Caption: Spotted this great sundog and wished there were some birds around when the flock of snow geese in the other pond lifted off and flew across in front of it!

About Nikongranny


Old, retired with lots of time on my hands and a Nikon. Lucky for me, there is a park just north of town that provides me with migrating birds and sunsets. Since joining this site, I have a new appreciation for this scenic world we live in. I especially love the comments from so many great people on here.
