I love my nature walks, and this afternoon at the Mountain Park Aquatic Center was a reminder that we don't always need to be forging ahead. Sometimes, we need to look up, down, and around.
The first photograph is one I took on the walking trail. Of course, it's just a small branch with what's left of two little pine cones (after a squirrel had enjoyed the rest)....but doesn't it look a lot like a dragon fly? The other is one of many I took of the same afternoon of a stunning winter sunset.
