I made a trip to the J. Arthur Fen Nature Preserve. A Fen is similar to a bog but has a stream running through the area. The road to the fen isn't great and it is a little hard to find but worth the trip. WARNING - Wear protective clothing and spray with Deet. I picked up two ticks and had several attacks by mosquitoes.
You walk down a grass road, past a meadow and then come out into the fen and onto a boardwalk.
This Red Winged Blackbird was a little way out by the stream but I loved the display it made with its shoulder applets.
There were a lot of Dragonflies in the area and this male Common White Dragonfly showed his stuff..
As I went into a wooded part of the boardwalk a little Red Squirrel decided to visit. I think he is beautiful with great markings, I love the black belly stripe.
This was a neat place to visit and was only 10 minutes from Kent.
