Lakeside Sunrise

Hello,

We try to have a daily routine a walk and a workout at the community's fitness room. On this day we were up early to see the sunrise over our lake.

On one of the neighbors pier, a Great Blue Heron, maybe two Snowy Egrets and a Great Egret.


Sunrise over our lake and a Great Blue Heron on the boat house.


A Palm Warbler on the fence.


Neighborhood Sandhill Cranes

  16. Amazing photos of the those gorgeous cranes. My husband is out in Easter Colorado deer hunting along the river. He texted yesterday that the Sand Hills fell over. That's about as close to them as we get--a fly over. Love the sunrise over the water, so beautiful.

  36. Lovely photos. Eileen!

    The heron is majestic. We have one that "owns" our pond. :)

    He had visitors recently, what I thought were white herons, but turned out to be egrets. Beautiful! They didn't stay long.
