Labor Day

To "celebrate" Labor Day, Russ and I went with my parents out to a park to have a picnic and nature walk. Fun times! Here are some pictures from our adventure.

If you look closely, there are minnows in the water in this picture.

I thought this tree was very interesting. The water has completely washed away the dirt from around the roots, but it's still standing and growing strong.

Does anyone know what kind of fowl this feather came from? Dad didn't know, but he kept it because it was unique.

Do you see the snake with the fish in it's mouth? We watched this snake swallow that fish whole. When the fish was completely swallowed, it was still flipping inside the snake! The grossest and most intersting thing I have seen in a long time. The Discovery channel doesn't do this process justice.

I would like to take a photography course. I feel like I don't capture the pictures the way I want. Oh well, that's probably not going to happen!

Stay Cool Blogger Buddies!

Your pictures are amazing! That snake and fish thing was so cool. I can't believe you were so close to a snake. Scary.

I wasn't very close to the snake that was eating the fish. We were on a bridge and I had zoomed all the way in with my camera and then cropped the picture on my computer when I got home. I was close to the other snake, but it was a baby. Very small.

Hey Lisa,

That looks to be like a turkey feather.

You're pictures are great. I like to decorate with pictures I take even though I have no idea what I'm doing. You could definetly frame some of these!

You're crazy for being close to that snake...I don't care if it was a baby! I'm scared just thinking about it!
