Nature Pics

Two weeks ago I took a walk around the lovely park by where I work. I was thrilled when I spotted this stereotypical silhouette:

And even more excited when I used the maximum zoom (digital):

After that I saw numerous wildfowl, and the nutria, and took some abstract water photos, and then on the way back I found a four-leaf clover! It was an excellent day.

Last month I took a walk at Mt. Pisgah Arboretum, near Eugene, Oregon, and took a bunch of pictures. This is one of my favorites--a bee in an Oregon Fawn Lily (thanks to my hiking partner for noticing the bee!).

And this is a photo of a venerable incense cedar.

That is an excellent bee photo. We're going out morel/wildflower hunting later today, and I will take the camera. And maybe a poppet.

Ooh, fantastic pictures! Actually, of all of them, I think I might love the cedar the most. It's so mystical and holds so many secrets, I think.

Fantastic photos - espcially the bee! I totally agree with Kim about the cedar :o)
