The swamp area is on both sides of the road....take over two steps to either side and you are in the swamp. This is one of my favorite places to go. It is so quiet since we are down in a valley. About the only thing we hear are nature sounds.
We were at the swamp area for a few minutes today...it is always the first place I notice leaves turning. A few of the trees were beginning to turn, but for some reason I can never get a good photo of them.
I had totally forgot I had tried taking this with my phone till I saw another's shot of a pollinator hard at work. I was surprised that this turned out so good. To bad my cone flower is so damaged. I am not sure what eats them.
