Weekend Coffee Share

Good Morning! Come inside, it’s a bit muggy and overcast today, but at least the heat wave seems to have come to an end. Not that I minded- I happen to love the summer and don’t mind the heat at all. I’ve been on vacation since school ended in June, and enjoying my free time to catch up on things. I’ve been walking everyday, and last week took my camera along to a local park. Early morning is my favorite time of day, I’ll share some of my photos with you over coffee.

I am always on the lookout for birds and spotted a few along the way.

A Warbler- they are so tiny and fast I was happy to catch this one.Then two Goldfinches. People stopped as they saw me standing on the path taking pictures, amazed at their bright yellow color, and saying they would never have noticed them had I not been standing there. All you need to do is look around, there is so much to see!A Mockingbird seemed to be doing a dance on the path, trying to attract a mate I assumed.Success!

A Monarch Butterfly lingered long enough for me to watch him

As did this Swallowtail

And a Cloudless Sulphur

Always thrilled to capture a glimpse of a Great Blue Heron- this one was walking along looking for breakfastAnd this Cormorant was out catching the early sunBy this this time the sun was out in full force and I decided to head home to the errands that awaited me. I have been enjoying meeting friends for coffee and the slow pace of summer. And of course the ocean, where we have been going every week. I enjoy coloring while sitting looking and listening to the ocean waves, and the seagulls all around.

I highly recommend both the ocean and the coloring as means to completely relax and forget whatever else is going on your life!

Well I have enjoyed sharing my photos with you and catching up but the day is calling! Hope you are having a lovely weekend and doing whatever makes you happy!

    • I couldn’t believe how they just sat there in the bush as people walked right past on the path- their vibrant yellow so amazing! I was excited about the butterflies and had never seen a Cloudless Sulphur before- what would we do without Google? πŸ™‚

  2. Great photos Lisa! We don’t have as many birds here it seems, or I’m looking in the wrong places. We like our coffee the same way it looks like.

    • He was a riot to watch! He would run- spread his feathers then run some more, then bow. I didn’t even realize I got the shot of the other bird flying in until I got home !

  3. At the risk of repeating myself: fabulous photos of the birds in their habitat and doing their “thing.”

    I live in the land of rocks, trees, and lakes. But I miss the larger bodies of water, like the Great Lakes. I’m glad you shared your ocean images!
