These pictures are from last Monday (4/13) and today (4/19). The birds are very vocal but I am not getting many photos of them. I shot this today of a Red-Winged Blackbird. Not a great shot but at least I got a picture. I see them flying around and haven’t had many opportunities to get pictures.
I am still intrigued by the beaver dam. I do believe the beavers have moved on though. Here is a view looking from downstream of the beaver dam.
The Water Lillys are just about ready to open.
Here is a fern.
Then I saw my first mushroom of the year. It was a tiny one.
I rode the bike over to the west side of the river and I saw a hawk fly in front of me. Here is a picture of where the hawk was sitting while I got off the bike and got the camera out. As you can see he didn’t stick around:(
I saw a few feathers.
Then I took some pictures of flowers.
The first Lady Slipper picture is touched up a bit in Photoshop. Here is the photo before the touching up. Can you see the places I touched up?
These leaves caught my eye. There is something about look of new leaves that I like.
As I was walking I saw this. I don’t think these nuts are native to Hodges.
That is it for my Hodges walks. Nothing exciting although I really like taking pictures of Lady Slippers. They are only out for a few weeks so you have to enjoy them when you see them.
For those folks who read my Ugly Plant post there will be a plant again this year! I think next year I will try to split it.
Well that’s all for today.
