Through My Lens

A Walk Through a New Lake County Forest Preserve ...
Common Buckeye Butterfly

WoollyBear Catapiller

I was taken by the way the trunk of this fallen tree is so twisted.  Can't imagine how that happens.

I live in Lake County where the taxes are exorbitant and it makes me cringe every time I have to pay them.  But when I walk through one of their many beautifully maintained forest preserves, I have the sense that at least some of the money is being used for a good purpose.



  1. We have plenty of wooly bear caterpillars, but the Common Buckeye butterfly is rare.

  2. Loved walking with you. I can see a whole lot worse uses for taxes too. I do see worse uses.
