The clouds and some rain have F I N A L L Y returned to Texas. We have been extremely dry and in desperate need of rain. While on my way home last night from dinner, I noticed a beautiful flow to the clouds, but have to admit that I only caught the tail of the greater picture. This is the sunset from El. Franco Lee Park last night.

I also have to admit to being a bit distracted with some MAJOR repairs being done to the house. Both bathrooms including one shower were destroyed by termites that the company failed to discover, but I was fortunate to have the insurance and luckily for me, the damages are covered and not coming out of my pocket.
They started replacing the fence today, so things are in a bit of an upset state and I’ll try to get to everyone’s photos directly.

Wishing everyone a pleasant week ahead. Take care.

This is another species on the bayou that is quite common and always fun to photograph. They can become focused on hunting and completely disregard what is going on around them. As long as you don’t make any sudden moves (requires moving in very slow motion) they’ll continue to forage. I pulled up to the bank on bayou a number of years ago had one jump up on the gunwales of the canoe and right over to the other side. It never missed a beat and continued to search for food. The have some beautiful colors as well. Little Blue Heron photographed on Horsepen Bayou.

Absolutely no way to approach across this great divide of water and not be detected. A young lady keeps a watchful eye of her fawn as well as the approaching canoe. Always ready to sound the alarm to flee if I get too close. The water was shallow in this part of the bayou and really no way to get closer and so a distant shot will have to suffice. Photo taken on Horsepen Bayou and lifted from the archives.

Still working on the comments and will get there eventually. Wishing everyone a wonderful close to their week. Enjoy.

These little characters can be quite accommodating if you catch them while they are focused on snagging that next meal. You can almost run over them with the canoe and not frighten them away. Always a treat. Green Heron foraging on Horsepen Bayou.

Busy day and running way behind but will try to catch up with everyone tomorrow.

One of my Flickr posted some storm clouds and it brought back memories of a stormy day at El. Franco Lee Park. The clouds moved dramatically and at one point it almost appeared as if it were raining upward, but there was no rain associated with the system. The other great thing was that there was no lightning bouncing about either. The colors were subdued at first by intensified as the sun settled in the west. This is looking east.

Wanted to change up the flow of the ol' Photostream and hope it adds a little interest.
