My Walking Iris

A few months ago I decided to spiff up the place with some plants. I bought one or two, and just scooped up a couple of Walking Iris that someone had tossed on the sidewalk behind the art gallery.  Not sure where they came from, but I took them home and stuck them in some dirt.

Yesterday, my rescue efforts were rewarded … with THIS!

A Banner Day!

They’re back!  I spotted my first Osprey couple of the season, about a month before they normally show up, which is probably due to the abnormally warm weather.

But this shot was totally unplanned. I was watching them. They’d been gathering nesting materials. And then … photobombed by a Great Blue Heron!

This is not the kind of shot you could ever predict or hope to catch. But here it is.
