed is probably our prettiest native milkweed species.

Cormorants may not be pretty, but they do show off for the camera!

So do Eastern Kingbirds - they sing, and chase other birds, and chase flying insects, and even clean their feathers out in public!

On the other hand, our Black Crowned Night Herons seem to get shier all the time. This one only allowed two quick early morning shots before he was gone!

Early morning is also the best time to photograph the abundant summer spiderwebs - so much easier to see when they are gemmed by dew and fog.

Hope these quick snapshots will tempt you to take a summertime stroll! Thanks in advance for any comments & critique.
