For Memorial Day

I don't have poppies to offer, but I have Firewheels.

Bright Eyes and Non-Bushy Tails

I was taking photos one day from across the pond of a Wood Duck drake. I was mainly focusing on all the reflections as he sat on a piece of downed log.

It wasn't until I loaded the photos to the computer that I noticed something else... Holy crap, that's a huge snake lurking on the logs behind him!
I think it is a Diamond-Back Water Snake, a non-venomous variety, but we also get Water Moccasins, so I'd tread lightly.
 I'd be stock still and wide-eyed, too, if I were that duck!
 The drake glances just slightly to his right towards the snake...
 then returns face-forward and staying still.
 The snake's head is now hidden behind some of the log.
 The drake tucks his chin a little lower and seems more at ease with that.
 But no doubt, he remains bright-eyed and watchful!

March and April Run*A*Round Skies

An evening in March

A couple of moody days in April
 (Sneaking in a few more driveway shots of the Bluebonnets in bloom)
 (And the hay meadow, too.)
  Loved this sky.
