I don’t know about other families, but when we have an open Saturday, we tend to head to a park.
Especially one that has disc golf baskets.
While the Mister and our younger son concentrate on throwing discs, I focus on snapping a few photos of them . . .
. . . along with many more of whatever nature has to offer.
A couple Saturdays ago we visited Timber Lane Park in Spring, Texas, which features a nine-hole, very-wooded disc golf course.
It wasn’t a very big park, but there was enough eye-candy nature to keep me busy.
It doesn’t take a lot of room for wildflowers and flora to grow.
Of course, I wasn’t going to be content to just snap disc golf and plants. I needed to have a “flying” challenge to keep my photographic juices going.
Fortunately, there was a spot that had a different kind of bee than those aggressive honey bees that don’t like me snapping pix of them. That was a welcome change!
Close by was a small damselfly. Those flyers were nice, of course, but you know what kind of winged insect I like best, right?
A dragonfly, of course! This was the only one I saw, and it was nice enough to stop and pose for me.
All in all, it was a wonderful Saturday adventure: The guys enjoyed playing disc golf, while I got my fill of nature, both firmly planted in the ground and usually buzzing around in the air.
