A Swell Place to be a Frog...

The Cute Husband and I went to Western Maryland over the weekend in search of Upland Sandpiper and any other goodies that might decide to come out and play in the 95 degree weather.    After an hour of heated searching, the Uppie lifted his head above the long grass long enough for verification. 

We decided to head to Lilypons Water Gardens in search of shade and cooler birding.

The water lilies and lotus were stunning as we watched a Kingbird couple hunting for insects and listened to a Yellow Billed Cuckoo calling.
A touch of the Gardens of Versailles in Maryland...(Hint to Cute Husband... a gal should really go to Paris once every 5 years....)

A Koi Couple staying cool....
