Nature is wonderful!

I "found" a park near me that I wish I would have checked out sooner. Now I know to check it out in the different seasons. It is bigger then I thought it would be. 46 acreas. Not huge by any means, but very nice. Is does seem huge though when the temps are in the 20's. I have seen a lot of birds the 3 times i have gone there and i only found this park late last week. I am obcessed. This little blue jay is all puffed up to keep the cold away. See how he tucked in his little feet? The park is called Sherwood Forest Park. It is in Ashwaubenon Wi. Actually on the border of Green Bay and Ashwaubenon.

Can you see her? This doe was in the open. But my camera wasn't turned on. :(
As I was turning it on she heard the sound and walked into the brush. She just stood there watching me. Peek a boo. I can see you. We stood like that for awhile and then walked farther back into the brush. How can anything this big be so quiet!

This is one of I think 3 bridges. The walking paths follow a creek. There is also a couple of boardwalks. Everything is nicely kept up.

Here is a cardinal just munching away on berries. I think I might print this one and make a christmas card for my mom. She loves carinals.

This huge wasp nest was found at Voyager Park in Depere. I find them interesting.

This sea gull and pelican are facing off over a fish. You can see it right in front of the gull.

And last but certainly not least is this sunset I was blessed to see. I went out into the country hoping to get some sunset pictures. As the time went on I thought that the colors weren't going to be so great...and then this happened! I am so glad that I took the drive out there. Not that the country is so far from my house. lol. I can drive for 10 minutes and be outside town. lol. This was about an half an hour away. But I do hate driving in the dark. So kind of scarey coming home. I saw two deer. Luckily they ran back into the fields. Hunting season here so they are moving alot at night.
Today is my birthday. So I am just being lazy this morning. I have to go to work this afternoon though. Have a great day. Hugs, Teresa

  1. Happy birthday - enjoy your down time this morning.
    Love that park - the bridge is amazing as is all the wildlife. And I am a sucker for a good sunset - and that is an excellent one.

  2. PS: those pesky links are back in force.

  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Have you thought about doing a nature photography show at maybe your local library?

  4. Happy Birthday Teresa!!!!!!! I hope you have a wonderful day.

  5. I want to see what is happening so I can continue to try to fix it. Hopefully I won't have to start over. I know that I am not posting much as I hate that people are having pop ups, etc.


I love comments! So please let me know what you think about my posts. Have a great day. I will not open anonymous comments though. Hugs, Teresa
