One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in His temple. (Psalm 27:4)
Yesterday, I got up early so that I could walk at the reservoir before getting ready for church. It was a little hazy with the early-morning humidity when I first arrived.
I saw this meadowlark and snapped the shot. I was going to crop it to focus on the meadowlark itself but decided that the cropped image wasn't as eye-pleasing as the original.
These bushes, which I think are honeysuckle, line the entire path around the reservoir. I've never seen them in bloom like this and figure it must be due to the lateness of our spring this year. Their blooming period is probably normally over by the time the reservoir opens for the season.
I took this photo because I liked the color of the leaves and the overall simplicity of the plant. I didn't notice the spider web or it's occupant until I put the image on the computer. (See the lower right-hand corner for a glimpse of the banana spider in the web.)
Dandelions may make our lawn-care tasks harder, but they make interesting photo subjects.
Here again, I was just photographing a pretty flower and didn't notice the fly on it until I downloaded the image to the computer.
Just in case you wanted a closer look at the fly.
This Coot seems to have stayed on with the three disabled geese after the other Coots moved on. Doug thinks it's because he is mooching some of the grain that is fed to the geese.
These two were either just starting their walk as I finished mine, or they may have been returning to their favorite fishing spot after a visit to the restroom. Either way, I couldn't resist snapping their picture. You can see one of the flowering honeysuckle bushes in the background. And notice the pink boots on the little girl. They make her feet look happy.
