A Sultry Day on Lake K.
Lake Kittamaqundi looked so steamy this morning around 10:30. I was on a short walk to Lakeside Roastery, hoping I was early enough to be ahead of the worst heat, but I wasn't so sure when I finally reached the cafe.
The heron was vibrating its "cheeks" rapidly with beak open -- a cooling mechanism?....One of the new peninsulas on the lake has been planted with wildflowers. Right now, mostly wild bergamot, related to bee balm, is in bloom.
