                                                          Northern Mockingbird


                                                            Milkweed After Rain

   Today is raining on and off, so I stepped out between raindrops and got a few shots for you.  I actually got caught in a bit of rain, but it was really nothing to speak about.  Once I stepped inside, it began raining a little more, so Lady Luck shined upon me.

The mockingbird is a friend from last year, and enjoys having its picture taken.  He moved from Mockingbird Tree last year and is now residing near the Purple Martin House on the east side of the lake.  Mockingbird Tree may have last year's crop of youngsters, where they are now raising their own little troublemakers.
