Today I went to Lake Logan State Park (http://parks.ohiodnr.gov/lakelogan) which is about 30 minutes from Athens. It was very quiet with only a few people fishing and no other photographers. It was also very cloudy and gloomy; not the best day to take photographs. When I first arrived, there did not appear to be very much wildlife but I was able to capture a few shots of a green heron, wood ducks, a kingfisher, and mallards. The hibiscus and water lilies were in full bloom.
Last summer, there were many more egrets, herons, and ducks visible. This summer the animals are not in the water in large numbers and the water is very murky.
Photos today at Lake Logan. Enjoy!
