This photo is of a wooded area on the pathway between Mike Lewis and C.P. Waggonner parks in Grand Prairie, Texas. As I was walking along the path I was taken with the sunlight filtering through the trees illuminating the deep green natural grass.
The John F. Burke Nature Preserve is a small (104 acres, most of which is open grassland) natural area along the Elm Fork of the Trinity River. The preserve has a considerable amount of wildlife for being located in the middle of an urban area. I have seen various waterfowl along with egrets, raccoons running through the woods and an abundance of forest birds. I will be posting more photos of my visits in the near future
