A few days ago I was admiring the Black-eyed Susan wildflowers growing on the riverbank so I snapped a picture (of course).
There is a lot of other growth there, but the bright orange flowers really stood out.
A little further along the trail, I found several birds. I suspect it is a family of sparrows of some kinds, but only one posed long enough for a 1/2 decent picture. I have a hard enough time telling the different adult sparrows apart, but this one is likely a young one. I’m not even going to try to decide what he is.
This morning, there was a lone female Mallard Duck at the edge of the water. I snapped one picture and she decided that one was enough and flew off, just as I was pressing the shutter to take a 2nd picture. I managed to get part of her in a parting shot. 🙂
It has been very quiet on our walks along the Red River this year. Hardly any babies to be seen unfortunately. 😦
Due to the heat, Chester and I have not walked every afternoon lately – so it is just our morning walks unless we get a cool day.
