Today’s blog finds us once again at Rocky Fork Lake. An amazing thing about “Our Wonderful World” is the random multitude of views to enjoy. From wild flowers to wild life, there’s so much to take in and enjoy.
With the vibrant shades of red, magenta, pink, yellow, and green…we are able to take a walk and be in the middle of a kaleidoscope of colors. Rocky Fork provided us with birds flying, fish jumping, flowers blooming, and Egrets, well, egreting…lol.
Two of my favorites in today’s photographic offering is the Egret leaning off the log in the water ready to strike, and the cluster of magenta blossoms with the Bumble Bee seeking a little nectar.
In the former, the Egret is just about to either make a kill strike from the log or he is about to lose his balance and fall off the log. And with my experience in watching these majestic birds, I’m doubting that he is about to fall. Speaking honestly, in the next picture, his head was under the water in a big splash grabbing a fish. Unfortunately, the picture developed too out of focus for use. That’s how it goes, sometimes you’re the Egret…sometimes you’re the fish.
Monica took the flower picture with the Bumble Bee, and a terrific shot it is indeed. It’s always a pleasure to see the different layers of nature together in one scene, and how they are working together to survive. It’s the age old story of the birds and the bees. The flowers need the bees to spread the pollen, and the bees need the flowers for food. So very simple, but so elegantly beautiful as well.
