We’ve had a lot of rain lately, but during a sunny, albeit cool day, I took the camera over to the preserve on Corkscrew Road. I never know what I’m going to see there, and I like that it’s a place where I can get away from people and their noise. All I hear is the wind in the trees and an occasional bird call.
This lets me know I’m in a wild area. 🙂
I set off along the path. Suki wasn’t with me this time; I was concerned about bears and panthers. She’d make a nice mouthful for them, wouldn’t she?
It was mid-afternoon, and I was happy to be tramping around in the woods again after a prolonged period spent inside. Much as I love being at home, I also crave the great outdoors, with all it has to offer. Nature relaxes and refreshes me.
Saw this feathery plant and snapped a shot. Because that’s the only thing I saw, I processed the photo so you would focus on that plant. It fairly glowed in the sun.
Here’s another plant that caught my eye. No idea what it’s called, but it almost sparkled in the light.
There is a huge swamp at the end of one of the trails, with a wood walkway to take you out over the wet. Because of all the rain we’ve had, there was a lot of standing water in the area.
I didn’t see any interesting ground animals on this trip, but I did get pictures of some birds. You’ll see those next week.
Have a great weekend!
