Recently, Doug and I and our friend, Pat, spent an afternoon at a nearby state park, just enjoying the spring weather and some good books. Pat had eaten an apple and tossed the core to the water's edge. Immediately, from across the lake, two Canada geese headed our way. Apparently, they had seen the apple core hit the water and they were coming to investigate.
The first goose on the scene plucked the apple core from the water.
The arrival of the second goose
On another day, as I was walking at the reservoir, I captured a short (and shaky) video of a meadowlark. The quality isn't good because I had to zoom pretty far, but it was the best I could do.
Then, on another trip to the state park this week, a beautiful bluebird landed on a nearby tree and posed for us.
And, finally, here are a couple of pictures of the azalea bush in our front yard.
