That amazingly beautiful flower is called Lupine. I only know that because my friend Sue Avery identified it for me. Sue was also able to explain to me that this is considered a single flower as opposed to several separate flowers. She added that a flower of this type is called a Raceme. Racemes are clusters of flowers that grow from the same base. So what looks to you and I like a pretty bunch of flowers may be entirely different to a botanist. I’m not at all sure that bees care one way or another. JK

Okay, so this is one of those too cute for words posts, except for the fact that I’ve got three photographs here and I need to add some filler between the pics. If you go through any of my previous posts, you’ll see that I always try to squeeze in some words between any photos. The words don’t always come so easy to me. This is also an explanation of why I post so many pics with no written description. 🙂
These three photos help document the very first day of these two Oystercatcher chicks. I have been following them since before they hatched, and I continue to do so. I was the guy to alert the local Conservation Department to this nest and now I sort of consider these “My Oystercatchers.” This was Nest #33 in their area this year. Several more nests followed. In fact some Oystercatchers are still sitting on eggs as I write this. JK

These are a pair of photos of a Green Heron at Frank Melville Park. It is taking a rest from fishing. It could be that he is full, or perhaps, that he has decided to let me take some decent photographs of him Either way, I am not complaining. JK.
