Around the Pond & Boo
Boo.. in search of a lizard to watch.
one of the very hot evenings produced this "sunset" on the pond..
"Woody" the resident Wood Stork came back for a visit..
...he's still not "pretty"! But he does let me take good pictures of him.
I thought this was interesting... when Woody is feeding in the pond, what he does is: takes one step, then lifts and resets the foot down a few times to stir things up on the bottom... then he lifts one wing so he can block the sun from reflecting and he can see.. then he reaches in and gets his snack!
This last picture is blurry .. the baby Moorhen was close by and dashing about I thought I had it focused but then the camera focused on the plant it was under.. ah well.. but it does show something I wanted you to see!.. the unusual big feet the bird has! I've been trying to get a picture of Mama Moorhen on the paved path so you can see her green legs and big feet but so far I haven't had any luck.. eventually I'll get one!
