The Copilot...

It's so important in life to have a good copilot, you know what I mean?
In all aspects, you need a good copilot...in the hubs, I have that.

The other day the hubs and I were heading home from dinner.
As we passed Godfrey Lake he shouted out 
"I think that was a Heron"
and before I knew it, 
he was spinning the car around, headed back.
Upon closer inspection, it was indeed a 
Great Blue Heron

I snapped this image first, you know, just in case he flew off.

Getting a little closer, I snapped again,
I didn't want to go back to the car with nothing...
after such a great spotting from the copilot.

And just as I rounded the bend and the view opened up...I saw this.
I only clicked once or twice and it took flight...
but that was enough and I was so happy as I headed back to my copilot.

I was thinking perhaps he is the pilot, me the copilot, since he is the driver...
What's that saying...
"It doesn't matter where you go in life, it's who you have beside you"
Yep, that's us...pilot, copilot, it doesn't matter, just as long as we're together!

Saturday Critters ~ 128 ~

I finally got back to check on Momma Swan, 
whom I first found and photographed on April 16th.

I only saw one swan as we approached the lake,

and that one was in the water,

very busy preening, with Mr. Male Mallard.

I know exactly where the nest was, on an island at one end of this lake.
The nest that I saw back in April was completely open but it is now completely covered in overgrowth.
Yet, I was pretty sure I saw her in there, can you see her?

The hubs drove me around to the other side of the lake...

and sure enough, there she was!

I spent about 10 minutes watching and photographing her.
She spent most of the time tending to and fixing up her nest,
then she curled up and I assume drifted off to sleep.

Isn't nature amazing?
