Last weekend, on an absolutely beautiful day, I went out to a nearby lake to do some plein air painting, and here is the result.   The cat tails and broken reeds gave such a beautiful texture to the scene and the colors of the green and blue of the water were truly lovely.    In our area, it is very rare not to see a small red winged blackbird clinging to a cat tail along the water's edge.
Here, though a little bit hidden, his red wing peeks out!

So gorgeous, Helen! You can tell we're not all that far apart in where we live. Do you know I don't recall these birds when I was growing up in Illinois. Since I moved back in 2000, I see them every where, as well as the yellow-winged blackbirds occasionally as well.

Hi Helen, I really like the patterns in the grass and the almost hiding red-winged blackbird.
