Walk with me, part 3

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.

    Great photos. I find it so hard to get photos of birds in flight. The one you have here today is beautiful. Nicely done, Janet.

  4. What treasures you discovered, especially enjoyed the silhouettes of the geese.

    • Sally, it was a wonderful day, filled with beautiful treasures. Fortunately, it’s almost always a good day when I’m walking there. The shot of the geese was complete luck, but I’ll take it. 🙂

    Those craneflies, have they no shame?! Wonderful photos, don’t you just love those times when you’re out and your creativity is flowing.

    • I do, Karen, but I just love being out, creativity or not. 🙂 I didn’t know those were craneflies, so thanks for that and they obviously think the world’s their bedroom! 🙂

    Great pics. I think you’re right about the last one. It appears there was a merging. 🙂
