Milbrook Marsh Nature Center

A few weeks ago I stopped at the local nature center. I had never been to this place so decided to check it out. It had just rained and looked like it could again so I hurriedly took a short walk.

 I found pretty flowers.

Update ~ this may be pretty but it is poisonous too, its called deadly nightshade.

 pretty berries dripping with water ~ anyone know what these are please?

 I like how the boardwalk snaked through the trees.

 I found lots of water droplets.

 more crooky boardwalks.

I found a daddy long leg spider.

lots of  water puddles.

 I found ivy on the trees

and snails too. 

All in all it was an enjoyable walk. I will go back when I can take my time.

Felicia, I think those berries look like Highbush Cranberry (and the dark blue flowers are Deadly Nightshade, the 'ivy' is Virginia Creeper -turns bright red). I love the pix of the boardwalk through the woods.
These are so beautiful! One photo is more beautiful than the next.

Lovely captures Felicia. I especially love the water-drops on those pretty berries.

Felicia,
The fruit look like Viburnum, Most likely Viburnum americanum, American cranberry. Great shots. Tom The Backroads Traveller

Love the walkway! I agree that the berries are highbush cranberries. The purple flowers are often called deadly nightshade here in Canada but they are not to be confused with the true deadly nightshade. These flowers are actually Bittersweet nightshade, :)

Hi Felicia! I was visiting Debby Ray's blog when I saw your pretty icon so I decided to come for a visit :)

I had a delightful time scrolling through your photos - you are very talented! And these pictures with the water drops are simply beautiful.

I am a new follower and am looking forward to seeing more of your lovely photos.

Lovely photos.. we used to have a problem with nightshade at my home where I grew up. Hard to get rid of.. Love the great macro on the harvestman.
Harvestmen, also called Daddy Longlegs, are not spiders, but they are close relatives.

Lovely, lovely images! This is the woods you was telling me about with the wonderful boardwalk! Love that! I have seen these berries but don't know what they are and water drops are my favorite thing to capture when I can! Great photos!

Valerie said…
Wonderful macros shots and I do like that timber walkway through the woods.
Linda said…
Fine set of photos! Funny how nice the puddles look.
Donna said…
I agree the berries look like a cranberry viburnum...and the nightshade flowers are similar to many nightshade veggies like tomatoes, potatoes and eggplant.

A beautiful spot to explore.

That is such a sweet macro serie... I'm in love with the first one ; I tried to take picture of this particular purple/violet flower, but it is quite hard to capture the essence of the color without fading its environment... Magnificent job indeed.

Looks so lush there! You've sure gotten a lot of rain!
