Off the Path


Yesterday, as I was walking around the pond, I wandered off onto an unpaved path.
Even when I couldn't spot any other people, I kept along the path and ended up beside a smaller, marshy pond.
There I spotted a beautiful swan sitting on her nest!
After watching her for a while, another swan came to visit (perhaps to relieve her?)
And another visitor, a blue heron, landed near by.
Some geese and ducks, started chattering...and the heron flew off. 
It was a lovely afternoon at the pond!






and
 then, she {snapped}

I want to come walking at the pond with you! Lovely wildlife. And what really catches my eye are the puffs of color and texture in the clumps of tall grasses.
