A Closer Look
Bougainvillea plant ...From a friends deck garden. The actual flower of the plant is small and generally white, but each cluster of three flowers is surrounded by three or six bracts with the bright colors associated with the plant, including pink, magenta, purple, red, orange, white, or yellow.
Lady in Red
Looks like these little ones did not quite get the directions clear that mom gave them.

A Real Attention Grabber
This plant was in full bloom last time I was at the Arb. I love their little conservatory.
Catch a Fishy by the Tail
This was the first time in a long time I was able to get fairly close to a green heron at Sherburne. He was too hungry to care.
Goose Fight Subject
This is who the geese were fighting over ...
Good Riddance! Goose Fight Two
And stay away!
These two were not messing around in this fight. They had each other by the throat. One got too close to some newly hatched little ones.
Coming in to Roost
A Great White Egret in late evening light.
It is really great to see the wide range of shots and subjects on CM. I have been admiring them for a couple years. I have been enjoying photography and nature for many years. My latest passion is wildlife. I also like to shoot flowers, barns, old structures and anything else that trips my shutter! I have met people from CM out in the field and a couple on line also and really have enjoyed that!
