Rev 22:1 And he showed me a river of water of life, bright as crystal, proceeding out of the 5throne of God and of the Lamb in the middle of its street. ~~~ Live in the USA? Get a free Bible and free Christian books

Temperatures barely reached 60 degrees Fahrenheit and the morning was windy and rainy.  For such a blustery day, I was not at all sure that there would be something new to share.  But there was... something new congregating.

I am not sure what these brightly colored bugs are.  Box elder bugs?  If someone knows the specifics - please fill them in with a comment.  The contribution would be appreciated!

I also saw no less than nine white egrets loosely gathered along the creek east of the east bridge and a pair of equally large darker egrets.  Unfortunately, my camera battery was too low to capture those for you.  Perhaps I need to invest in some new camera batteries?  These were supposed to have been freshly charged.  Sorry!

Hope you enjoyed!

These are not box elder bugs - they are milkweed bugs.  Milkweed bugs look similar to Box Elder bugs but have more orange.  They tend to congregate mostly on milkweeds.

    This one makes me wonder if perhaps there is a hidden rookerie back there.
