Spring at Duke Gardens

I am going to get ahead start of Mr. Walkabout on his blog about my recent photo outing to Duke Gardens yesterday. The weather at the gardens was beautiful in the mid 80's. This is a yellow lily with a plash of purple flowers in the background.  The gardens were amazingly beautiful this year in the spring. I photographed many different types of pieces of wildlife and flowers that are located in Sarah P. Duke Gardens along with macro subjects. This is a great Blue Heron I caught yesterday while he was catching the fish for its meal at the pond. I got serval shots of the sequence of the heron catching and eating its fish it caught. This was amazing to photograph the sequence of how the Great Blue Heron caught the fish at the pond at the Duke Gardens yesterday. This a red - crested pochard splashing in the water and grooming its self for the female for the day. I got a sequence of this Red- Crested Pochard as well. This is an Eastern Male Towh

 Happy spring everyone. I am on the blog finally after a month after not doing it. I was on vacation for a week at Virginia Beach and then went to my dads for a couple of days. The past couple of days, I have captured a variety of spring wildlife and flowers that have finally started. The Azaleas  are in full bloom now.  I have finally have a duck and duckling family at my neighborhood pond this year. Last year, however, the mother and her duck eggs were killed by a coyote.
