Well yes, if you go to Debi's blog http://giraffeheadtree.blogspot.com/ you will find that I got a little stir crazy and sent her an email titled "Need to get Out" knowing that she would be up for the adventure and rescue me from my home boundedness!
We planned to go to Guntersville Alabama State Park to spy eagles but we made a few detours that were just meant to be!
The first stop was just off the main road leading to Guntersville.There is a nice view of the Tennessee River and a nice place to capture images and possibly... ...a Heron.There we plenty of coots but this strange water pattern caught our eye. This was not made by the wake of a boat.Of course when you're looking for things that fly you look down......and sometimes find things that were left by things that fly!There were things that were not flying, but floating......and oh!!! Not all things that fly leave the ground!!
(want to race????)Ahhh there is something that flies!After getting our fill of this outdoor space Debi and I decided to do a little indoor birding at the local shops in Guntersville.
First, Fants, where birds were in abundance! See Debi's blog for more of the many birds nesting here.
Who could resist the big feet of these feathered friends?
Not me!!!We wandered, on the beautiful warm winter day, across the road to an antique shop that was also full of wonderful flying friends.
Debi knew exactly what this was, because she's been to England. I had no idea!The colors were fabulous!These beautiful Sandpipers were so sweet.We also went to Kala's Cottage that has some really beautiful treasures.We certainly lost track of time and before we knew it, it was time to get a move on! Thank you Debi for making my day such an enjoyable one!
I'm such a big fan of yours.
