A Walk Through the Wetlands (pics...plus plane pics)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
DH and I took a walk through a Preserve Area near our house the other weekend and I took a few pictures that I thought some people here would enjoy. They had several stations set up for scientific observation and we saw plenty of rabbits and birds. Not long into our walk I heard a plane taking off and if I could have turned the camera on faster I'd have gotten it coming right over the tree line toward us. I still managed to get a few decent pics though. Hope you like them!





I think DH was trying to get a closer look there.




Here is the first pic I got of the plane. Since our walk was later in the day I had to lighten them a bit on the computer here.




This one looks photo-shopped to me.






Here's DH again.


One of the many bunny rabbits we saw on the walk. There were several kinds of animal dropping along the boardwalk too. We walked on the boardwalk but also along a path that pretty much edged between the estuary and what was once farmland.


Here's a pic I managed to get of one of the old buildings nearby. The light was really fading at this point.

Great Pictures..

We have a wildlife marsh similar to that one about thirty miles from where I live and it is very popular for school day trips, and such.
I have been a couple of times and have always enjoyed the visits, I particularly like going in the middle of summer because of how many great varieties of dragonflies you can see....

Oh yeah. I'm probably two miles from there only because of the wetlands and river near here. Straight line is a mile at most. When they have the air show I have jets going over every few minutes.

I drive past the base on my way home each day as I go over another section of those wetlands. I'm always watching the planes land and take off. The runway starts pretty close to the highway, and the lights cross it. So occasionally I've driven right under one of those massive planes coming in for a landing and it seemed to be just a few feet above me. I hope to get a picture of that someday!!

I've loved watching the marsh change through the seasons since I took my job in January. In the winter it was all dry and brown and then suddenly it was all lush and green. Now it's fading back to brown, but still very pretty. The only problem with it there is it can be STINKY!! Especially on a hot muggy summer night!
