A day is not complete for me without a walk in the woods. I almost always carry a camera, because one never knows what might show up. There were several interesting things today.

1. Crownbeard lined the trail

All-in-all, it was a productive day to carry a camera (and two lenses). The Z50 two-lens kit makes a very capable and very light combination.

How blessed you are to be able to walk in the woods every day. Living in a high country desert, woods are not a luxury we have nearby. I so enjoy having virtual walks with you and Beth.

Nicely seen.
I too find it important to keep a camera with me on such journeys. I find it very difficult to take pictures when my camera is at home.

Thanks, Gary.

Thanks for letting me share your walk! #2, 3 and 5 for me!
My pleasure.

Thanks, Terri. As I have said, I often envy your wide-open spaces.

It is curious to see that crayfish out of the water.

The butterfly shots are very nicely done.

Beautiful and very calming Jim. :)
Thanks, Rick.

2 and 4 are my favorites.
Thanks for looking, Allan.

My pleasure. Were you referring to "Crownbeard"?

A walk well walked!
We thought so. Thanks for looking.

Thanks, Nigel. We were surprised to see the crayfish so far from water, too. We had all-day rain the previous day, so that probably had something to do with it. My wife wanted to move it to the nearest streamlet, which was at least 100m away, but I insisted that we should let nature take its course.

They both have a rich mature look to them, although the flowers in #4 are somewhat distracting, may benefit from a tight crop.
