7/16/17 City Forest

Getting warm again so back to the beaver pond at City Forest. We still have Cooper with us ( who is not interested in the water) but Kelley loves the pond. I took only my 100 mm macro lens so could only get a close shot.

I had thought this was yellow crown vetch but learned that it is called Trefoil

Once again I found lots of flowers and insects around the pond. we also walked a short distance on the West Trail. A pleasant little outing.


  1. Nice collection of wildflower pics! And your first image of Kelley swimming made me smile.

    1. Thank you Linda - I'm glad she made you smile - me too
