Peace Valley Park, No. 8, A Hike

Yesterday, I went hiking at Peace Valley Park located near Doylestown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It was late morning when I went which is frequently a bad time for photography. So I'm not quite as pleased with my photos. But it was a good hike with some great sightings.


A Great Blue Heron Taking Flight



A Great Blue Heron Stalking Its Prey



I think this is a hawk; but I wasn't able to identify it.



A Turtle on a Waterlily



A Wildflower Growing Next to the Nature Center



I think this is a garter snaker.

Hi, ocean. It is a neat area for hiking and it was a good day.

Hi, abandoned in pasadena. I was happy with my sightings just not as happy with the quality of some of my photos. Glad you enjoyed the pictures I posted.

Hi, andrea. Isn't it though? I recently visited your page and couldn't leave any comments as the comment field was missing.

Thanks, ava. Glad you enjoyed it.

Thanks, golden pole. It's neat to share pictures of the beauty of creation and I'm glad you enjoy it. And, no, I am not a professional photographer, just an amateur one.
