Because I have SO many photos, I am trying to put together a video. I was up until 1AM putting the finishing touches on it...went to bed thinking it was finished, then decided I wanted to change a couple of things around for better flow. Anyway! Here are some more photos that I want to share with you all today.
|I always chuckle at the way a squirrel becomes immobilized when they first see you. It's like I'm a cop, my camera is the gun, and I say "FREEZE!"|
|I could not get over the large, reptilian-looking appendage on this little gosling. A gosling is a young Canadian goose, btw. I think I'll call this one Ryan. :)|
|Bridge at Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden|
|I have never seen such abundant azaleas. I thought Louisiana had the prettiest, but Portland's are thicker and more colorful, I must admit.|
|Great Blue Heron with tiny fish.|
|Crustose lichens grows on a lot of trees there. It's a type of fungus/aglae.|
|Tree Swallow at Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve, Hillsboro, OR|
My daughter and I were able to get incredibly close to the tree swallows. Love their bluish-green iridescent feathers. When the light hits it just right, it's so pretty!
