First, the wildlife......
At first glance, I thought this was the goose family I had already posted about. The goslings looked about the right amount older but on closer inspection this family has six babies versus the five in the last post. I loved how they aligned themselves in such a nice straight row as well as the water-patterned green reflections. Their formation made me think of a train.
|All aboard the Goose train! ....or......They've really got their ducks in a row!|
|We've gone past cute to that awkward tween phase!|
Next, some more turtles, socializing in the sun....

Two more Mallards....or is it four more?
And of course the Mallards got my eye looking for a way to get the boys in on a reflection shot. If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know I love reflections, like here, here, and here .
First Jimmy cooperated.....
And then Wilson tried the same pose....
|I like Wilson's better, he hadn't yet rippled the water....|
|This one reminds me of an Aesop fable .|
|A big Wilson smile|
And now, I am once again out of photos!
I compiled this post before I had learned of the terrible damage caused by a huge tornado in Moore, OK. It doesn't feel right to post pictures of my ordinary and routine life without at least acknowledging this tragedy. My thoughts are with the victims and their families.
