About a year ago I purchased a pair of bronze clay dragonflies from Summers Studio on Etsy and they've been hanging out waiting for a home ever since.  Last week my very generous friend, Diane Cook, gifted me a pair of shimmery green and gold briolettes. They reminded me of dragonfly wings right off.  I love them together.

White pelicans migrating back to the Pacific Northwest

I love it when you nature gives you little surprises. That happened today.  A good friend mentioned last night at dinner that white pelicans had taken over a pond in her neighborhood.  It's the first time they have come.  I had never seen a white pelican.  So, today I gathered my camera and went for a look.

They were a little shy at first - floating away when I pulled out the camera...

But then curiosity got the better of them and they floated back...

...until a cormorant diving nearby began stirring up the fish...then they got moving that way.
