    Beautiful as always.

  • Blue Heron, Wilde Lake Park, Columbia, MD, 2022-06-25

    Blue Heron, Wilde Lake Park, Columbia, MD, 2022-06-25

    This morning we saw the Blue Heron at Wilde Lake Park in Columbia. We have seen, what I believe to be, the same bird a couple of times before. I got him with his wings open but his eyes are not in focus. I also got the fish in his mouth, but missed the focus […]

    Laurel, MD, 2022-06-10

    We took a walk around Laurel and noticed that there are a lot of old and tall trees in Laurel. The Art History Bench, which was the work of many tile makers in that are residents of Laurel, had a lot of flowers blooming around it.

    The sky was beautiful on this day. During our short walk we saw a Purple Finch, Tree Swallows, and a Blue Heron.

    Fairland Sports and Aquatics Complex, 2022-06-05

    Fairland Sports and Aquatics Complex is a great place to walk because of the vastness of the trail system. Over the couple of years that we have been walking here, the thing that has stood out is the pond. In the winter it is a normal color, but as spring and summer come it develops […]

    Howard Community College, 2022-06-05

    This is probably my favorite tree in the state of Maryland. I take pictures of it each time we walk at Howard Community College but on this day we arrived at a different time and the light and shadow were from a different direction.

  • Hurricane Agnes Bridge, Laurel, MD, 2022-06-05

    Hurricane Agnes Bridge, Laurel, MD, 2022-06-05

    There use to be a bridge in Laurel on Ninth Street. When Hurricane Agnes made its path through Laurel, MD it was destroyed. Apparently the damn gates needed to be raised and the result was 22.5 feet of water in the river. This washed the bridge away. According to my husband the water reached up […]

    Patuxent Research Refuge – North Tract, 2022-06-04

    The Refuge was hoping today as there were a lot of people in the Visitor Center’s parking lot. So we decided to go to the far side (East). Over the weeks we have witnessed the lily pads growing in the water at a pretty rapid pace.

    Patuxent Research Refuge – North Tract, 2022-06-03

    There were many flowers blooming at the refuge today. Included in the pictures are what I would call a marsh or pond that appeared to be drained in 2021. The pond has filled back up almost to the original width. It is difficult to see due to all of the trees that are in and […]

    Brookside Gardens, 2022-05-30

    As always the grounds were beautiful. I caught a Cardinal in a tree. The light was not perfect and he looked a little fluffy. That wasn’t the shot that I liked the most, the one where he took off flying is my favorite. Not quite fully in focus but I love catching out stretched wings. […]
