Another Summer Walk At The PPL Wetlands.
It’s hard to believe last weekend was the was the last one in July. It seems it was just Spring and now Summer is in it’s full splendor here in Northeastern Pennsylvania. I spent Saturday searching for and finding a lot of wild mushrooms. I walked over 12 miles so I decided to take a short hike through the PPL Wetlnads on Sunday morning.
It was a clear and cool morning when I arrived at the wetlands and I found a few turtles leaving the waters early to enjoy the warm late July sun on the logs in the canals and ponds. This big fellow was an old timer and could be a many decades old.
The many families of geese that are in the area of the wetlands have been joining togehter in larger flocks as the summer season moves on. Here is a link to some more photographs of birds I saw on my walk https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-2017/nggallery/photographs-2017/PPL-wetlands-birds-July-30-2017
I didn’t spend as much time looking for things to photograph last week since I was off in search of mushrooms, as I will be soon after I finish and post this, but once again, as it always , I had a pleasant summer walk in the wetlands.
I am now noticing the days are already getting shorter and the first signs that summer will not last forever here in the middle latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere, but I am going to enjoy every last day of it. Here is a link to some more photogrpahs from my hike in the wetlands last week. https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-2017/nggallery/photographs-2017/PPL-Wetlands-July-30-2017-
