Walk to the lake

I am adding Weekend Reflections  to this post. Check out the reflections of the trees around my lake photo. And if you click on my Goldie Girl swimming, there is a cute reflection of her face and nose. Thanks to James for hosting Weekend Reflections.


For Watery Wednesday, Outdoor Wednesday and Nature Notes I am posting some of my photos from our walk to the lake near our house.

The ovenbird looks very similar to a stripe-throated bubbul that I have seen recently.

Very charming.

You saw nice things during your walk. Even though it is a place that you might walk to regularly, don't you always find something to photograph. I do, when I go for walks in my neighborhood or at one of our local parks.

AL said...

Hi Eileen, I haven't heard nor see an ovenbird before. Did I read it right?

Your golden girl made me smile.

Judy said...

Good Morning Sweetie...
What beautiful photos you have shared today. I so enjoyed peering through the woods at the beautiful ovenbird. I have never seen one before.

Goldie Girl is beautiful and swims like a champ. I know you have fun with her. The water looks so inviting. As hot as it has been here in the valley I would so enjoy jumping in myself.

Wild flowers are beautiful. Such a vibrant yellow. I love looking down the road in the fireroad photo it is beautiful.

Gorgeous share today. Have a wonderful day. Country hugs sweetie and much love, Sherry

Beautiful scenery - the water, the moon. I'd be doing what your dog is doing if I could... lovely yellow wildflower.

Looks like it was a beautiful day for a walk. Love the shot of your dog. Have a blessed week. Debbie

Ann said...

what a great find, the Oven bird.
I marvel the way you find these tiny birds and they don't fly away.

I saw some Silver eyes, but they flew before I got nearer.

EG Wow said...

Yes, I DID enjoy the walk! Thank you, Eileen. :)

Elaine said...

What a beautiful walk!

A piece of news said...

I enjoyed it and the photo of the lake is so lifelike! And an ovenbird? I have never heard of such a bird!

Martha Z said...

Thanks for bringing us on your walk, I needed that.
Your Goldie is beautiful. I had a golden/setter mix once. Her pesonality was all setter and she wouldn't retrieve. Let her spot some quail, though, and she would stand at a perfect point and then flush. If she could, she would have taken to the air after them. I miss that dog.

Luckaa said...

Eileen. Lovely pictures, Maryland is such a pretty state, I lived there in 70-71 (Army wife) and loved it.
Thank you for stopping by my Wy blog. I am so excited to have some landscaping, it makes it feel a bit more like a home.

Kate said...

Hi, Eileen;
Lovely photos. Looks like a cool, refreshing place to spend an afternoon. I'm sure my Bad Dog would be just as ecstatic as your Goldie about playing in the water.

The shot of Goldie Girl is wonderful. I love the rippling water behind her and the glassy surface in front - nicely done.
