Lake Margherite

DSC_5472

I took another walk around Lake Margherite in Scottsdale by where I work last week. I love it there. This is a small heron that I think may be a Green Heron but I’ll never really know for sure. He may also be a Night-Crowned Black Heron, which I have seen before here (see my previous walk around this lake)~sadly, I have always spelled the lake’s name wrong until now).

Whatever he is, he didn’t much care for the attention and flew to the other side for some privacy.

And here are a few more sights around the lake:

Dragonfly 8.15.14

Hawk 8.15.14

All the trees are numbered.

Crested Mallard 8.15.14

Remember a couple months ago when I saw a baby crested mallard at another lake in town? Well, here’s an adult one swimming with her friends.

And a lovely Giant Swallowtail flying over the lake.

This is the lake from the far end, it curves some so you can’t see the whole thing. One of the benches…
