Birds and mist
Early this morning, as I was walking by the lake, I was reminded that even in the heart of an enormous congested city, wildlife and nature live side by side with concrete and traffic. It was a stunning sight this morning. As the sun's rays began to tickle the sleepy lake awake, the mist was clinging to the water and refusing to let go, and the birds were preparing for a new day, preening their feathers, singing, catching the first rays of the sun. Great egrets, grackles, ducks, coots and moorhens were my company this morning.

"Brrr... I need a bit of sunshine to warm up"
"Who's that sneaking up behind me?"
"Mmm, maybe I should move to the island over there."
"Off we go!"
"Good, some more sun!"
"Wakey wakey, everyone!"
