Day 178 - 26th June 2013 - White Throated Sparrow, The Lake, Ducks and Water Lilies

Finally woke up at the time I should have - not too early or late. Although I think I could have rolled over and gone back to sleep. Day off and looks like I've got some housework to do - suppose to rain but they have been giving that every day so I'm just going to ignore it. Still warm and humid, summer has arrived. Haven't seen the geese for several weeks now, assume they may have gone down or up the river when the water rose a few weeks ago. Hopefully by now they are big enough to look after themselves, they should almost be old enough to fly.
No rain yesterday but lots of sun and humidity, temperatures rose to at least +33C. Yup that was hot! And even more so in my office. Oh well, got some progress made, researchers were in, all in all a busy day. To end it off I got my hair cropped - Thanks Tam. Feels so much better short, short, short. The only bad thing is it grows so fast and is thick - this time of year I like it gone! A walk after supper, quiet around the hood, must have been too warm for the birds to even be around.
White Throated Sparrow, had  a hard time catching him - he was really lively and chatty!
 Along the Lake in the morning, just a hint of color in the sky.
 Reflections in the lake.
 Female Mallard.
 Love to watch them go bum up to feed.
 Sailboats in the Harbour. These days you can always see a few - so peaceful.
Seeing lots of water lilies these days.

Enjoy your day!
