If I Knew You Were Coming...

I'm actually having a good time at home, pretending I'm only responsible for finishing the knits and all the bills have magically disappeared. Humor me here, I have too much time on my hands. When visitors like this come along it's kind of a thrill. Forgive the crappy photos, for I know not when to turn the flash on or off.

This also counts ~ sort of, as a My Florida post cause I've been slacking. If I were in the tourism bureau, we'd never have visitors.








That were 82 egrets in our yard, all at once. 82. Yes I counted. I miss my work. I couldn't get them all in at once, but they calmly walked along looking for food while I snapped away. That should take care of any grubs that may have had plans to move in.

It must be nice to have a purpose in life. Back to the job boards.

so your unable to flash or unflash? well, if you have to have one flaw, thats a pretty ok one to have... what an adventure there was in your yard , all I have is dead leaves.

Oiy! That's not nice! You've got the nicest beaches in the US.

But I will admit, I prefer those sort of visitors ;-)

I really don't think I know exactly what an egret is. They look pretty though. Maybe they are like geese in Oregon. Interesting the first time you see them but then you realize all they do is leave their poop everywhere..

Okay, now that's one hell of a Florida migration! Betcha Dolly had a blast "reading" your yard afterwards! "Them's mighty fine eatin'..."

Wow, that must have been amazing to see all of those egrets at the same time!

82! Wow, that sounds like a lot of egrets. As for the flash, well, you're certainly not the only one with those problems. I may have ruined a lot of vacation pics by overexposing them.

Happy Easter Friend! Hope life is finding you well :)

What an awesome experience! We looked out the window yesterday to see a falcon perched on the railing. It's so cool to see these big wild birds up close!

Wow! That is an amazing amount of egrets, how did you ever manage counting them all! I mean didn't they keep moving around!
