    Nature always relieve our stress from life, doesn't it?

    This year I could see some swallows. flying around.
    But really SAD that they fly so fast and didn't stay even a few second.
    I really appreciate your sweet comments and Have a wonderful weekend.

  16. Great series of images, Eileen. I am not quite sure how long ago these pictures were taken but I was surprised that the Common Loon was still in non breeding plumage. Our northern lakes are now well populated with loons and their cry is surely one of the signature sounds of the wilderness - well, what we still call wilderness although it is hardly that anymore. Have a great weekend.
