Golf Course Pretty



A Wood Stork enjoying a stroll at the end of the 5th hole. I wonder what his handicap is?

Thanks for your visit to my SkyWatch Friday post, Champ.

I'm on the road and in the field doing another photo trip chasing the bloom of our Rosebay Rhododendron (white blossoms) in the northern area of the Southern Appalachian mountains, and with lodging that does not have the most reliable internet service. I won't be home again for a few more days yet, but I did finally develop and upload a few images to update my July 7 Rhododendron post.

Sunrise this morning was a washout, literally, with locally heavy thunderstorms--looks like the rain won't ease up until later morning so I'm going to breakfast soon. But I wanted to try and get around to all who visited my SWF, and others too while I still have good internet access. So, please forgive this cut & paste with a small bit of personalization added--I do appreciate your visit and your comments.

I don't golf, but I like this whimsical photo of the stork. Now, I'm wondering if they ever pick up a ball and move it? They certainly are big birds aren't they. BTW, I really liked your SWF images as well.

That's it. I 'm going up the wildlife park to find me some fabulous storks and herons! It's so great to see the amount of wildlife around a man made golf course. Your images really convey that message.
