Who lives in your "hood?"




Mr. B and I went for a Sunday drive and this is who we saw. I'm never fast enough to get a good picture when a bird flies across the road in front of us. I barely caught this egret before he landed in a flooded area where we couldn't see him at all. This donkey I wanted to hug but settled for a rub on a velvety nose. The goose was serenely watching the water flow by. We wondered if it was a male being a lookout for a nesting female.

After the downpour last night, the creeks and rivers were roaring! We saw some amazing waterfalls going over old dams. It helps me understand the power of water and why there were so many mills in New England.

Visit Little Red House and see other photo collages.

Great mosaic! Of course the "hug me" caption by the donkey cracked me up!

You captured them all very nicely. It's a challenge. Yes, the rivers are really tearing now and with very little of the snow melt from the mountains it's just the beginning.
