A Few Birds and a Sunset

When we go to Ouabache State Park, it's usually in the afternoon; and we leave about 5 PM or so to go get supper at our favorite restaurant. Last Friday, though, on the spur of the moment, we went to the park around mid-afternoon and took our supper with us to enjoy later.
 
Toward dusk, the birds became more active. We'd hardly seen any before that. So the following pictures aren't the greatest quality because of the low light and the amount of zoom required. Still, I thought they were worth sharing.

And this is the sunset that we saw on our way home that night.

To put it mildly, it was a very pleasant afternoon and evening.

  5. Gorgeous pictures! I especially like the hovering bluebird. Several young bluebirds splashed in my birdbath yesterday. Love them to pieces.

  12. I like the second bluebird, it's a cute photo, and the sunset is beautiful. Well and a little bit metaphorical, isn't it, telling the story of nature and/versus technology. :)
