When I saw the Sun reflecting of the water I thought how would a close-up come out. So I zoomed in and found out. Warren from England was right on with his answer. He has a neat birding site.
#2 I was on a walk through a grass field and found this soul from a shoe. I thought the tread pattern might be too easy. I decided to show the curl at the bottom. I guess I made it too tricky.
#3 The bird was a young Cowbird that was moulting. This bird does not raise its young but lays the eggs in someone else's nest. This bird was originally a traveler with the Buffalo and that was the way they were able to continue their line. You can see the beak and shape and can recognize the bird. This one had a female Cardinal along with it. Tina is a birder and always has great bird photos on her site. She was able to help me with the ID.
