Great blue heron

While at the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks in Seattle the other day, we saw a great blue heron from pretty close by, looking for lunch. A tough job.

Geese in a park

Got to visit the Carl S. English Jr. Botanical Garden near the Ballard Locks in Seattle the other day. So lovely. Here are some large geese feeding on a lawn.

Opuntia cactus

So much fun at the Botanical Garden (El Charco del Ingenio Jardin Botanico) in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Here is a close up of a nopal cactus. Spiky!

Nopal cactus (Opuntia or prickly pear) getting ready to fruit, I think.

Peacock head and feathers

From that Florida Flamingo Gardens trip, back a couple of years ago. Who doesn’t like peacocks?

Crocodile…really alligator

No words needed. But a Florida resident tells me it’s a gator, not a croc. Crocs don’t get this big.

Powerful crocodile, or maybe an alligator? in Florida

Orange flamingos

I know flamingos are supposed to be pink, but the ones I saw in Florida a couple of years ago seemed maybe more orange. Posting just for fun on this gray Seattle day.

Or perhaps you might say, Mt. Rainier is wearing a toupee? From the overlook near my house.
