Nature Walk

You don't realize how much wildlife is right in your own "backyard" until you go outside and look for it. We did just that today and it was only a couple of miles up the road. Check out what we found. Enjoy. Catkin

Yes, this is a snake. He was more scared of us than we were of him. How do I know that? Well, I stood there and took his picture and he was the first to slither off.

Love the blog, Kewl pix - I almost stepped on a snake at my mother's Easter, Yikes! my heart was racing, and I actually LIKE snakes, go figure.

Nature walks are the best! You just never know what you're going to find! I don't think I would have been taking the snake pic unless it was with that super duper lens! :) I love the goose family picture and the bee pictures...those are my favorites! Looks like a beautiful walk....God is so good!
