Today’s Nature Walk

Today was a yet another beautiful sunny day, so we headed outside for a a bit of a nature walk. What was the first thing we saw. A gorgeous great blue heron!

We stopped by the pond out back and saw a plethora of little minnows in the shallows.

And a little blue damselfly flitting around.

When we turned around we were greeted by two of the local Canadian geese ready for a swim.

On the way back to the house we came across this little buckeye butterfly.

The other day it was really, really windy out and I was surprised to see this little guy trying to cling on to a blade of grass. Every once in a while he would get blown off and would quickly try to attach to another blade. You can see how his wings were kind of blown around.
