Year in Photos – Week 17

With Earth Day being this week, I tried to focus on the nature theme; not that it’s any different from the other weeks…

The forests are continuing to bloom, with frogs and birds becoming more vocal.

This small pond in the Laurel Creek Conservation Area is starting to show some green around the edges and it won’t be long before it is lush.

I got a new shirt this week and it works perfectly for the theme.

Thanks to @bignellart for providing me with a new shirt to wear on May 4th!

The Forested Hills ESPA seems to be transitioning into spring a lot faster than the Laurel Creek Conservation Area.

The ESPA forest floor is mostly green and the spring flowers are further along.

What Laurel Creek lacks in spring flowers, it makes up for in birds.

This pair of ducks weren’t very impressed with Lilo, and made short work of swimming to the other side of the pond.

With the nicer weather, we are seeing more people out on the trails. Wide stretches like this make it a lot easier to keep well spaced apart as we pass.

I like how the sun casts long shadows in the late afternoon.

Saturday was the perfect weather to spend some time just wondering and taking pictures. It was warm enough for shorts, but the black flies were also starting to make an appearance.

I’m featuring this 1940 Chrysler P12 Plymouth again because there are so many angles to a get a different shot. I’m really enjoying the ground level perspective.

Even though some of the trees need to be removed for safety, the remains provide some unique photo opportunities.

The forest is slowly reclaiming this stump, with mosses and small plants growing out of it.

While I enjoyed the signs of spring this week, I also saw a lot that reminded me of just how urbanized these spaces have become. Stay tuned for another post on what I found.
