Here’s some images I took while I was hiking along Big Darby Creek last month.  Walking along a river is a pleasant experience- there is a lot going on along its banks.  Every once in a while, it’s a worthwhile habit to stand still in an interesting area and look closely at what’s going on around you.  You start noticing things that you never would have noticed otherwise.  Here’s some of the things I saw, starting out with ‘the big picture’ and focusing down to individual events and creatures of interest.  Keep an eye out for Lizard’s Tail aquatic plants, a Green Heron, Damselflies, Water Beetles, Water Striders and a Question Mark Butterfly.  Also a Cottonwood Tree leaf- these seem to be unseasonably yellow fairly often.
