Just after sunrise this morning

It was gray and overcast this morning, but so warm that after brewing tea and seeing Joe off to work I took a walk in the backyard in my pajamas. There was a fog on the lake. I thought it might make a nice picture.
This is my rosemary plant still blooming.
Halfway to the lake I startled two white tailed deer in the woods. Too quick for me! I heard them rustle, lifted the camera, but by that time the two were nothing but white tails flying through trees and leaves that matched their colors perfectly.
tree tops...
Another tree down! This is the second in a month. Sawed off artfully by our friends the beavers.
And then, the very loud SQUAAAWK- Haaaank of a heron had me jumping out of my slippers. He must have been 15 feet from me, as he lifted his big wings and headed down the wooded shoreline. How wonderful! Some days I get lucky.
This young deer is one of the pair I saw this morning. I caught this shot of him in October. He was heading toward me, seemed very eager to meet me, but his mom had better ideas.
Well, that was early morning here. Have a great rest of the day! Oh, wait! Check out Rebecca Ramsey's post this morning. Good stuff!

Ronnie, I never knew you lived in Heaven.

I agree with Renee. You live in heaven and I want to come and visit. How lucky you are to live somewhere that seems to be lifted off the pages of a story book.

Wow! Your comments are making me see my backyard in a whole new light. Speaking of light, I think the early morning light made my surrounding look much better than they actually are. Next time I'll take some in full sunlight and of my unweeded flower beds, the garbage cans and the pile of mulch I've been meaning to spread for two months!
