Clear sky, bright sun, hardly a breeze; the lake a mirror. Half a dozen buffleheads diving close to the southern shore. Mallards resting on and paddling near the small island off the southwest inlet; a fisherman on the dock; a blackbird's yellow and red brightly lit by the sun. Marsh pond at the northeast shore full; a few diving grebes off the shore there. Pan fish in the algae close to the western shore. Pair of geese paddling south close to shore. Small yellow butterflies fluttering along the path. Creek running briskly.
