More Pink Morning Glories

Morning Glories grow wild along the roads through many of the wildlife management areas around South Carolina.

These pink ones make a bold statement as they reach for the early sun.

I prefer lining them up with a solid background like the first two images with the blue-grey water behind them, but found this final image with layers of trees, marsh grass and water appealing, too.

I started this post in Classic Editor then finished it with the new Block Editor, hopefully without creating display issues.

Roseate Spoonbills, Another Opportunity

A few miles from where I hoped the Roseate Spoonbills, Would Come on Down I spotted another group with a few Great Egrets gathered in an old rice field impoundment. They took off before I got to a gap in the reeds where I could get an image.

They circled the area, staying low.

A few of the Spoonbills went right over my head before settling in another connected impoundment.

Wild Pink

Wild flowers have been allowed to grow unmolested by the lawnmower at Magnolia Cemetery in Charleston and this morning there were more types than I ever remember seeing there. A nice patch of these pink beauties, perhaps some kind of mallow, caught my eye.

A single bloom off on its own shows  delicate pink shades.

The ground was dry and after scanning for snakes, ants and other creatures I got down on the ground for a few images
