MONDAY'S PHOTO A WEEK

Hi everyone! Another Monday has come around.

For this weeks photo group I took a couple of shots of the wild life while Alex and I were out bike riding on Sunday. It was such a beautiful day and a lot of other people had the same idea as us. So many people where out bike riding and having picnics with there families at the parks and taking their dogs for walks along the creek. It was such a lovely atmosphere. It made me long to start a little family of our own.

Here are some ducks swimming down the creek


Not sure what type of bird this one is. Maybe a type of Heron or something


This white beauty let me get pretty close


but then he flew away

It was our first time down this bike track. It basically follows a creek all the way along. So much bird life was out and there was so much to look at. We would definitely do this track again. I love bike riding :)

OH, what a lovely day you and Alex had. Great pics! The white bird looks like an egret and, like you, I think the other bird is some type of heron? Someone else may know? I love the last pic where you caught the reflection in the water.
