My oldest daughter was running a bit late this morning and, by the time I dropped her off at school, I only had a limited amount of time to go for my walk. I did, however, manage to get a short walk in by the shoreline this morning and, even though I debated even bringing my camera with me, was able to get a few photos as well. Here is a selection of those photos:
It was raining a good chunk of the day yesterday and, other than a 5-minute stroll, without my camera (I didn't want to get it wet), early in the morning, I didn't get any walks in yesterday.
It's much nicer today and I was able to make up for yesterday by going for a walk along the lake shore before coming into the office this morning. In addition to the usual subjects (herons, pelicans, etc), I was fortunate enough to get a photo of a muskrat as it swam in the lake toward me. It got pretty close before it realized I was standing there and went under the water.
After having cloudy weather most of the past few days, it was great to go for a walk at lunch and have the sun be out. And, the best part was there was a slight breeze so it didn't get too hot walking.
I saw quite a few signs of life today too. This included a couple snakes, including one that was very cooperative and stopped long enough for me to get a photo.
Here are some of the photos I took:
