I am a big nature person; I absolutely like to go on hikes, take my camera as well as photograph pets as well as vegetation.
When my hubby moved us to Orland Park I was sad I would lose my activity! The Orland Grasslands are just beautiful though.
There are tons of footpaths to check out the area. There are so various different types of habitats to photograph there like oak savanna, shrubland, wetland, woodland, open ponds as well as prairie. I have gotten some amazing shots since the weather in my area is undoubtedly diverse. I can get photographs of thick snow as well as ice as well as a few months later get blooming flowers as well as sunshine. There are quite a few pets that I have photographed too. There are nearly 100 pigeon species that have been reported in my area as well as I am making it my mission to photograph as various as possible. There are also adorable butterflies, grasbuyers, dragonflies as well as mammals like coyotes for me to see as well. I am ecstatic as a clam in my area. I get gorgeous photos, good hiking as well as the area is safe as well as quiet, and my hubby as well as I have a nice little beach house surrounded by woods. The cold isn’t bad when you have good heating too. The people I was with and I have heated flooring all throughout the beach house as well as it makes it nice. I can sip hot cocoa while seeing the snowfall as well as know totally comfortable in my home, and life has been good. In the summertime the heat isn’t so bad that I need to crank the cooling system, then just a gentle cool breeze occasionally does it.
