Due to the Covid-19 “pandemic” and things like “stay-at-home” rules I did not get out much until very recently this year. My day job is one of those “essential services” that were given the exception to the rule.
While the good news was that I did not have to hunker-down and stay at home, the bad news was that my day job kept me working ten hours a day, mostly six days a week since February.
We have had a little free time recently, so, my wife and I headed to Inniswood Metro Gardens in Columbus, Ohio. We enjoyed taking pictures of early fall blossoms and monarch butterflies.
Last weekend my wife and I went to Blendon Woods Metro Park to take some waterfowl shots. We arrived a little later than I would have liked, but we did get a few decent shots of Canadian geese.
Today, we returned to photograph the wild turkeys that we did not see last weekend.
We found wild turkeys on our way to the parking area at the Nature Center. The place was empty at that time. Before we left the parking lot was filling up. That’s surprising for a Monday morning.
We have still not had the chance to capture images of whitetail deer, but, that’s okay. It gives us another excuse to get out in the near future. The rut begins in the middle of November and I hope to visit a time or two before snow flies.
