Lake and Foam

Sunday Scenes: January 26, 2014

I took a late morning walk, yesterday, at the lake. It was a lovely day, nature was abuzz with all of its noise resounding from the birds of varied species, the frogs, the grasshoppers and crickets, the family gatherings, and children playing, and the moles. The quietude also surrounded me at various points along the way.

Speaking of moles and quietude, the photograph above shows a Great White Egret, standing motionless, waiting for its prey (a mole) to appear from the hole in the grass in front of it.

It did appear within a few minutes, and the Egret caught its lunch. The photograph is a bit blurred (I did sharpen it a bit), as the Egret decided to move back a bit, probably fearful I would try to take its catch.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

I am sorry for the update, I positioned one of my photographs wrong.

Lakeside and Birds

I have finished reading The Innocents.

I am currently reading We Are Here: Memories of the Lithuanian Holocaust. I am also reading the novel Orphan Train.

I have slowly returned to my normal routines. I still listen to the news, or read it online, but it doesn’t take up the majority of my day. Life seems to have somewhat returned to downtown Boston, too, on the block where the tragic events occurred. I give the people of the city credit for moving forward as best as they can, and staying strong, Boston strong! My prayers are a constant.

I managed a walk at the lake. The photographs above were taken during it.

Sorry for the update…my photographs were not shown correctly.
