Jake has asked us this week to do a peaceful post. I hope that you find that most of my posts are peaceful, with the possible exception of the jackhammering and the parasailing, ones. 🙂
Today, whilst hubby was busy again in the kitchen, building cupboards, not cooking, I took a walk outside to see what was going in in our peaceful neck of the woods.
The only sound was of the wind gently rustling the palm fronds, and not a single person was to be seen. The only inhabitants of the lakeside, were the birds. The Great Blue Heron seems to be the kingpin around here, and he stood meditating by the water’s edge for quite a while,
before marching off to see what was potting a bit further down.
His friend, the Anhinga was busy drying his wings, and didn’t want to chat to anyone.
and the duck family were practising their swimming, up near the golf course,
under the watchful eye of mom and dad.
The Wood Stork was umm…… just stalking around, 🙂
and then there was a bit of action, closely watched by the Ibis.
Mr. Great Blue decided to go over to the other side of the lake, and catch himself some breakfast too.
Yummy sushi is his favourite dish.
The most peaceful creature of all though, was Lizzie lizard, who just sat motionless, waiting for her breakfast insects to venture near.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my peaceful morning in my back yard. To see more takes on Jake’s theme, as well as his own amazing images, just click here.
