Oh my Pudgeder, to me that is a very generous compliment. I strive every day to take photos like Dave and Casey. I still have a ways to go.

Good shots. Where is the lake you go to? My relatives live in Dana Pt. and so much to see in that area also

Marie, the area I walk/hike is a wildlife sanctuary in Irvine, CA owned by the local water department run by an Audubon group. The lakes are actually marsh ponds and there are about 12 of them plus about 22 miles of trails.
