We are still on the boardwalk continuing our walk through the marshy area. You can see more Canada Geese in the background.
We couldn't see much bird life out there...
though these ducks swam into view.
Not very good photos as they were very far away, but from the shape of their beaks I thought perhaps Northern Shovelers? The sun was very bright and it was hard to make out their coloring.
In the next photo you can see part of the boardwalk that we take over the marshy area. It is half-a-mile long and leads to a double-tier observation deck. The park itself is a 1500-acre wetland.
We didn't go to the observation deck this time but took the shorter loop back to the car, which you can see below.
We saw more ducks, mallards this time.
There was also a turtle...
moving fast...no, not really. The sweet thing was moving faster than I was.
And there were frogs...
So, we say goodbye to the ducks and the geese, the turtles and the frogs, and we are back in the woods.
Bushes are laden with berries and my surroundings have once again given me great joy. I wish you the same.
"One touch of nature makes the whole world kin." says William Shakespeare.
A lovely thought William! Here's hoping we will get there one day.
That's all from our walk at Huntley Meadows. I hope you enjoyed it, and thank you so much for looking.
