Morning Photo Walk

April 05, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

A couple of weeks age I started walking almost every day in Blacklick Woods Metro Park.  Beautiful trails through old growth forest, lots of birds and benches place at just the right distances apart, which is good for both rest and waiting for the birds to land nearby.  Today's walk was a bit chilly and cloudy, and the birds were not as plentiful as usual.  I did see a couple of Barred Owls, too far away and with too many branches in the way to get a decent photo.  Also saw a Pileated Woodpeck, but too high in the tree, and a chickadee and a couple of cowbirds.  This was what really caught my eye, though.  I wish I had taken my macro lens on my walk, but I did the best I could with my zoom.  I didn't know what this was, but learned from seeing a beautiful shot by photographer Yvonne Horn that they are the flowers of the Paw Paw tree.
