On Friday, I went for a walk at the reservoir and decided not to carry my camera. Of course, you all know how that goes. I saw a green heron. I'd never seen one before and wouldn't have even known what it was if I hadn't seen pictures that other bloggers had posted. This one gave me ample opportunities for photographs, but it wasn't willing to wait for me to go to the car for my camera.
So, when my friend, Pat, suggested that we walk together at the reservoir on Saturday, I made sure to carry the camera with me. Of course, there was no green heron. But I did find other things to photograph.
A lovely chicory blossom
Unfortunately, this picture doesn't show the red on the wings of the Red-Winged Blackbird.
Two Mute Swans flew over, and I snapped a quick shot.
The path around the reservoir looks down on Amish farms. This little guy, leading his pony in from the pasture, was too cute to resist.
There was a workday going on at this Amish farm. Some of the buggies are visible here.
Several men were busily at work erecting a new building on the property.
This buggy and wagon was headed for the work site.
Even with this closer look, I'm not sure what that cargo is.
