Wow, that was a lot of irises. Thanks for putting up with all of them. Here are some birds as a break from flowers. Then it will be more flowers for a while. Sorry about this, but I took a lot of them. But don’t worry, they are pretty, and plus at the end of the month I will have a treat for you! Hurray!

Here she is facing the other way. If you see nesting birds, don't pester them. I took this with a strong zoom lens from far away.

I think this is a merganser, a diving bird.
