This week we’re searching for Starts with G, Candy, and Latch
Starts with G: Great Egret
Found this one at Lake Lawson Lake Smith Park
Armed with only a cell phone camera today, I saw this Great Egret (below) at its usual dinner post near Hobby Lobby. (Shot through dirty windshield).
Food photography is not my forte.
Picked up my laptop Wednesday, hope to get back to “normal” blogging soon.
This week, looking for Starts with F, New, and Self (portrait)
Starts with F: Flower
New–Great Blue Heron showing off the newly built dock
As if I could be any more absent from the blogging world–my laptop has an appointment with the Apple doctor this evening. Not sure how long I’ll be without it; plus, I will be spending a few days with our daughter and family. Hold down the fort, I’ll be back soon!
Great Blue Heron/Norfolk Botanical Garden
This is my favorite season–hiking season! I practically had all this beauty to myself. It was a peaceful journey–until something stirred up the Crows and Blue Jays. Traveled light, photos taken with iPhone 6 Plus.
You never know who you’ll meet along the way.
Woodland Box turtle
Sorry–poor quality photo of Red-spotted Purple butterfly. I don’t see these often, but I love the color variations.

This week we’re looking for Starts with E, Drop(s), and Happy.
Ears–Starts with E
The bunny makes another appearance this week. Sorry, I can’t get enough of this cute face.
Raindrops keep falling on my head 🎶
Northern Cardinal with no head feathers.
One of my happy places at Norfolk Botanical Garden.
I went out to work in the garden recently, but my helpers got there first. I did clean up one end of the bed, then thought I’d reclaim the yarrow that had gotten lost in a sea of wildflowers. I ran into the helper at the bottom the page (SPIDER ALERT).
So, I moved to the other end of the bed–and found a Praying Mantis busily tending that section. I went for my iPhone, snapped their pictures, and called it a day.
In other backyard news, as I waited to pull out of the driveway today, I saw something in the road–as in something that had gotten run over. It was our wee opossum.
I drove to Lake Lawson Lake Smith park to walk, and found the gate closed. They’ve been doing some upgrades, and it should be open tomorrow. Since I was out, wearing shoes and camera in tow, I thought I’d go to the botanical garden to walk. Upon checking the down-sized wallet, the card wasn’t with me. So, here I am at home, and will soon spend some time with the treadmill. I hope you have a lovely evening!
Yellow Garden Spider
This week we are looking for Starts with D, Favorite, and Photographer’s Choice

There she is with that camera again.
