30 Bananas a Day!

My trek, all about flying things ... mostly :o)

Wow, my first blog post and it's all about my little trek on Saturday which was about 6 hours long.   It was a great day even though it was overcast, windy and it even rained a little bit at the end of the day. 

When I go out to the nature trails here, I always see everyone speeding around on the paved pathways ... running, rollerblading, biking, little motorized bikes, etc.  I always think to myself that if they don't slow down to see the nature around them, they are missing the best part.  Unfortunately, I rarely see anyone who stops to look as closely as I do.

I started off in a little half round walking path cut through a little bush area.  It must have been the light wind that made the little flyers want to stay sitting, which made it great for me to catch a photo.  There were tons of butterflies and other things but luckily not even a mosquito tried to bite me.

I was excited to see the mulberries are coming.  I seemed to find way more trees this year.  Both in and out of the forest.  I can't wait till their ripe!  Yaeey!

I went over some beautiful meadows that look like they're in full bloom.

Here's some little flyers I found near the meadows ...

I went by the marsh area near the forest and found a swan taking a nap in the reeds ...

Near the marsh I found a couple of ducks lounging ...

After roaming through the forest for a while on the trails, I sat down beside a pond and surprisingly a family of swans immediately swam over to see me from across the pond.

Once the swans reached me, a family of Canadian geese swam over to see me too but then the male swan swam over to scare them away.  I didn't know they were territorial like that.

I was also shocked to see this beautiful bird below, which was so big compared to the usual baby ones I see from time to time.  I have never seen one so big until now.

Happy exploring everyone!
