Wandering at Effie Yeaw Nature Center

July 10, 2019

I truly enjoy being a trail walker at Effie Yeaw Nature Center. I am an early riser, so I am generally out in the early morning. I love the wildlife, but I also love the beautiful trails and the interesting vignettes that may involve weather conditions, vegetation and/or wildlife. Recently, I saw a female Common Merganser, with about 8 babies, rushing upstream quickly from one area of cover to another until they reached a spot to feed. For me, walking the trails and photographing the things I see allows me to connect with nature in simple, every day, matters of life. 

Here is a group of images from those wanderings.
