Continuing with my hike and camera practice at Saint Paul’s Mission:

I tried a few camera settings while taking photos of the eagle.  I didn’t hit on the right combination but I enjoyed the time with this magnificent (and very patient bird).

The reflections in the lake were wonderful!

The only large gravestone left is pictured below.  There are a couple of rusted metal markers.  That is all.  None of the other gravesites are marked now.

I missed another perspective opportunity by not taking a photo of this ant hill in its entirety.  This is a very large colony!

The Oregon Grape is in bud.  Soon there will be yellow blossoms growing wildly all over the area.

Meantime, back home in the garden, the daffodils cheer everybody up!

The apricot tree blossoms provide a lovely backdrop for the showy forsythia!

  1. Ooh-la-la, Laura! I just adore the lake with the reflections in it. And the eagle photos – he couldn’t care less what you were doing. Oh, the apricot tree looks fabulous and a nice balance to the forsythia with a touch of green, blue, and white thrown in for good measure. ~smile~ Roseanne
