Horicon Marsh, Waupun

Horicon Marsh Wildlife Area, Waupun, WI

Last Saturday, we took some time to visit a favorite spot of mine, the Horicon Marsh near Waupun. It was a nice day except for the mosquitoes. I was on the lookout for birds, and this trip did not disappoint. This location has a nice boardwalk where you can walk out over the marsh and observe the wildlife. We saw a variety of birds, a few turtles, and a water rodent (probably a muskrat, but it was too far away to really tell).

The beginning or end of the boardwalk, depending on where you start…

It’s so adorable!

Foster's Tern Horicon Marsh

This Foster’s Tern is chilling out here, but when they spot something to eat, they nose dive into the water.

At this point we were off of the boardwalk…and then there were geese. Lots of geese. The parents were pretty wary of us and there was some hissing, but we made it through the crowd without any issues.

All those babies!

Gone, but not forgotten?

It’s been a while. I don’t even want to look to see how long.

I could go on about where I’ve been and what things I’ve been doing, but I’ll just say this: sometimes I have a hard time focusing on more than one thing. We can talk about that another time, though.

Today, I just wanted to share some edits of photos I’ve taken over the summer and this fall.

Dandelion Edits Collage

The dandelion picture edits were a result of trying to get the picture light enough to print onto an old book page. I liked the result, but I’d like to find an old dictionary to print picutres on. I’m kicking myself now because I just dropped off a box of books at Goodwill, which included a dictionary.

This was taken at Horicon Marsh, near Waupun, WI. It was a cold day. We were rained on, it was a bit windy, but I got some awesome pictures.

This one is from Kohler-Andrae State Park. It’s not vastly different than the original, but I like the simplicity of the photo.

Here are the originals.

That’s it for today. Hopefully it won’t be so long between posts again!
