Wildwood Park in Harrisburg PA is one of my favorite places
to visit when I am in the area
The Towpath Trail borders the lake and is the one I chose to walk today
There has been a lot of rain so everywhere you look there is water
It's quiet, peaceful and serene to just walk along and watch for what you might see
On my list of things that have been spotted this week is the Great Egret...
There he was flying gracefully or walking in the lake fishing
Since this is the first sunny day in a while the turtles are sunning everywhere you look
An Egret and Great Blue Heron share a common perch
Oblivous to each other as they preen
The water was almost moving and jumping as I watched so I tried to catch a glimpse of what was under there causing the raucous ....
an orange fish appeared!!
Always an ever present Red-winged Blackbird
A very welcome and happy surprise for me to see the Yellow Warbler
Then, out there where the water was jumping and splashing I saw a Blue Heron fishing
As hard as he tried
Diving right in
He either swallowed it or I missed it all together
I sure didn't see the fish if he got it
Looking a little wet and angry he doesn't stick around
Up and away he goes
To God be the Glory ~~ Great Things He Hath Done
