A Peaceful Day on Fish River

How I love to take a boat ride on the river to see what all is going on.  There is always lots of action and I like to be right in the middle of it.   The cormorants, however, weren’t having any of it.


Two and a half turtles sunning on the remnants of a fallen tree didn’t even jump in the water when we passed by.


A pelican sat quietly on the river’s edge.  I didn’t realize I had captured him “dropping an anchor” until I uploaded the picture.


Another surprise was discovering the osprey in her nest once I got a close look at the picture.  The nest is huge and I could see it from afar but I couldn’t tell that it was occupied.

The peaceful day ended with a full moon rising beyond the branches of the cypress tree.

Thank you so much for visiting today.   I don’t get to spend as much time on the blog these days as I would like to.   You can find me more often on Facebook and I would love for you to drop by over there and say hello.

I loved the cyber tour down the river. You were so lucky to have your camera and to catch all these creatures great and small in focus with the water movement and all. Nicely done.

I love the tour! We have white pelicans here. At least for 3 seasons of the year. I love the drop an anchor comment! Here in Wisconsin the birds are just starting to migrate back in. It is so nice to see them again. But the Lake and some of the ponds, etc are still frozen so it may be awhile until we see all of them.

I really love your post Marlee, I felt like I was in the boat with you. I just "liked" you on facebook.

Beautiful photos. Although I live close to all of this, it's still a treat to be able to find time to get out and enjoy it!
