The Little Things

August 17, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

No matter where you go there is something to be enjoyed, to be appreciated, to be photographed. Sometimes, it's a grand view that opens up in front of us, other times, it's a tiny detail. And in today's post, I am sharing photos of the little things that are often overlooked at our feet.

The first photo was waiting for me at the end of a hike in Letchworth State Park. While the park is most known for its wonderful waterfalls on the Genesee River there are many hiking trails that get you off-the-beaten-path. And this was one of them. It's actually so charming that this was not our first time circling the lovely bogs. Trails 2A and 3 form a very nice loop that shows you the park in a way you've probably not seen before. So next time you find yourself in the park, look at the trail map and head for the unknown.

The next three photos are from a different place and hike. This time, we were exploring the Swallow Hollow Nature Trail located by the Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge.You have seen a dandelion before. Or have you?

And it's not just the tiny flowers and other plants that we often overlook. There are a lot of tiny living creatures that we either ignore, or that annoy us. But look closer!

And then there are tiny creatures that continue to amaze me at a whole other level. The whole concept of metamorphosis is just mind boggling. Living part of their life in one form, and finishing up in another.
