Photos often result from our time spent in nature but they are seldom the only reason we’re out there. Truth is, we just love being outdoors. Part of the fun is looking closely to see what each new day brings. Perhaps it’s a flower, butterfly, bird, or something else that appears unexpectedly.
Below is a pictorial ramble through things seen in the last few weeks in central Ohio that amazed or enchanted.
The summer flowers have really been coming through for us this year.
While things are starting to dry out from an unusual amount of early summer rain, it continues to be a good year for fungi.
It’s harder to find warblers now but other birds are filling in.
At first we thought it might be a beaver.
Insects continue to satisfy our curiosity.
. . . and it’s always nice to see turtles and snakes some of which were in unexpected locations due to recent high water.
Sometimes it’s just the place.
Thanks for stopping by.
