Tryon creek state park.

Today we went to Tryon creek state park to look at trillium's.


Some red flowering currents.

An owl box for northern saw-whet owls.

A trillium.

More trillium's.

What are these?

A female hairy woodpecker!



It sure is trillium season!








Thought this would be a pretty picture.

A huge slug.

Hi Conner: Love all the flower photos this time! Have you seen this blog: http://birdlovers101.blogspot.com/
I think you might enjoy it.

Also, have you heard about Audubon's Birdathon? I signed up to be on Laura's halfday trip and thought you might want to check it out. It's at Oaks Bottom on May 3. This is a great fundraiser to participate in.

Hey Conner...yet another lovely post! Thanks.

Oh, and I remember those slugs when I was a kid in California; we called them Banana slugs:

The yellow flower is a yellow wood violet, at least here in South Dakota! Great photos!
