Yesterday, we met friends, Dave and Kay, for breakfast at a local restaurant. In the course of the conversation, they asked what we had planned for the rest of the day. We told them that we were planning to go to Ouabache State Park and invited them to join us. So they did!
Dave and Kay had never been there before, but Kay had seen some of my blog posts about it, piquing her interest.
Dave, relaxing and checking out the view with binoculars.
Kay, serving up some refreshments for Doug.
There were lots of mushrooms scattered around the area yesterday.
I liked the interesting leaf in front of this one.
Kay took a short walk, going a little way down a mowed path into the woods. She returned, urging me to bring my camera and go back with her. She had spotted some things that I might want to photograph. I was impressed with the eye she had for what would make a good picture. And I was the beneficiary of that good eye. Here are a few of the results.
Goldenrod with lots of bugs.
This spiny little thing was growing amidst reeds near the edge of the lake.
I think this is an Eastern Amberwing Dragonfly
I'll have some more of Kay's finds in my next post. Stay tuned.
