Sunday mornings mean water-testing followed by wandering. This morning we opted to wander along a section of trail we seldom visit. Why would two people who work in the woods all week choose to spend their time off wandering in the woods? Because it's what we love to do, particularly together, on our own time. While we both enjoy introducing nature to those who spend most of their time insulated from it, sometimes it's nice just to walk along and share the wonder with each other. We find everything interesting and that sometimes annoys others :-)
Below are three of the 105 pictures I took this morning - it was a slow day image-wise.
Pine Warbler, Dendroica pinus, in an oak tree
Female Downy Woodpecker, Picoides pubescens
Crab spider, most likely Misumena vatia, but I'm not at all certain...
