Friends, among the lily pads three small chicks swim quietly, you can barely see them, but they are baby chicks of the pied billed grebe. Pretty striping on their heads will disappear as they get older and turn into a solid colored adult. Below is an image of mama grebe feeding her babies, love the spring and summer season. til Tomorrow MJ

these are so adorable mj, and i dont have any trouble seeing your images, they open perfectly in the blog, no scrolling required ….. i had a photography lesson yesterday to help improve my work, but you are streets ahead!
christine, glad to hear about your photography lesson, but you do good work, i think the hardest thing about the nature photography is having the patience to wait for the show, 🙂 MJ
Margie, you might want to consider switching to http://www.wordpress.com. All of your blog we have to scroll over and then down to see the images. With wordpress your blog opens on your image. It’s free.
Hope you and Jim are enjoying the 4th. Today is Jack’s youngest daughter’s birthday.
i am in wordpress.com, not sure what the problem is, never had any complaints, we are waiting for the tourists to go home and take their bang bangs with them, sure is noisy around here after dark, Happy Birthday to your daughter, Jack and thanks for your comment, MJ
All babies are cute!
