So, it was a nice walk, Ray Lake was, quiet and peaceful.
Towards the end, we started seeing more folks walking around, younger kids and people with dogs.
Despite this, I managed to get shots of two new butterflies, as well as all the birds.
The first was the red-spotted purple (feature photo), that flew around and landed right in front of us, slowly flapping and turning as it sampled the roadway gravel.
(There must be some mineral in the surfacing gravel of the trails that they like – we keep seeing them landing and probing the little rocks.)
I’ll finish up our little tour with a couple of scenery shots that didn’t fit in either of the other posts.
So that was Ray Lake, a little hidden gem for the summertime and a quiet walk on an overcast day!
