Hey Herman, the map says........

  1. Well, I wanted to find some humor! I saw these egrets at the map that details the refuge. Normally, this would be on the side of the road for easy access. Well, right now it's easy access if you're an egret or have a boat! Hagerman is very badly flooded. Ok, technically, I know my photo isn't the greatest, so ya'll laugh!


    LOL, notice the egret walking at the far left? :biggrin:

  2. LOL! They must be confused by the flood and lost their way.
     
  3. I think it's a great image! send it to the papers!

    Best,

  4. Wouldn't surprise me if they were confused! I couldn't believe how far the flooding went! Definitely funny though! Thanks for stopping by!

    LOL, dunno if it's worth the newspapers, but may give it a try! Thanks for stopping by!

    Flood, what flood, it's like that here every day....

    actually cool idea.
     
  8. Thanks Frank! Just wish I could have gotten a bit closer! I wasn't about to walk out into the water - even if the road was under it! I saw birds today that I hadn't seen before - one was a junenile GBH. just don't have any really nice shots! YET!

    LOL, we've been getting more rain than usual, BUT at least all the area lakes are filling up. Thanks for stopping in!

    Thanks! I can tell ya, on a "normal" day, the birdies are out in number and we have a blast! Hagerman is never the same 2 days in a row. I love going up there! Thanks for stopping in!

    Cute image Dianne. I wish we could get some of that rain here. It's hot and dry in my area.
     
  10. Thanks! I was sooo disappointed that I couldn't get out any further! So, I just stood there and tried to get birdies but they were really too far out for my little bazooka jr. Most of our area lakes are now full or above flooding stage. Hagerman Refuge is REALLY FLOODED! In another area, I saw picnic tables out in the middle of the water. Anyway, it was still fun! Thanks for stopping by!
     
  11. Cute and funny shot Dianne, Send some rain here very dry.
     
  12. Thanks Gary! We've been getting enough rain that all the area lakes are filling up or already full and overflowing. Thanks for stopping by! Hope ya'll get some rain soon!
