Wildlife Wednesday

But first ...

Monday Morning Sunrise
We have had so many foggy mornings on the lake lately, 
I was overjoyed to wake to another gorgeous sunrise Monday morning. 
The lake was so still that morning, the colors are perfectly reflected in the water.

When I stepped out on the deck to photograph the sunrise, this little creature was in my way.

I have no idea what it is.  Just glad it didn't try to hop up on me!
Edited:  Nann was right; it's a Katydid!

And one lonely duck lounging at the spa.

This duck frequently comes by itself and naps on the warm rocks in the afternoon.


  1. Your sunrises are just gorgeous. Interesting creature. I've never seen one of those.

  2. Katydid?

  3. Such a beautiful sunrise! You've really got a great view! I love all kinds of creatures, except bugs - I wouldn't want him jumping up on me either...:)

  4. Loved looking at both those projects in your last post. Both amazing.
    Also amazing is your lake view. Something so captivating about water. I've never seen a katydid but read about them. Always liked the name. Interesting.

  5. Gorgeous sunrise! Hopefully it hasn't been sweltering out your way yet.
