Heading into Chesnut Park I always have to stop at the baseball field if there are deer in the outfield. They only hang out there very early and are usually gone into the woods before 8am.
This little blue heron was blocking the boardwalk out to the dock. Do I walk past him and spook him or just wait? I would usually wait but there is always someone coming up behind me that’s not going to wait. He jumped down in the reeds and quickly pulled up a crawfish.
I saw 2 Limpkin heads poking out in the reeds and looking closer realized they had babies with them. I waiting until they hit a clearing and was able to snap a few shots of them.
Color on the boardwalk in June.
Walking through the tree path.
The view from the parking lot. The small pond was very quiet this morning.
The limpkin babies are precious!

Like the heron with the crayfish.
Great shots of the Blue Heron, especially the one with the crayfish. Lovely place for an early morning walk.
