More This and That from July and August

Onward with more
photos that I  have captured
July and August!

One of my favorite flowers of the summer
are my
orange field Lilies:

I love looking at baby fluffy duck butts when they dive for food:

Right on an island on our lake
is a big huge tree....
and 60% of the time, there is an
eagle in that tree!:

Ducks continuing to swim by our dock:

A cutie pie Sparrow at our feeder:

I loved the water droplets on this Lily leaf:

A lily after a rain..
you can tell it is towards the end of it's beautiful life
because it's petals are starting to ruffle:

I love how all the stamens are
facing toward the sun in this shot:

Gorgeous, goreous stamens!!:

I hope your
July and August
was full
Nature's beauty, too!!

OH Lordy, that eagle is exquisite.
I am anxiously awaiting the fall colors too, my absolute favorite time of year.
