Today and tomorrow off this week. I did my usual leisurely stroll through the Dykeman Spring Nature Park on the way to the grocery store. The weather today is cloudy and uncharacteristically mild for this time of year (at 3 pm the a/c is still off and the windows open, and the temperature in this room is still only 77º F [25º C]), with occasional brief, light showers, so it was a pleasant walk. I didn't take a lot of photos because I was enjoying the pleasantness so much. Still, I did click the shutter from time to time; these are the cream of the crop. Enjoy!

  1. That first photo is amazing! I love how still the water is. Did you skip a few rocks across the surface? I wouldn't have been able to resist. ha.

    1. The temptaion is there, but there aren't any flat rocks around to skip. Besides, I wouldn't want to irritate the ducks.
