Nature's Playground

We're still not fully recovered from 'The Stupid" ( the illness we've all had this week), but I decided fresh air would do us good, so we took a long walk through the woods and prairie at Paynes Prairie State Park.



Dancing butterfly:

Blaze really had fun with the vines in the woods.



Since we didn't find any big animals for me to photograph today, I spent quite a bit of time watching butterflies, banana spiders, and one snake.




There aren't many colored Fall leaves around here right now, but we did manage to find a few to bring home.

I do hope you are feeling lots better, and yes fresh air always helps.

Those vines look strong! My kids would have had a ball playing on them...looks like Blaze did too.

And the snake is just plain old cute. :)

Neat twisty vines! The spider pics are amazing. :)

Oh my gosh, is that a smiley face on that second spider? Very good spider pics lisa! I'd be right there with Blaze swinging on the vines!

I hadn't really noticed before, but yes, the spider does look like it's smiling. That's really funny!
