Picnic, End of Summer

We began a planned walk through the woods towards the boardwalk.

The bright sky darkened. We saw streaks of lightening. Heard thunderclaps.
But we stopped to enjoy a pond covered with lotus blossoms. We've never managed to see the full blossoming before,
though we've been to this park a number of times.

We were soaked in the rain, but stopped at another part of the park in our soggy clothes. The clouds were scuttling
towards the east, the line of storms moving over Lake Erie.

From the lakeshore we could see another wetland full of lotus blossoms. 
An osprey wearing a red leg ring landed in a tree as
we were heading back to the car to return home.

What a serene setting. I love the weather pictures. And the bird photos. And the lillies......
