There's a small lake just a block away from our house. You can't walk all the way around it, but you can walk along the one side. This morning the weather was beautiful and the kittens were asleep, so I grabbed my cameras, my hat and my walking shoes and I decided to take a small walk by the lake.

|The city has placed a few benches along the way but I kept moving along.|
|I kept hoping I would see an egret sitting on top of the cows that live at the far edge of the lake, but it wasn't to be today, Pixel!|
|I spotted a lost bobber and thought of Live & Learn. I love the reflections in the water in this picture. Very impressionistic.|
|I bent down to examine magnolia seed pods that had fallen to the ground and when I looked up, I saw this squirrel spying on me from above. It was strangely silent. Usually they're cackling to warn you off but this one didn't make a sound!|
|Magnolia seed pod and seeds... that were chewed by the squirrels!|
|I kept hearing a very pretty bird song but didn't spot this bird until it flew on top of a structure behind a metallic fence. I'm too tired to look up what kind of bird it is right now. I'll have to come back and update this post later :)|

Have you taken a walk in your neighborhood recently?
