Lake Katherine May Sightings

After the rain it turned into a beautiful afternoon and I took a leisurely stroll around Lake Katherine.

Eastern Wood Pewee Cropped 2

I believe this is an eastern wood-pewee.  I often hear the pee-a-wee whistling call, but almost never see the bird.

Tadpoles in the ephemeral wetlands.  The pond was full and surrounding grass area was very wet.

A water strider walking on water.  Apparently its legs are covered with microscopic hairs which trap air, helping it to float.

Yellow buckeye tree

It looks like a honeybee on the yellow buckeye flower.

I think this is a song sparrow that I must have disturbed near a nest.  It chirped a long time until I walked away.  It looks like it has a grub or something for a baby bird.

Happy Mother’s Day!
