The wife and I decided to take a walk this morning along the Arkansas River Trail. I took the Canon T7 along just to play with and get some field experience taking pictures. We saw 3 Bald Eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) which was neat.
I definitely need to get a telephoto lens and a macro lens for this camera. As we looked out into the river bed, what we saw disgusted us. Discarded tires littered the bed.
Enough with the depressing stuff! I did try to photograph some of the local flowers. You can still find natural beauty if you look.
I am always dragging stuff home much to the wifes dismay. One of these days our house will be full of specimens. We have shelves full of jars, rocks, bones etc.
Yesterday while we were driving along the route we chose, I noticed several Osage Orange/Bois d’Arc trees bearing fruit and commented to the wife that I would like to gather some to plant on our property. As luck would have it…we found some!
We will process these at the beginning of next year and plant them in the spring. We ended the outing by picking up 2 bags of trash and depositing them in the park dumpster. It’s always good for us to get out and stretch our legs and minds and this was no exception. Thank you for reading and have a great day!
