Pictures taken on walks from our house
Olbrich Botanical Gardens (1.5 miles from home)
(admission is free)
Thai Pavillion, a gift from Thailand to the University of Wisconsin. They
didn't have room for it so Olbrich took it. There's also a great view
of it from the bike path.
Edna Taylor Conservation Park and Aldo Leopold Nature Center (Adjacent)
~2 miles from home.
It was a great day for frogs. I didn't realize the tadpoles got so
big before becoming frogs. They appeared to be in transition at this

looks more like a tadpole. At bottom right it looks more like
a frog. We must have seen a hundred frogs!
This one seems to be in transition. It has legs and a tail. Of

A walk in Monona (about 5 miles total)
a bears fan! I don't care who they root for in the privacy of their

wow, a big (sea?) turtle at Schluter park (by the Bait & Ice Cream shop).
It was either burying its eggs (?) or getting ready to lay them (?).
Okay, once again, I have no idea. But after it did this, it scampered
back into the lake faster than I've ever seen a turtle go. I'd like
to see it race a rabbit. It was about a foot long!
