In July, there is an amazing variety of life in the area of the railway tracks at Rouge Park.
I will identify them at the end of the post.
There are thousands of Gypsy Moths in the woods and at the edge of the woods.
Gray and black combination identifies Turkey Vulture.
Pulled in neck identifies Great Blue Heron
Oh, summer has clothed the Earth
In a cloak from the loom of the Sun!
And a mantle, too, of the skies’ soft blue,
And a belt where the rivers run. – Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872–1906)
Love the rail bed & photos.
RE the verse to-day, do you think maybe clock,…. should be cloak??????????
Such beautiful things to be seen and photographed here. I love it!
And yes, I got the “mystery bird”!
The Gypsy Moth is going to re-named, apparently.
This is a wonderful place! And those Bee-balms–among all the other marvelous, beautiful things–such incredible colour!
