Yesterday morning I decided to grab my camera, ditch the outdoor chores, and head to the Wilderness Park here in Prattville, Alabama. I'm so glad I did! Although I wore flip flops, which was a poor choice for a roughly 1/2 mile hike, it was not that bad because I was constantly pausing to take pictures. It was nice to get away from the routine for a while.
If you look to the left of the path, you will see a pond filled with downed bamboo and other trees, and a great many lily pads and lilies. The water was still, and the sun was at a height to make great reflections in the water. I heard deep-throated frogs calling, but never had the luck to see one. But I did get a shot of a turtle resting on one of the lily pads.
