An Unlikely Day

We decided to go for one of our usual urban hikes along Griggs reservoir on a recent gray, misty, sometimes rainy, spring day that central Ohio is famous for. A day you can’t help but feeling that you won’t to see much. Once down along the reservoir we began our search for plants and critters of interest which we punctuate with the usual trash pick-up.

It turns out that such a day is great for photographing wildflowers and my wife took full advantage. The quite solitude of the day also brought the Baltimore Orioles out of the tree tops and they, along with a pair of Blue Birds, were a delight to see.

Finally there are pictures that transcend the subject and truly capture our love of the nature. The image below is such a picture. It was taken by my wife on a recent paddle on the reservoir.
