All of these shots were taken from my back yard, which some might call my front yard since the house technically fronts the water. I'm a bit stubborn and slow to make changes, however, and I've always called it the back yard since we approach the house by car on the other side--which I refer to as the front yard.
That first paragraph absolutely exhausted me, I cannot imagine what it was like to read it.
Anyway, I never know what I'm going to see when I glance out back. The other evening, I saw this eagle patiently perched across the creek. We see them all the time in flight and in trees; this is the first time I've ever seen one wading in the creek.
Herons, on the other hand, are very familiar friends. It's not at all unusual seeing them wading along, waiting for just the right morsel of seafood to happen by.
The first rainbow of the season made a faint but quaint appearance earlier this week.

Mother Nature puts on some spectacular shows here in Mathews, and her efforts this week were especially noteworthy.
Welcome to the month of May, I thought she'd never get here.
