I’ve been looking at this one on my wall all week, and I love it so much. At first glance it could be an abstract of colors, maybe a close-up of a rock, and then it adjusts in my mind to a horse eye looking back at me.

At the nature park

We’re having those close-out-summer-sale in the weather (spectacular days contrasted against regular walk-on-by days), so thought we better get down to the park one more time on a spectacular day. Bag up a lunch, grab a light sweater, and of course the camera.

Lovely vistas.

A few blossoms to be seen here and there.

Cattails always seem exotic to me, even though they are all over.

I hadn’t noticed elderberries before, and couldn’t decide whether it was worth the effort of picking them to make jelly. I wonder how many people have elderberry jelly in the pantry anymore? I guess the novelty would make it worth the effort, I know they’re high in something or other that’s good for you.

I snapped these berries because if you look up in the left top corner there are also blossoms. Isn’t it unusual to have berries and blossoms on a plant at the same time? I don’t know what this is.

There are Russian olive trees everywhere, they were planted in the 1930s to help stop soil degradation. Now they just provide way too much pollen. And of course you can’t eat the olives.

I loved the reflection in the water, and how it would make such a pretty abstract painting.

There are streams throughout the naturewalk, and we saw a nutria quickly swimming away underwater. Much too quick to take a photo; I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen one here before.

On the way out we stopped at the McNary Dam lock and viewed the fish ladder. We saw lots of wall-eye salmon and small mouth bass. This photo makes the salmon look like it’s holding still, but it’s really racing by very quickly.

Boy, it sure is nice to be able to hold a day in your hand and appreciate it.

I love this goat painting so much. The color transitions are just right, and I painted the design around the outside edges so it has a little more dimensionality to it.

These horses were at the rodeo. A blue-eyed piebald, how fun! And I love that round butt in the background.
