Day 3 ~ My walk around Green Lake ~ Part 2

While I was walking around the lake I came across the wonderful looking birds. I couldn't tell you what they are. The top two shots are the adults this I can tell by their head dress so to speak, and the the third is a shot of a baby. I did take other shots of the babies but they where so busy diving that I couldn't get a good shot of them. Every time the surfaced they would dive again. Very cool looking bird.

Here is the baby it doesn't have the same markings yet as it's parents...too bad I didn't get more shots of them.

On the last part of my walk I came across this Dragonfly, what I found very cool was the fact that this one has green eyes. How ironic is that? To be on Green Lake and spot a green eyed Dragonfly....the odds are great I would say.


  1. Wow, that is one beautiful, scenic lake. There's not much that can top the combination of a lovely lake with mountains in the background! Your duck, I believe, is a Common Merganser (female and chick).
    Oh, and congrats on your second Kreativ Blogger award!

  2. Thank you Heather ~ again I wasn't expecting another award. Yes the scenic shot here are amazing...I'm having alot of fun.. I'm a little surprised though I don't hear alot of wild life up here. I hear 50 times more animal life/sounds at home. The forests seem empty....maybe it's the heat up here. Reached a warm 40 degrees today....Wow too hot for me.
