I went out the door this morning and just ambled about town with no real purpose. I had the camera along but only took a shot when I saw something that really caught my attention. The first stop was (naturally) the Dykeman Springs Wetlands Park and Walking Trail. I spent some time talking with two gents wading in the creek by the red bridge that I often show here being reflected in the water. Apparently there's a Mink about creating mayhem in the trout hatchery across the road by the spring; they showed me the half-eaten corpse of a Muskrat just under the bridge, a victim of said Mink. They were trying to find the beast to put an end to its depredations. After that I ambled up some side streets and finally made my way to the God's Acre cemetery on Prince St.
Below are four shots from the amble (you're invited to check out the web album so you can read the captions I put on them): a Mallard drake on the duck pond; a Mockingbird up a tree keeping a wary eye on me; another shot of the bridges over the creek along the walking trail; and a shot of a section of God's Acre cemetery, this one in black and white because the shot works so much better than color. Enjoy!
