The wild ponies are the tiny spots in the upper right, far in the distance. This was taken in the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, found on the Virginia side of Assateague Island. (Here’s a list of previous posts from the park.)
The lake, three ways. Here are some images from summer, spring, and winter.
In April, the new grass and cat tails are starting to grow. There’s not much else as far as green stuff to look at. In other years, there might be more spring plant life to see in mid-April, but winter just didn’t want to leave us this year.
I loved seeing these beach grass shoots coming up out of the sand. I don’t know much about beach grass or how it grows, but I’d never seen it this short or young before. I’m guessing this is new growth popping up at springtime and it will continue to get taller until it reaches the heights of the dried stalks in the background. Maybe I’m wrong. Anyway.
There’s something cheerful and optimistic about it.
