Pond Walks with Kids

We've done a few recent  walks at several local ponds this week.  Aside from worrying who was too close to the water or if some giant snake was going to jump out of nowhere and snatch one of us (a completely unrealistic fear I realize and I do try to keep it hidden from my kids) the walks were amazing.  See for yourself...here are some of our pictures.

That looks like a fascinating walk and lovely photos. I'm intrigued by the beetle and the buttonbush. What a nice find.
