Day 248

Today, we went to the nature preserve on Chincoteague Island. Instead of the beach part, we walked on one of the nature trails through the marsh.

Wild hibiscus

There were many butterflies fluttering around on the flowers and across the path.


If you look closely, you can see a resident.


This crane was hiding in the tall grass along a marsh water.

This deer was alone on the marsh eating grass and flowers.


Grasshopper
The marsh was teeming with them.


I love the spots on the back of this butterfly. Reminds me of a monster drawing.


Cattails
The white ones are about to drop their seeds. The brown ones are what most of them look like.
