My favorite local lake for a weekend dog walk is bordered by train and metro tracks, but the frequent clickety-clack doesn’t phase the wildlife a bit. On this lovely sunny day, the lake was teaming with nature. In addition to a myriad of little birds and turtles of all sizes, I spotted–for the first time this season–my favorite (which I think is a heron) at water’s edge before he took off for the other side.
And while the colors of spring have largely given way to lush greens, a few flowers are peaking out for a bit of sunshine.
Thanks Mother Nature.
