The requisite shadow photo.
We had so many nice walks at Wood Lake last summer. Evening and sunset walks are especially nice. And I'm always happy if I haven't forgotten my camera. I missed a just hatched snapping turtle scuttling beside a just hatched painted turtle last spring. Shoot. (I would if I could) And then there was the time we sat down right beside a baby swallow who was looking to the skies for his mom. He was right by our feet. No camera.
There were so many wildflowers, butterflies and bugs. But speaking of bugs, the breeze and the mosquitoes prevented me from taking more photos. Someday I'd like to get a better camera with a great macro lens for times like these. But for now I like the ease of a light weight automatic one.
This one turned out great even without a fancy lens.

Sunset. Another beautiful evening comes to an end. But since it is spring 2015 a new season of walks is just beginning. Thank goodness!
