Pair of Doves
Other than maybe getting about half of my 10,000 daily steps in, my lunchtime walk was mostly a bust. I saw a few critters but nothing was really cooperating with me, including a beautiful woodpecker that was perfectly posed for me until I got my camera up.
However, as I was leaving the park, I did spot this pair of doves and, since they didn't fly off the second they saw me (which was the case yesterday), I was able to get some photos.
It was only supposed to be cloudy today (at least according to the weather report I saw). However, I (correctly) suspected we would get rain so I squeezed in a short walk before going into the office this morning.
It was dark and gloomy out, something that always makes it difficult to get high-quality photos. But, I did manage to get a few.
For the first time this year, I could go for my lunchtime walk without needing a jacket. And, I wasn't the only one who was enjoying the warm weather. There were plenty of critters coming out of hiding today, including a ton of turtles (which is why there are a lot of them in the photos).
It's still kind of wet out but I decided to squeeze in a walk before going to the office this morning. Because of the humidity, I had to contend with my camera lens fogging up. But, I did manage to get some photos of the numerous spider webs around the park.
