Lake Of The Lilies

The Swans are back at Lake of the Lilies and they were not camera shy when I visited!
In fact, it seemed to me like this one was posing for my pictures.






As I turned to leave...
this Swan turned it's head and flicked the water...

and decided to play hard to get...

I'm so happy they are back!

Saturday Critters ~ 283 ~

On a recent trip to Lake of the Lilies,

 I was very surprised to see a Lesser Yellowlegs.
This is an elegant wading bird with long, very bright orange-yellow legs.
It's bill is thin, long and straight.






I was also surprised to see the Least Sandpipers as well...

there were so many, you can see in this picture, just how tiny they were.





They moved a lot more and a lot quicker, they were very difficult to photograph.

I saw a lot of great wildlife today that I will share pictures of in the upcoming days!

Many thanks to David at Travels With Birds for helping me to identify these birds correctly!
