We spent a lazy day around Wilderness Lakes yesterday.  There are a few people playing pickleball in the the mornings so we joined them for a few hours of fun.  We took a run over to a nearby outlet mall on Newport Rd after lunch.  The parking lot and stores were very busy.  Once we got back, I grabbed my camera and went on a little photowalk along the small canals inside the preserve.  There are loads of birds here and many of them show no fear whatsoever, often walking to within 10 feet of my camera.  Hope you enjoy the photos.
