Blue Monday Heron and other guests
linking with Blue Monday and Sally at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com

I LOVE living on the lake.  
There are so many wonderful joys 
that I didn't even know I was missing 
when we lived in the city.  
Quiet nights and stars so bright.  
Not to forget the unique guests 
we get to entertain. 
Beaver next to our dock



Black Mink!!! Yes this is IN my yard!  The family live under the dock next door





Red Headed Woodpecker

greedy squirrel on our deck
I actually had a Raccoon eating from the same feeder but couldn't get to my camera fast enough!
Beautiful deer 
And many Blue Heron This one was enjoying a stroll across our yard
Graceful Swan
And since this is The PAINT Splash...

I didn't realized you lived in an endangered species resovoir. Ha Ha. Great pictures of all the wildlife. The swans looks so regal! The woodpecker is pretty cool.

Cool critters! I live in the woods and constantly take photos of wildlife too-- I use the video function on my camera as well to catch some of their antics.

Thanks for visiting my Blue Monday!

Hi Debbie!

Love your photography...thank you for sharing it with us! I got your note that you want to be added to my email reminder list for "What's Your Answer Wednesday". However, I can not access your email on your profile. You may email me at lostinavalon (at) ymail (dot) com and let me know what address you'd like me to send the reminder to. I'll be sending one out this evening.

Thanks so much and I really look forward to getting to know you better!

I'd love to live where you do-nature is the best entertainment and we seldom stop to enjoy it!

What a lovely dock you have. I can see why you like it so well there. I cannot believe a mink is that close to you. My dad used to trap for them in his young life. They were not black as I recall.
