There are some very talented photographers who are kind enough to post their pictures on various threads, but most of the picture threads have a theme.  This is a thread for photographs.  No theme.  It would be really nice to know where the pictures were taken (if you remember).  If it's a picture that's been downloaded from the Internet that you like, please let us know that. I'll start with a photograph I took this morning when I was fishing with my husband.

Awe, so cute! I just had Covid 19 testing today and on the way home after visiting my new swan family with seven cignets I was on a very busy street with construction and this poor deer was spooked and tried to run into the road instead of away from it. The poor thing finally changed course and ran back into the trees. This was at 10 am.

One of my neighbors told me the other day two deer rain right down the street in front of my house. I don't live in the country but a suburb. I used to see more of that but as urban sprawl happens the poor deer go somewhere.

Nancy, when do you get the result of your test? I trust that you'll be negative but I can understand if you find it scary. Do you feel any better than you've been feeling recently? I hope so.

Cathy, I am still having some GI issues. I plan on visiting my Mom who is in a long term care facility. I want to be sure I am not infected. They allow visiting through her patio door only so it is better than nothing at this point. I think they said 3-4 days to get test results so I am thinking I will hear something Friday or Monday hopefully. Then I can make some plans.

Lisa, my YMCA closed permanently which was a huge blow for me and I am sure many hundreds of other families. This Y was over 104 or so years old and part of our historic district. There is another Y across town and much newer and probably nicer but they are not opening up the swimming pool even as other things open up a bit more on June 26. I really don't know how they will work things. I think at this point you have to make an appointment so they can restrict the number of people. I only swim at the Y so I am not interested in the other stuff they have. I have been walking outside some but I don't know why I am finding it so difficult but it has been. I can swim much easier than walking.

I visited the swans after my Covid 19 testing yesterday and they had no bathrooms and it was a wait. By the time I visited the swans as soon as I got out of the car I realized I needed a restroom and this office complex was obviously not having workers as it was pretty empty. I had my cell phone only and the swans were divided up with some with the Mom and the others with the Dad and they were too far apart to get them all in the frame. I will have to go back with my real camera later. There were no workers taking breaks like usual for me to ask how old the babies were. They were not newborns I don't think because they already knew how to dive and eat with their little tails up in the air but still small and very cute.

I like your Monarch pic. I haven't seen many butterflies so far. The butterfly houses that I like to visit with my camera are all closed and I would bet for the whole summer as most of them are small spaces to begin with and almost impossible to keep six feet from each other.

It will be a different type of summer for sure. I am still enjoying my indoor orchids. I just repotted another one today. I have watched so many Youtube videos on orchid care I actually feel like I sort of know what I am doing now. One of these nights I hope to take some pics of my new orchid I had delivered in March with no flowers and very few small buds. Now I think my last count was either 32 or 33 flowers on it. Summer is normally the time the flowers drop and they go into their growing leaf and root stage. Some of my earlier purchases in January are going into that phase now. Not as fun as seeing the flowers. Sooooooooooo, I am thinking about buying another one that will eventually flower!!!!

Take care.

Lisa, I love the colors that complement the Monarch. Your purple flowers are beautiful.

I haven't had a chance to visit the swans but I hope to soon.

GM love that precious fawn.

I finally got to take some pictures on the last day of June. I am still participating in the ongoing photo contest. I had a last ditch effort today to get in my June pics. This was the first time I have been out for a long time. It turned out to be a Goldfinch day.

Thanks Cathy and Lisa. I'm sorry as I thought I had replied but didn't. Actually maybe it went poof because I remember posting that my Covid 19 test was negative. I have had trouble with my internet stopping and starting and I have had some trouble posting on other threads. Anyway I am doing better. I traveled today to see my Mom. We still have her house and that is where I stay. I got in too late to see her tonight and now you have to make appointments to see anyone in this facility. I have to stay outside her patio in the grass with my own chair and she has to stay inside behind the patio screen with a mask and me with a mask as well. One visitor at a time with a time limit of one hour if someone else wants to visit. I couldn't reach the facility when I called this evening so hopefully I can get through tomorrow and be able to see her. I haven't seen her in six months and have had very little time on the phone as she can't hear the phone ring. It is hotter than blazes here so I bought this goofy looking fan that hands around your neck and has two mini fans that blow on your face. It even lights up different colors in the dark. So hopefully that will help some. Cathy, you are in your winter time now I think. I could stand some cold about now. LOL Take care and I hope you are getting well adjusted to your new house.

GM, cute little hummingbird.

Well it is late here and I need to get to bed.

It's been quite cold here and I'm thankful for the heating. We are slowly settling into the new house and getting organised but we still feel burnt out from getting renovations done and moving house.
