Recent explorations in the central Ohio natural places have been good to us. As mentioned in previous posts the warblers are becoming quieter and much harder to find but as is often the case we find other things to fascinate. Below are some discoveries from the past week.
Early summer wildflowers and flowering trees and bushes.
While we’re not seeing the warblers now other birds are still cooperating.
This past week it was fascinating to see Snapping Turtles laying their eggs at Griggs Park.
Other reptiles and amphibians also made an appearance.
We’re heading into the insect time of year. Confirmed by the number seen recent walks.
When you’re looking for interesting insects and flowers other things magically appear.
Hope everyone enjoyed our nature menagerie.
Until next time, thanks for stopping by.
