Fui com a minha familia visitar uma area natural quase 1 hora da minha casa, um parque estadual , muito bonito. Essa area e predominada por arvore de pinha. Com lagos e muitos animais selvagens. Pica- pau, esquilos, jacare, cobras... Tirei algumas fotos.
We enjoy walking and taking nature pictures ,unfortunately the nature center was close when we visited.
The park is located in the southern pine belt, so the predominant trees in the park are pines( loblolly pine) the trees are majestic and add so much beauty to the park. But among the pines there are sweergum, sassafras, red maple, oaks and dogwood.
A unknown berry to me
A bracket fungus, common form of Polyporus found on dead wood.
