*Photo shot while walking around the boardwalk at the wetlands, Vermilion County, Illinois. The sky was especially pretty, with some very cool clouds.
The mission of the Wetlands Program is to promote the protection, management, restoration and creation of wetlands to ensure a high quality of life for present and future generations.
Tim and I enjoy visiting the wetlands almost year-round, and strolling around the boardwalk to catch glimpses and shoot photos of the various plant and wildlife that call this particular area home, at least part of the time. The plant life isn’t in bloom, yet, but the geese are there, as are the red-winged blackbirds and a few other species of bird.*
