A female deer keeps an eye  on us, probably a fawn hidden in the grass close by.
Rob likes to remind me how much I complained the first time we went for a walk at our "Sunday Spot" a couple years back. I do remember whining and bitching about how it was too hard for me with my arthritic knee. But now I can't imagine not going for this regular walk, and my knee feels fine. Turns out as long as I'm not over doing it, the walking is great for my knee, which is more motivation to go.

It's not about the birds when we go for this walk, though we always see some. It's for me to kick start my fitbit walking week, and enjoy whatever we may happen to see.

Please enjoy a few photos of some nature sightings we've had so far this month. Click on the photos to enlarge them.

A fledgling Warbling Vireo
So adorable, I watched him for a while, a parent was bringing him food.
A Monarch Caterpillar feeding on Milkweed leaves. 
A Monarch Butterfly on Milkweed.
Mamma Swallow keeping watch in one of Rob's boxes. It was a successful nest. 
I got pretty excited when I spotted this American Toad, we don't see them often.
Wonder what we'll see this Sunday?
