memorial day weekend

nice memorial day weekend. went out of town & our neighbors joined us. molly is a photographer, so she & i had a lot of fun going on photo safari while the other halves went fishing.

the marsh is beautiful. there is so much to photograph that it can become overwhelming.


i have lots of photos that i could share, but thought i would start with the small things that caught my attention.

i think that this is a yellow headed blackbird nest. note the willow stems that the nest is woven around.



skunk cabbage



love the reflection of the sky in the water and the movement around the reeds




and a little flora and fauna


and spent the afternoon going through the photos & posting to the blogs..... i could use another day off to get caught up, but that won't be happening! gypsy gallery thursday evening and art & roses sunday- it's going to be a busy week- need to print & frame some more photos & have a serious chat with the weather goddess since both shows are outside...send sunny thoughts our way for thursday evening & sunday!

Love the photo with the eggs. Are they as tiny as they seem, here?

That nest is like a basketweaver made it---how amazing when we see what birds are capable of!
Thanks for posting the pics....I have been a slug after a wasp sting and need to figure out tomorrows blog post. Yesterday was spent just waiting for the poison to run it's course...pfffft!
I'm back full bore today! :)
