Summer Day, Bartlett Pond, Manomet, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA

A typical summer day on Bartlett Pond - not much happening - and I like it that way. Cape Cod Bay and the Atlantic Ocean are just past the line of houses on the horizon. 

This great blue heron likes to perch on that rock - until a human, in this case, a kayaker with a passenger dog gets a little too close for comfort.

What makes this scene remarkable is the magnolia flower petal that just fell - in August! - I remember the whole tree had bloomed back in April - go figure - I guess that's nature's definition of a late bloomer. 



Late afternoon light on a rose of Sharon bloom.

One of our regular hummingbirds not doing any humming at the moment. Just sittin' on a branch like any regular bird. (Not very sharp image - I can blame my point-and-shoot camera).

Another late bloomer.

This pretty-close-to-perfect day on the pond draws to a close.
