At The Pond By The Trail

At the 1-Mile-Marker of The Colony Shoreline Trail is a pond, where ducks and turtles share the space for relaxing in the sun. It is also a good food source for the ducks, since the pond is not too deep. They can stretch their necks to get some of those kelp-like roots from the pond bottom. And for the turtles it is deep enough for a swim.

Wildlife By The Lake

This is the continuation of yesterday’s blog. Today, I’ll post photos of a mammal, birds and fishes from that nice day in October 2016.

Flutter Wings At The Shoreline Trail

Last week, The Colony Shoreline Trail got closed due to the flood waters of Lewisville Lake. So, it will take a while until I can hike the shores of the lake again. But a couple of years ago, I hiked the trail on a beautiful late October day. In Autumn, a lot of butterflies migrate south to Mexico and Central America. Many come from the northern states of the US and from Canada. In Texas our Prairie still provides plenty of flowers, and therefore the migrating insects and birds can get their fill before they will go on their long trip across the Gulf of Mexico. Here are photos of some beautiful flutter wings:

The Colony Shoreline Trail In September

Hiking the first mile from the North Colony Blvd. entrance at The Colony Shoreline Trail, I was very lucky with viewing some wildlife on that September morning back in 2013.

August Sunset At The Colony Shoreline Trail

One of the most relaxing moments I enjoy is the sunsets at our local lake. These photos were captured in August 2013. In the meantime, I captured many more sunsets (after I learned, how to use the manual settings on my camera 😉 ).
