What a beautiful morning......bright and sunny, nice breeze and great smells at Brookgreen. I'm getting better and better at getting shots from my car too.

(click to enlarge)It was surprising to me seeing all of the different flowers blooming now from when I usually come in April. This pool is usually a still, black reflecting pool so I was very happy to see these water lilies blooming and since the pool is elevated the surface was almost at eye level. Makes a pretty photo don't think? Note the hovering bee.

Wren. It seems the male Wren builds several nests and the female inspects them and chooses the one she likes best. They will even go so far as taking over a nest that belongs to other birds.....tipping out any eggs that might already be in the nest.

(click to enlarge)I got up yesterday morning, opened the blinds and there were two Green Herons right in front of my villa. I grabbed my camera and went out in my robe to get these photos. Over the years I have taken pictures of the Great Blue, Yellow Crowned Night Heron and the Black Crowned Night Heron so I am pretty happy with this one.
These guys were fishing for little bait fish (don't know what kind) and they were attracting these Egrets. Occasionally they would toss the Egrets a fish. All happening here....free entertainment.
My week at the villa ended this morning....feeling sad. The time flew by. A big thank you to Amy and the folks at Pirateland for their kindness and generosity. The chair above was my favorite place to sit and watch all the goings on on the lake. Sure enjoyed all those evening golf cart rides around Pirateland. Now, I'm at Amy's and I have a computer! Let the real picture taking begin! Tomorrow Brookgreen and we will see from there as rain is predicted.
