Early Morn' Once More.

It's Always in the wee early morn'  before the fountain goes on that one can see the reflections in the pond so well...

..and even one of the water plants had given off a few flowers..

The pond has been so quiet (too quiet) that I even caught the Egret taking a morning bath!

"Big Foot" and his brother came by..

Not much longer will this family stay together..soon the parents will chase the babies to the other side of the pond.

And the turtle found his way to get some bread..

You can always tell how hungry he is by "if" he comes out of the water to get even more bread~!

Off in the distance my tri color Heron...

Yes another surprise... and still "across the pond" I saw turtles but didn't know one was the softshell turtle.. and one of the Moorhens was investigating..

note the flat soft shell and the very webbed feet.

This is one of my favorite sets of pond photos yet! Especially love the top three...they make such a lovely and varied collection. How do you get any reading done anyway?!! I think I would just be forever entranced with watching the world outside.

Debi: I have one planned with no animals.. just "the pond itself"..its very quiet around the pond lately seems like most of the "wildlife" up and went away!

LOL..the softshell turtle looks like he's screaming with his hands up in the air for the little moorhen to leave him alone :p I was actually awake this morning when you took these pics! I was up before the sun unfortunately because of work. But now I'm back to nights thank God. Great pics as always :)

These are great pictures! I really enjoy looking at them. Since most wildlife of this nature has started to go south for the winter I can only see them in your pictures!

Lovely, lovely photos. My favorites were those of the egret. I live in the tropics so I don't see this kind of bird. I would love to see it in its own habitat.

I can see why that moorhen was investigating that soft shell turtle. It probably wondered whay it was doing with duck feet LOL. Helen
