Junior, Dragons & Plants.. oh my!

I got a decent photo of "Jr" (the moorhen they have chased away from the family (because he is a maturing male) So I thought I would post it.

When I feed the others I usually spot him quite a way up the pond so I save some bread and go for a short walk to feed him.. he comes right up to me. After he eats his fill he always takes a piece of bread and tries to go and feed the babies, only to get Mama's wrath!  (his beak is turning nicely.. soon it will be a red/orange color)

The below shot shows his tremendously big feet under the water.

I haven't seen that *gold* dragonfly since I lucked in with that one photo.. all the others have this bluest body...

.... with really funky eyes! lol

 I am giving a try to a small potted English Ivy. (It brings out the British part of me :o)  )...

Outside when I look up neighbor has this beautiful  Mandevilla climbing plant...

... and of course I keep a close eye on her tomatoes!  I mean, if one should turn red and fall... I'd want to be there to catch it! heh.

LOL...poor Junior! He's so adorable. I'm glad that he's getting some lovin' from you at least ;) I love that Mandevilla! I tried to get my mom to buy one, but she said no :p Your ivy is really nice too! It is very British looking ;)
