Birds From Lilypons

A recent visit to Lilypons Water Gardens produced the following photos of a Great Egret taking wing at my approach...



A bumblebee was busy pollinating some of the beautiful flowers...


I found this group of Tree Swallows that appear to have roosted in some wild berry bushes the night before...

 
There was a lone Barn Swallow with the others.  The Tree Swallows seemed to accept him cordially...
 
 
Never before have I been able to approach any type of swallow so closely...
 





Before leaving I snapped a photo of this Great Blue Heron overlooking the Koi pond...


My next stop was in search of a Whitetail fawn.  Although no fawns were seen, I did get this shot of a doe...


Before heading home I spotted this yellow wild flower.  It is probably the blossom of an undesirable weed but the colorful bloom caught my eye...


As always, thanks for visiting, come back soon.
