Wildwood Park Nature Center

Many come to Wildwood Park to see the flowery pageantry of the American Lotus
Cream to Yellow flowers and seed pods can grow to 6" to 10 " across
Great Egret  forage among the lotus for amphibians
Looks like he is singing
Blue Herons are often seen sharing the lake with Egrets

Here you can get close to Great Blue
and observe the preening of his feathers

Wood Ducks are  a common sight also
A baby I came across on a log
The little cutie didn't stay long
He went off to join his mom and dad
The turtles like to sun on logs
My big surprise was this young Green Heron standing on a snag
As I walked down the path I almost missed him
I knew he must be a juvenile because he stayed put
Oh My ! What big feet he has
and what a beautiful eye
You just barely see the blue green on the top of the head

To  God be the Glory  ~~  Great Things He Hath Done
