The day we went to the city to see the whimsical animal sculptures was blessed with bright sunshine, blue skies and pleasantly mild weather.
And moderate traffic.
Blue skies overhead, mid 60s F in the city hall.
Afterwards, we drove around the city. Hit a few jams in the city streets, but managed to find our way to the Golden Gate Park, where we spotted this heron(?). Drive by shot.
As we were rounding the curve we noted something hanging from the bird's beak, we went closer to investigate.
Whatever it is, it's not going anywhere.
I am not aware that these birds eat small animals. Do they? Does anyone know?
Shaking our head at what we just witnessed and photographed, we moved on and found our way to Queen Wilhelmina Garden. As expected we were too late for the tulips. The poppies were on display.
Other flowers on display:
Spring is so beautiful, isn't it?
