Walk about

Since rain is in the forecast for tonight
I went walking this afternoon.

I took my camera.



I was looking for tulips.


The walking trail my husband and I walk on in the evenings is in a small city park. Near the trail there are tulips.



The park is in a residential area.

One of the neighbor's has chickens and a pair of turkeys.



I have been wanting to take a few chicken portraits.

The birds are curious.


A Blue Heron flew over as I was walking.
I wondered where she went.
I stopped at the woods near by on the way home.

She was not at Little Pond.

I like the idea of taking the camera for a walk. But maybe the camera can also be taking you for a walk. :)

Dear Bernie,
My camera loves to go out! I do like the idea of HER taking ME for a walk! She does seem to know where she wants to go! If I don't get her out a few times a week I can hear her sighing...
Looking forward to your Walk About!
The Pacific Crest Trail will be amazing!
