Recently, we laid a few blocks down in the backyard so that I [we] could use our old bench. My goal was to be able to watch some of the numerous birds that stop or fly by. Needless to say, the bench needs a little TLC [tender love and care] This was taken May 14th.
I grabbed my camera and took a few photos, thinking I’d start a new series called: Backyard Birdwatching. Real original, right?
Had to wait for him to get in the clear.
I took a few photos and then the next day, decided that plan may be put on hold for awhile. Why? Hang on.
On the 16th, I was able to capture three different species through our door. We were having breakfast when they all appeared. A Great Blue Heron and Great Egret by the water’s edge and the two pesky Sandhill Cranes.
Why was I shooting through the door instead of from my bench? Well, this dude showed up the 15th.
This Alligator is at the end of our yard. Because of the incline by the bank, we don’t get to see him often. So, I went to my neighbor’s yard and took this. She was with me, so if I had to waddle away fast, she could help me. Our neighbor, from across the water, told us that he comes and has layed on our bank at about 6 or 7 every morning for that last few days. Yikes!!
Needless to say, I have not been using my bench, yet!!
“Of the birds after their kind, of animals after their kind, and of every creeping thing of the earth after its kind, two of every kind will come to you to keep them alive.” (Genesis 6:20 NKJV)
We know that at least two of each kind of birds and creeping things were kept alive in the ark. I wonder if the alligators were on board, or swimming? Never thought about that before. Have you?
More later. We had a great view of this gator and the two Sandhill cranes today. Stay turned!
