Thursday at Belfair

Before I picked up Tyson and his family at the airport for an extended 4th of July weekend I managed to sneak in a quick trip to Theler Wetlands. Birding was actually rather poor, limited to the usual Red-Winged Blackbirds and Mallards with accompanying ducklings.

However, I did enjoy watching this Kingfisher fishing,

even if it was quite a ways away.

I’d resigned myself to taking pictures of flowers, like this newly emerged Coreopsis,

and this red and yellow lily

when I came around the corner of the garden to find a whole flock of Cedar Waxwings eating berries.

I would probably be enthralled with this picture

if I hadn’t taken an even better picture last year in exactly the same spot.

Luckily, such beauty seems ever new.

  1. My favorite is the Kingfisher fishing. An amazing photo. These recent days have been clear and sunny, breezy up here, too. Pacific Northwest summer at its best.

What do you think?
