There are always wild cats in our neighborhood and I love watching their antics at the lake.  Today one came and was down at the bank of the little lake drinking just a foot or two away from the Mallard Couple.

 Lovely reflections....

 Mr and Mrs. Mallard, my resident couple :)

I think this is a female cat, she is so pretty.  The male cat that I have posted pictures of previously is black and white.
Always something new in my backyard wildlife studies.  The squirrel was here at the same time.  Love all the critters!

And the squirrel watched from the Bradford Pear Tree all the time I was taking the photos.
Thank you for visiting.  I hope your Thanksgiving was filled with great food, friends and family.
My wild heart to yours...

Huntington Beach SC trip

Saturday, my daughter Barbara and Darrell invited me along to a trip to Hungtington Beach, SC.  It is only minutes away from where I live and we go there often to take pictures of the wonderful wildlife as you know.  This time we were surprised to see flocks of Pelicans!  I have never been this close to them before.  Usually they are flying just barely above the ocean waves and not too near the shore.  So it was our lucky day!

They were so large and beautiful all facing the wind and sitting in a sun spot on a tiny patch of land in the marsh.

And here is a Stilt above running in the shallows and below are 2 Egrets fishing in the marsh.

Then we came upon this beautiful Blue Heron walking along the causeway bank in the dried grass.

This is a foot print in the shallow water in the sand, perhaps a Raccoon? 

All in all, another wonderful visit!

If you have time, go to my TWO Happy blog for pictures of Fall leaves finally in SC!  Thanks for following and come again soon!

Almost forgot this beautiful picture of wild flowers, love the lavender color on these "tiny whisk brooms".

My wild heart to yours...
