Lake Nature Walk

Today I did my nature walk at Schlegel Lake in Washington Township, NJ. I go running around this lake all the time so I have grown almost used to the scenery and rarely ever embrace it. So, today I set out to change that. I went around the lake and tried to investigate all of the plant life around it. The weather was about 75º F and it was very sunny. I was really looking for some colorful plants but actually couldn't find any that were there naturally. So, there's a lot of green in today's observations. I also included a picture of a deer I saw walking around just to show some of the other life around that probably utilizes these plants often. I was in a wooded area for about 15 minutes and couldn't find too much plant diversity. On the tail end of my walk around the lake, I actually found what I think is some sort of fern that would fit into the heterospory group. I also found a tree that seemed to be bearing some sort of fruit which I believe is a type of peach.
