… and today was one of those days … we were on Lake Pleasant about 7A and off in search of … and during the five plus hours we spent on the lake many species presented them selves to us and the shooting was incredible. A Red Wing Blackbird spent time and played with us for a while too not to mention the Snowy Egrets, Great Egrets, Great Blue Herons, Bald Eagles and so many more …
The shot above is a juvenile Bald Eagle just after he left a perch on a tree trunk that rose above the water and below a Great Egret who had been perched in the crown of a flowering tree partially submerged in the lake. The water level is still going up and where I got the photos of the Coyote getting a large fish from the water is now under six feet of water … probably a few more feet to add before they begin pumping the water out in June.
Have a beautiful day … work on photos and gem cutting tomorrow … Smile and let the beauty of the day fill you with joy.
I drink deep the joy of dawn and peace abides with me;
And though I know that I again shall see
Dark fear with withered hand approach my sleep,
More sure am I when lonely night shall flee,
At dawn shall bring good cheer to me.
