We had storms most of the night, but when I got up this morning I still wanted to get out for a walk. It was sunny, cool, and breezy this morning so I took a walk, sometimes muddy, down at the disc golf course close by. I brought along my camera on my hike or this wouldn’t be much of a blog post.
This squirrel seemed to be recovering from the night’s storms by sunning himself on a tree branch. He didn’t seem to mind me standing there shooting his picture.
There are a lot of wildflowers out as it is still late spring here. I like the Mexican Hats in the top image as they are past peak bloom and seem kind of symbolic of the end of spring. I managed to make them stand out against a blurred green background.
I stood by the rain-swollen creek for a while. I saw a water moccasin swimming but before I could get a good shot he was gone behind a rock and just got the end of his tail. After a while, I did notice a frog sitting very still on some branches in the stream. He didn’t seem to mind me at all. Usually you only hear these things in the evening and don’t see them often.
I found that just standing near the stream for a few minutes would allow me to notice lots of things that I would ordinarily walk by.
My shoes are a bit muddy now, but I had a nice walk.
