Winging It

As I took a quick drive down the peninsula road in Hendersonville recently before calling it a day, I stopped at a lakeside park where I noticed three Cormorants were very busy drying their wings on several dead tree branches on Old Hickory Lake. Oddly enough, I rarely see Cormorants except right in this area of the lake.

One of the Cormorants looked to be making a fuss about something as I snapped away. I didn't know this bird had webbed feet which was a little surprising to me.

It has been a busy month for me and with the excessive heat, I haven't ventured outdoors that much. Up until the last week, there were severe thunderstorms almost daily. Everywhere you look there were piles of dead tree branches stacked up to be hauled away. Now it's just plain HOT. I hope you are staying cool wherever you are. I'll be back soon with some vineyard photos I captured last week. ENJOY!


  1. they look very regal and majestic there with wings spread wide. Quite cool down here, about 4 Celsius now at almost 8 p.m. Fire is lit and coffee made. try and keep as cool as you can up North.

  2. They seem to be preening for your photos, Carol!
