Collins Hill Park

I totally forgot about my day spent at Collins Hill Park a few weekends ago. This is where I encountered my little mantis and ladybug friends. The park is enormous and it took us two hours to walk the perimeter. There’s a beautiful lake whose reflections I’ve featured on the blog before.

Here are a few more shots of the lovely park. I bet it’s beautiful in the  spring and summer!


Look up!


A little camera toss fun!

This is pushing the limits of my little cheap $150 telephoto and my skills. :) He was so far away!


It’s as if fall forgot to pass on from the park landscape.


Such a lovely pair of ducks. The low angle of the light allowed me to shoot them as if they were swimming on a black lake. I like the contrast.


Beautiful homes on the opposite shore of the lake. A bit too close to each other but lake real estate is scarce!

    Looks like you caught a little lady bluebird there! Come by my place for coffee sometime on the weekend after a cold night. We’ve been getting a ton of birds at our feeders. Bet you could get some extra close shots.

      That sounds great Val! With daylight lasting past 5:45 lately, I think that’d be a wonderful idea. :)
