From the strip pits...

I was at the strip pits today...first thing I saw was the turtle you see here.  He was too far away for a good pic.  After I had taken this pic, I noticed the kingfisher on that old dead tree.
I eased on down the road, keeping an eye on the strip pit and there was this other kingfisher on the end near the road.  I didn't dare try to get out of the Rav but did get a couple shots without him taking flight.  They are usually gone before I ever get close to them.

They were the most exciting thing to be seen, though I did hear several pheasants.
Still waiting on the toot to get here...they were caught in stopped traffic for a bit.  And they have to stop by a friend's house before they get here.  I am anxiously awaiting their arrival.  I wonder what all Lorelei will have to tell us...
