I headed back out to Community Park on another beautiful late Summer afternoon in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Still no bald eagle sighting but an enjoyable hike with my macro lens.
There aren’t many flowers blooming this time of year but i found a few, including this one I have never seen before.
And, without an abundance of flowers in bloom there are a lot fewer insects flying about. But I did manage to see, and photograph a few.
I was surprised to see a couple of dragonflies still darting about, and you can see from the way this critter’s wings have deteriorated, that they won’t be flying much longer.
And like the dragonflies, the leaves are also showing signs of deterioration , and are beginning to show their Fall colors.
It won’t be long now until all of the leaves join in the annual display of color.
The ducks and geese were still on the water and I came across a few feathers they have left on the shores of the lake.
It was a pleasant evening but ended a lot earlier than it does at the beginning of Summer as we continue to lose a few minutes of daylight every evening and morning. We still have one week of Summer left and I am going to enjoy every last minute of it. Here is a link to some more photographs from my hike tonight. https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-page-2/nggallery/photographs-page-two-blog/macro-hike-September-13-2016
