About Me

My photo
Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills. Started this blog to exchange ideas and commentary with friends and others having an interest in joining the discussions. Greatest life accomplishments include: 1.organized my 3rd grade class to check out library books for me to get around librarian's weekly limit--Amazon.com, the Mullins Elementary 3rd Grade Class of 1956 is still waiting for "thank you" notes; 2. volunteered in the Peace Corps, island of St. Kitts, West Indies; 3.taught adults to read, earn their GEDs., and speak English as a second language; 4. bought a border collie puppy for $6, got evicted rather than give him up, and began a life-long love affair with all things "Dog"; 5. joined a physical fitness boot camp in my mid-50s--don't mess with someone who's been doing regulation pushups in wet grass at 5:30 a.m.; 6. walked across Northern England with best friend Sally--over 80 miles from the Irish to North Seas; and 7. travelled to many foreign countries for pleasure and work.

Great pictures, thanks. I believe they have Canada Geese at the Serpentine in Hyde Park, which is where I probably saw them last. Beautiful birds.

Beautiful shots, Faye! I love the reflections!!!

Carletta said...

Faye, what beautiful light in these!!
This is a grouping of shots you should hang on your wall - well done!

As for my birds: You are right - they feed almost constantly but more so when there's a storm coming. I just sit and click and luckily I get a few good shots and a lot of misses. :)

Just gorgeous! The late afternoon light sure adds that lovely golden glow, too. You got some wonderful pictures.
