Pond & lazy

The pond at Golden Gardens Park is a reliable place to see turtles in warm weather, and today seems to have qualified after several not-so-warm days. The turtles tend to come out in decreasing order of size, and only the two largest were out when I was there. But to make up for their smaller companions, there were two herons as well.

Webster's preferred daytime relaxation pose lately has been like this, one elbow on the window sill, taking a break from bird watching. He especially admires the hummingbird that is a frequent visitor, sometimes down in the flowers, sometimes just above him, perched on the wire. Just behind Webster is the fischertechnik construction that Archie posed with a few days ago.

Kitty alert! For those who don't follow my Blockplay blog, there are two fine pictures of Archie: with blocks, and with fischertechnik.
