    Sitting pondside this evening I was invaded with birds...hooded warblers, black and white warbler, worm eating warbler, red eyed vireos, blue headed vireo, yellow throated vireo, cardinals, chickadees, titmice, hummingbirds...all sorts of kool stuff! But as soon as I went inside to get the camera...GONE! I'm pretty sure I heard them laughing at me from the brush. So I took pictures of frogs, and managed to get a glimpse of a distant cedar waxwing.

    The build has been done. I only have it done two months, so I have fish, birds, and I saw my very first Dragon fly this week. But I love it.

    So, what lesson have you learned from this? Never go sit out pondside......without your camera or phone!

    My cat hunts frogs then takes them inside the house and lets them loose. Nothing like chasing a frog around your living room.:cat: :mad:
