This photo is of berries from the possum haw shrub, found near swamps. It adds a bit of color to the drab summer landscape.
and this one is another flying great egret. I never get tired of watching these beautiful creatures.
This last photo has a little story behind it. The poor male grackle spent 30 minutes fluffing his feathers out and loudly singing to a nearby female. She completely ignored his advances. Ah, the neverending story of love!
