Visiting the Walter C. Best Wildlife Preserve

We visited the Walter C. Best Wildlife Preserve in Munson Township, Ohio, which is located just a little over a mile from the Chardon town square. The preserve is part of the Geauga Park District.  The water in the pond was so clear that it was easy to spot the fish.  Here are a few photos.

We were out this weekend driving a hilly stretch of road in Ashland County, Ohio and I thought it would make for an interesting time lapse video. Enjoy!

Lightning!

Every now and then a storm comes through in the early hours of the morning when it’s still very dark and when the lightning is very active. Perfect conditions for lightning photos!   A storm moved in off Lake Erie this morning and while most people were sleeping, I was taking photos. (Don’t worry, I never stand outside or in the open to get lightning photos.)  I took about 300 photos, and here are the best of the bunch.

Dandelion Seed Head Close Up

Some people get annoyed when they see dandelions in their yard. But one has to admit that when it gets its seed head,  it looks rather pretty close up.
