Nature Walks and The Beautiful Outdoors photos 🌿🌷🏞

I love going on walks and if I'm lucky taking a few photos while I'm lost in nature. 🏞🌎🌺  Does anyone else enjoy that?

 

These are some of the views from a little walk today.

Spoiler
It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining but the breeze was cool. Everything smelt so fresh and we saw a few animals too. 😀

Feel free to share any photos you take out waking in the beautiful fresh air and sun shine 💚💙

 

I'd love to see what nature you see 👀 😀

Wild Swans are a rare sight here, we've got 2 families of them around that marsh I've been lucky enough to see. We had gotten a few Egret's last year ( It was first time I ever saw those wild) but none this year that I've been able to spot. @jaaayp

@CynthieLu  Great egrets migrate here in the fall and stay for the winter.  They are soo elegant; smooth feathers on their bodies and a fringe of feathers hanging off of them like a fur coat.

 

Occasionally I see blue herons in our marshes also.  Only when I'm driving though! 

 

I don't think we have swans though!

Re: Nature Walks and The Beautiful Outdoors photos 🌿🌷🏞

Egrets are soo elegant, I totally see that too @Ispend2much6 . When they are in mating season the males get these pretty feather plumes. I hope they come visit us again some day 🙂

We have greater and lesser blue herons here, they don't enjoy people too much but are a beauty to see.

@CynthieLu Such a cute little fam jam on the water. 

Re: Nature Walks and The Beautiful Outdoors photos 🌿🌷🏞

I knoooo 😍 they were super cute and a rare sight too @JoSometimes I tried to get the picture quickly because they were leaving fast. 

Re: Nature Walks and The Beautiful Outdoors photos 🌿🌷🏞

@CynthieLu beautiful 

Re: Nature Walks and The Beautiful Outdoors photos 🌿🌷🏞

They really are a sight @CorgiMommy 🩵💫🩵

We went paddle boarding today and hung out near the lily pads.  We were searching for turtles but gave up before finding success.  next time:)

Re: Nature Walks and The Beautiful Outdoors photos 🌿🌷🏞

That lily is such a pure shade of white!  I hope you find turtles for your little guy next time. @heartsmyface 

Re: Nature Walks and The Beautiful Outdoors photos 🌿🌷🏞

Wow, it's perfect @heartsmyface 🥰

Re: Nature Walks and The Beautiful Outdoors photos 🌿🌷🏞

@heartsmyface Turtles would have been cool but that’s a very pretty consolation prize!

Re: Nature Walks and The Beautiful Outdoors photos 🌿🌷🏞

That must have been so serene @heartsmyface, and you got a picture of a perfect Lilly. My phone would have drowned if I was trying to padle board and be responsible for my belongings 😆

🐢 Our turtles here have gone back into hiding after nesting, I hope you guys get to see some this year!

Re: Nature Walks and The Beautiful Outdoors photos 🌿🌷🏞

@CynthieLu  ha, the phone is waterproof.  I just wear it on a floaty lanyard when it’s out and tuck it away in my waterproof waist pouch (with the snacks and sunscreen) when it’s not needed.  
ours normally stick around all summer lounging in the sun on fallen trees.  There’s an area that’s hard to get to that they like a lot for nesting.  We get to see them from 50 feet away.  But sometimes we come across rogue turtles out in the water.  just seeing them makes my day even though I know they’re going to be there.  We didn’t make it that far out today though. 

Re: Nature Walks and The Beautiful Outdoors photos 🌿🌷🏞

That's cool! @heartsmyface 

There are many lakes and paths near me. But the turtles are soo shy. If we come across them they jump into the water and flee 🫣 

Re: Nature Walks and The Beautiful Outdoors photos 🌿🌷🏞

@CynthieLu  aw ours jump in too if they think we’ve come too close.  They’re fairly brave though and will sometimes pose for the camera (more like stick their necks out to better bask in the sun but I’m writing the narrative here) 

Re: Nature Walks and The Beautiful Outdoors photos 🌿🌷🏞

@heartsmyface beautiful 

Re: Nature Walks and The Beautiful Outdoors photos 🌿🌷🏞

 Saw this butterfly on a short walk, I had to try to grab a picture.

 This one didn't want to give me alot of shots. It flew away pretty quickly but it was fun too see this big guy up close. 🧡🖤

Re: Nature Walks and The Beautiful Outdoors photos 🌿🌷🏞

@CynthieLu  For some reason, my son has a talent for getting butterflies to land on his finger.  They like it so much he can actually walk with it remaining on him.  I've never seen anyone else able to do that.   He started doing that as a child, and still can today.

 

The only thing I can figure out is, he stays still if he sees one nearby, raises his arm and crooks his pointer finger in the air and raises it so it's the highest point of his body.  And the butterflies just land on him!

 

Re: Nature Walks and The Beautiful Outdoors photos 🌿🌷🏞

So.... when is your nature album getting published? @CynthieLu 🤣

Re: Nature Walks and The Beautiful Outdoors photos 🌿🌷🏞

Wow @CynthieLu! That’s a great looking specimen. The colouration is so bright!

Re: Nature Walks and The Beautiful Outdoors photos 🌿🌷🏞

I'm glad you can see it @JoSometimes the way it's hanging we're only seeing the under side of the wings, and they aren't as bright and brilliant. It was a real pretty one 🙂
