Just gorgeous..the epitomy of spring!

Copyboy said...

wow. So this is where you've been hiding all of the awesome photos.

Joe Cap said...

I want to be there.

Pat Tillett said...

I'm very fortunate that this lake is easy walking distance from my house. No pelicans here though!

James said...

Beautiful shots. That's probably just a few miles from where my inlaws live.

Pat Tillett said...

It's a very nice spot with lot's of wildlife.

SquirrelQueen said...

What a beautiful place Pat, you are so lucky to have it within walking distance.

Pat Tillett said...

SQ - We pinch ourselves everyday.

Great pictures Pat!!!! I used to go fishing down at Laguna Niguel Lake! I'd rent a boat and get some bait and just sit out on the lake all day.

Pat Tillett said...

ABAO - Thanks! It's right down the street from us. We really like that it's so close!

Bossy Betty said...

So pretty! I have tried to take pictures of bottle brush and they never come out to my satisfaction. Beautiful job, Patrick!

Don and Sher Cooper said...

Realy nice Pat, love the one with the red and green, never seen that before.

Copyboy said...

So wish I was there right at this very moment. How many stops is it on the subway?

Ashley King said...

love the first one! =) (well, all of them, but the first one is my favorite!)

Chuck said...

Looks like a nice place to spend a day with peace and quiet...lucky for you!

Sam Liu said...

Those photographs are just stunning, that lake looks so perfectly tranquil. Simply beautiful.

Some nice images. Do you live near Laguna Niguel or in it? I spent 23 summer in Laguna, in a beach front rental off Oak St. I will always love it even though it's overdeveloped and chi chi. I have only the best memories of walks along PCH as a teenager, even at night; beach parties, learning to surf (never did succeed); body surfing and rafting. Your goose is lovely as is the osprey. You don't see bottle brush on the East Coast, that's for sure.

Ooooo, what is that fuzzy red plant? Way cool!
We have geese here at our lake and today they swam up with 6 little fuzzy ducklings...I captured them on my camera so watch for them on my blog in the next week or so.
Loved these shots!

Thanks for your nice comments at my place.

What a lovely lake you have near you. I looked it up and see it also has catfish. As an old Texas girl, I'm especially fond of catfish!

Pat Tillett said...

Thanks everyone!

Betty - Thanks! I like this one quite a bit myself.

Don and Sher - Thanks! It'a called a "bottle brush."

Copyboy - It's about 3000 stops!LOL

Ash - thank you my dear!

Chuck - It is a nice place and it's not too far from where you live...

Sam - Thanks, it's a nice place.

California Girl - Thanks! I live in it. You are right about the beach there. It's too hard to get in and out of, but it's still beautiful. Also Laguna Canyon. Did you used to go to the Sawdust Festival?

Joan - It's a "Bottle Brush." They grown all over here. I'll be watching for the duckies!

Nevine - Thanks so much! If I could take photos half as well as you write, I'd be a happy man...

Kathy - Yup, there are a lot of fish there. A little catfish pan fired in corn meal sounds pretty nice!

Biana said...

These photos look amazing, I love the popping colours. Nice job!

Ms. Anthropy said...

Makes me want to have a picnic. Looks very relaxing and peaceful.

Nat said...

You live near a beautiful place! Great pics :-)

Marlene said...

Absolutely beautiful photos. Makes me wish I was there.

altadenahiker said...

I see you and Brenda share a similar fascination.

Ashley King said...

i want this set of pictures... minus the ducks. all i can think about are the ducks chasing me for bread.... i don't feed ducks bread anymore, because i think it expands in their stomachs or something like that.... i'll trust that they can feed themselves and don't need my old bread to survive.... i really do at least want the top photo.... please and thank you!
