Nature is all around us all we have to do is look in our back yards. The Washington Metropolitan Area has many best kept secrets and two of the best kept secrets and two of them are the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens and Huntley Gardens.
When you want to escape and venture into another world, these parks provide that and more. Every time I visit I always find something spectacular and exciting. From the people, to the foliage to the capturing nature at it's finest.
Recently, I photographed a Osprey, Downy Woodpecker, Great Heron and a Yellow Crowned Night Heron (this bird is very rare because it only comes out at night)and two snakes mating.
I was very happy when a Park Ranger asked if the could use some of my photos on their website. It's great when you support nature.
