I had a very hard time deciding between three photos. All of them involve lakes.

I’m seeing some great stuff so far!

I will most likely use the title in the reply title; if I add the rest, it might not fit.

I can give it a try, and if it fits, I'll use the whole title.

I planted a few Butterfly weed plants in hope of attracting monarchs. It didn’t work. But I got a few images from the plants.

This winter put out a feeder so you can attract birds
I’m putting out suet again so I can have some woodpeckers.

Since it's still technically summer, and I just had the most glorious Monarch butterfly visit my Lantana, I had to change my entry. Serendipity. Looked out the window and there it was! It let me get within a few feet and was so busy feeding, it didn't care I snapped about 30 shots as it flitted from one spot to another. Then a hummingbird came to check me out! It, however, wouldn't stay in one spot long enough for me to focus. Eh...still, a wonderful moment in the garden. That is summer for me.

We're off in the mountains, far away from a cell phone signal. I probably won't get a chance for a second entry.

Enjoy your visit in the mountains!

No telling at this point if we'll need a second entry. Of course I'll announce it if we do.

as I remember going fishing as a kid and seeing my daughter fish with my Father when she was 6.

This is sharing an experience, not just a picture.

Cloudy day that day at Sunset Beach but for some reason I like that picture more than hundreds of others I have of the beach.
I am very impressed with each and every entry!
