Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week on Cee’s Photography at http://ceenphotography.com/2014/01/21/cees-fun-foto-challenge-found-in-nature/ is Found in Nature.
Here are a few things that I have found as I walked around Spring Valley Nature Center in Schaumburg.
Of course, there have been times when I’ve walked the length and breadth of Spring Valley and not found a thing or at least nothing much worth photographing. And then there are days when it’s all happening. Finding this family of muskrats was one of those days.
I was sorry to come across these tent caterpillars as they can cause a lot of damage to tree foliage when found in large numbers.
This delicate Autumn Meadowhawk dragonfly was a more welcome sight.
An interesting find was this piece of tree trunk ‘art’.
A busy little chipmunk found foraging for food.
