A couple weeks ago my family took a trip to the Beavercreek wetlands and I had a great time photographing everything from board walks to cattails to jumping boys. We visited both Siebenthaler fen and the Koogler wetlands and had perfect weather both days. Both parks have nice boardwalks that form a loop trail that takes about half an hour to 45 minutes to walk. If you are ever in Beavercreek, Ohio and have some time it is well worth a stop.
It was an especially nice time of year for me to go because there were a million dried pods to photograph. It was a bit windy the day I took the two photos below and I had to snap quite a few pictures in the hopes that one would be in focus. Lucky for me the wind gave me a break (which is more than I can say for two little boys!).
When I noticed this smiley face head (below) on an antenna in the parking lot I snapped a quick photo not thinking too much about it. But when I saw the similarity between this photo and the photo of the dried gall pod (second photo down in this blog), it made me laugh. I love when fun, weird things like that happen...it made me feel lucky and charmed all day!
