Spring was in a holding pattern a few weeks ago. There was unwelcome cold, rain, tornadoes, and floods. Now the landscape is lush and green. But we are still having cold, rain, tornadoes and floods. Yikes. So when the sun finally came out earlier this month it seemed like a joyous event. I headed to Wood Lake Nature Center for some well...nature.
The buds were unfolding their wings.
There was a little bit of color sprouting around. But not much!
A hawk was waiting for a meal to drop by. I love how the new growth looks like a watercolor wash in the background.
All the other birds were darting around for their meals. This photo has a literal water background. But it also looks like a watercolor wash.
The muskrats were swimming around.
I spotted a nest in the vines.
The buds were accumulating overhead. Now spring is turning into summer. But there is such beauty in the contrast of the beginning.
