Wildlife & Nature on a Sunrise Walk at Lake Elkhorn

Continuing with my theme of observing the wildlife I encounter in my daily routines, as long as I pause long enough to observe it — here are a few sightings during a sunrise walk around Lake Elkhorn in Columbia. First I’ll start with a pic of the lake because I was happy to capture the reflection:

My walk started with a heron:

Later on, as I made it around to the other side, I could catch a pair of them way off on the other side:

I was startled by this beaver emerging. I wasn’t sure what was coming out of the water or how big it would be:

There are always plenty of ducks on the lake:


I also saw a hawk! I did not get a picture of it, but I did manage not to fall in the lake as I kept backing up to get a good view of it.

Some blooms and buds to round out the morning’s pics:
