Chasing Pigeons, and a Hungry Egret

I took a grandson on a walk this morning.

We came across a flock of pigeons.

Ben is saying, "Honk!  Honk!"

The birds kept returning, so Ben kept running.

I love the look of determination on his face.

Of course, now I'm thinking, "Can we try this again during the golden hour?"

On our way home, I spied an egret in the distance.  I carefully aimed my camera, perfectly framing the bird and his reflection, when he decided to grab a snack.

Owls in the Dark

As a grandmother, I frequently have opportunities to take pictures a little outside of nature.  These two owls were in a nocturnal exhibit at Cameron Park Zoo in Waco.

The Heron Felt Safe on Thanksgiving Day

A nature walk this morning brought me almost face to face with a heron.
Elegant and graceful, he was joyful to watch.

Turtle Haven

My husband and I are visiting grandkids for Thanksgiving.
During a Sunday afternoon walk, we came across a turtle hideout.
A nearby bridge provided the perfect overlook.
The day was chilly.  I had a jacket.  The turtles were catching the late afternoon sun to stay warm.

Temple Fountain

I haven't visited the Provo City Center Temple with my camera for quite some time.
I was stunned by the beauty of the fountain.
Although the temple was dedicated this past March, the fountain has been in operation for more than a year.
I don't have a favorite temple, but I do have a favorite fountain.

Fall Geranium

I was delighted to notice the late afternoon sun on my geraniums this afternoon, which are thriving.

Fall Sunset

I was reading a good book this evening.
Fortunately, I looked up at exactly the right time.
These colors came and went almost in the blink of an eye.
