Today I decided that I have cooped up for too long. A person only gets so many perfect August afternoons in a lifetime so it would be foolish to waste it. I grabbed my camera and set out on what was supposed to be a short walk. At least that was the plan. once I started walking I started seeing more and more wonderful things so I kept going until I couldn’t. When that happened I sat by the creek and rested in the company of a wonderful green heron. After a while I was ready to walk back to my car.
It was good to be back outside again.

Walking in the woods of Manassas.

I started out planning to tale a short walk, but then I followed a bumblebee and wound up deep in the woods.

A wonderful way to spend the afternoon in Northern Virginia!
