Osprey at work

Suddenly, an osprey appeared in the woods behind the salt marsh. After a couple of passes it became clear that nesting material was being gathered. We’ve been watching the nests, but this was my first sighting of the year.

Boats on the pond

Saturday morning, no breeze, just after sunrise. The first morning with boats on their moorings after five months. Things are getting serious. (The temperature at the time this image was taken, however, was 32 degrees.)

Louisiana native iris

I visited New Orleans last weekend and I’d forgotten how wonderful the Louisiana iris are. This one was close to the Newman Bandstand in Audubon Park.
