Today was a little cooler at the lake with cloudy skies.  Being able to go out in the morning makes a big difference on the quality of photos.  While returning after close to four hours today, I came across this little beauty:

Here are a few recent pictures that people are enjoying, and I hope that you like them as well.

Boomer Lake Park is the hottest birding area in central Oklahoma.  It boasts many species of birds throughout the year, some of which  go to the Arctic Circle.  This year has  been especially good for many species that normally don't come into this area, and we have had several irruptions, including the Brown Thrasher.

Winter of 2012-2013 offered the Ross Goose.  Spring showed a few American Golden Plover and Wilson's Phalarope.
