One more walk at the park

We sure enjoyed being so close to Fletcher Park while we were in NC.

The trails are beautiful and nature abounds.

The last time we went, we saw this Great Egret on the pond.

We had some bread for the ducks and it came right over.

I love how close you got to the egret...and I'm insanely jealous. ;))

Very pretty! We have egrets here on the Tennessee River. A blue heron shows up every now and then that a friend of mine has captured on film on her walks on the trail by the river.

Love your walks and the egret is beautiful. Have you seen the bird special on PBS lately? They have cameras mounted on the birds and it's amazing to watch them and their migrations.

Anastasia Fedorova said...

Wow! You were so lucky to meet that bird and take pictures! That's so cool!:)

Stacey said...

That's one spoiled egret! Here they leave as soon as you go their direction.

Pamela Gordon said...

It's a beautiful park. Lovely to get out and enjoy nature too.

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

I'm surprised an egret would eat bread but maybe it's goes good with fish?
I see you're back in Florida - I'm looking forward to February down there again to get away from our cold winter and snow.

Red Rose Alley said...

The Egret is such a peculiar looking bird, but so beautiful. You were able to get some nice pictures of it on your walk. Oh Diane, it's always so nice to come along with you on one of your hikes.

It's good to hear that you remember the song "Downtown."

love,
~Sheri

You always capture the most amazing pictures Diane! I've taken a glimpse of some of your more recent posts and can't believe your good fortune with these creatures!mits almost as if they wait for you to strut their stuff :).

Regarding spam, I have a couple of suggestions if I may: one option would be to turn off comments on posts older than 30 days (or you decide the amount of time). I found most of my spam was on older posts. I use to get about 200-300 a day, now I get about 2! Another option is comment moderation, and yet another is Askimet. It really works great, although if you're on blogger can I assume you can't do plug ins? I seem to recall reading that once.

Something else I've seen on some blogs is a box a commenter has to check,rather than captcha which as you know can sometimes be hard to read.
