It’s difficult to know which photos to share for my recent walks in the park that I’ve enjoyed visiting while back in Illinois, but let’s start with a photo of something I’d never seen there before: an owl. Silently walking among the trees just at dawn, I saw an owl land not far from me. I managed to get three shots before it flew away, two of the back of its swiveled head. This one had to have some work done on it because of how dark it was in the woods, but I was so chuffed at having not only seen it but gotten a halfway decent shot that I didn’t care.

Sometimes it pays to get down low and smell the clover…or at least take a photo of it.

I often came around corners to find swaths of flowers, often too wide for one photo to contain. Bliss.

There were still some of my favorites: dead plants festooned with spider webs.

One more first time spotting, this time something getting a bit of warmth from the rock, an illustration of the usefulness of telephoto and cropping.

If you enjoyed this tiny walk even one tenth of how much I enjoyed that morning, I’ll be happy to have made your day better. Jo, thanks for hosting these walks when you have the time and enjoy your time away from hosting as well. Your efforts and beautiful walks are much appreciated.
