Monarch Butterflies

A few years ago, I was painting at Lake Jean and the Monarchs were clumping over my head! In good years, you can see dozens and dozens in a clump. It's such an amazing site! This was 2006.





Ok, I have to add one kitty photo!  Stella has her usual pillow, Clothilde.

Egrets at Lake Jean!

Egrets at Lake Jean! I've never seen so many. I'm not sure if they are still there today, I can't see them from the house, and haven't walked down there yet.

Duck photos!!! We have chickens too, they sent the chickens to help keep the ducks warm. Hmmm, I figured 100 degrees was warm enough!

Blue Quail with babies!

Here are the quail and the little ones!

These are Blue Quail.  When the birds are very young, they look like little walnuts on a short tooth pick!  I was so glad to get this shot, they came on the patio earlier than yesterday.
