Dragonflies and other creatures

This afternoon we headed down to Lake Storey in Galesburg, IL to chill out and get some sun. While the kid's were splashing about in the lake and Kimberly was soaking up rays, I went on an hour long nature ramble along the lakeside. I saw lots of cool stuff – herons, turtles, frogs, dragonflies, woodpeckers, and more.

I've put a bunch of photos up in a Facebook album – you can get to them here (no login required). Here a three examples for you.

   

Enjoy!

PS Should mention – camera is a Panasonic DMC-TZ5 with a LEICA 10x optical zoom. Which I'd had one our 20Ds with the 300IS lens…

One thought on “Dragonflies and other creatures

  1. Paul,

    Great pictures!

    Isn’t Galesburg where poet / author Carl Sandburg was born? I seem to remember this tidbit having grown up in Illinois, but never have visited the town. I think his boyhood home is still there.

    I have visited his home / farm / estate in Flat Rock, NC called Connemara. It’s a pretty neat place. His wife raised goats there.

    Enjoy your stay!

    Scott R.
