Green Heron at Beals Preserve

I took a morning walk at BHCL today.  The sky was the star of the show this morning and the clouds were just beautiful.

 I did see a lot of nice birds, too.   Several tree tops were decorated with Eastern Bluebirds.

In the afternoon, I took a walk at Beals Preserve.  On the way there, I noticed a red fox in someone's front yard, so I stopped and took some photos!  He/she was very itchy!


On to Beals Preserve....I saw a Green Heron and three Eastern Painted Turtles sunning themselves at the Ice Pond.

I walked down to the channel, looking for butterflies as I went.  There was a lot of Joe Pye Weed in bloom but very little flying.  I did see a couple of Common Ringlets, one Common Wood Nymph and two Clouded Sulphurs.
