Over the river and through the woods… Well, over the prairie section and through the woods, to the Dupage River we go. On one side, the water piles up behind a dam/spillway, on the other, the river once again runs free. The heron, not spotted on this day, fishes on the wild side. I searched for the elusive frogs on the other side. Near the shore, I see a shot I like.
There’s more to see than just flowers and birds, though. Look carefully and you’ll spot some very small residents. This one was obliging enough to sit long enough for me to focus and shoot.
Shift my eyes (and camera) to the sky. Quickly! Got them.
I didn’t notice at the time, but I think there might be some x-rated insect action going on here. Hard to tell though. We didn’t cover that in the high school sex ed section of health class I taught back in the day! Just an aside about that. It was always deadly silent when I passed out the books and not nearly many students willing to answer questions during that unit!
One more section of the walk and we’ll have finished. But there will always be other days.
