I have always enjoyed my walks in the woods but always more so on Sunday mornings. Such a beautiful world we live in and enjoy the peace and beauty of nature to reflect on the week ahead. snake- 2 PPL Wetlands  (1 of 1)

Today decided to head to the PPL Wetlands again since there is so much to see this time of year. And I wasn’t disappointed.  The trees  are now adorned in that  that light new green of Spring. It makes you feels so alive. And those branches and leaves were filled with so many  song birds. So many eluded my camera but I still got to enjoy their songs. And I did manage to get some photographs of a yellow warbler, a red winged blackbird having an insect for breakfast, a baltimore  oriole  and an american redstart.yellow warbler  7 PPL Wetlands  (1 of 1)

I also once again encountered so many turtles sunning themselves on the canal banks and log. And a lot of snakes and frogs but most eluded my camera. I did get one snake in the water. I also saw a muskrat but, he too, was too quick for my camera.

It was a great day to be outside but I was a little disappointed I missed so many photo opportunities and didn’t get anything real exciting to share. It was like a bad day golfing or fishing, still beats a good day at the office. And my day wasn’t over. I had a most unique experience when I spied a large snapping turtle on the water. It so so unique I will try and do a separate blog post. It is pretty coolsnapping turtle and PPL Wetlands  (25 of 26)
