There are a lot of trails in the forest preserves near us. Last week I tried a new trail near hidden lake.
After my walk I sat in the car and ate some lunch watching the deer grazing nearby. Behind the grasses on the left-hand side is a lake hidden by tall rushes.
Walking around the lake I took a picture of some distant ducks. On the screen now I think these are wood ducks, that I have only seen on TV. Sorry the picture is so small.
Walking through the fall colors with my jacket and gloves on a beautiful day made me really happy.
The path led me by this small lake. Quite a few birds were rustling around the shore.
With some effort I managed to get this bird picture near the lake. Is it a swamp sparrow?
I saw this deer along the trail. We looked at each other for about a minute, while I took various pictures.
The trail is near some horse stables. This was the only horse I saw that day.
Hope you have been able to enjoy some fall colors these days!
