Shadow Shot Sunday

Back again after almost 2 weeks away. We had a lovely reunion with my husband's family in Lake George last weekend. This annual trip is a chance to bring my father-in-law to Saratoga Springs for horse racing - a trip he has made for over 40 years every August weekend. Now he needs support to do that and this year we all went down. We've decided that this needs to be our yearly reunion time, even if Dad can't be there.

It is time for shadow sharing. Another week of gorgeous weather, although this weekend we are returning to high heat and humidity.

 This big creature was at the Art Fair we went to in Lake George,

I finally got to see the new baby doves when we got home last week. It won't be long before they will fly  away as well. This was the first summer we had repeated nestings - 3 sets of dove families this year!

Be sure to check out the wonderful shadows from around the world here.

Looks like a super place for family reunions.

Some year I would enjoy a genteel August watching the ponies at work on the track...that is quite a grasshopper, happily it is sculpted instead of real! The dove families in a season is wonderful, the circle of life (mostly) you can enjoy thrice...nice captures!

The grasshopper reminds me of Pittsburgh Zoo.

Bev girl you are so lucky to see the dove babies !
We have doves here but so far they haven't built a nest close enough to us .. one day ?
I hate this weather .. the drought has been terrible .. I don't do veggies .. but some herbs !
I guess we can't count on a gentle summer any more ? BIG sigh!!
Great pictures girl : )
