Set 3 - Some wildlife
These pictures were taken during our walking around the forest in the morning. Initially, it seemed that the forest was devoid of many birds, but, a keen look around and a lot of patience paid off and soon there were a lot of signs of life all around us. The deer density was pretty high, specially the white-tailed ones.
Here are some of the birds.
A Red Robin
Yet to find out this ones name
2 woodpeckers playing hide-n-seek. It was fascinating to watch them play and fly from one tree to another, as I tip-toed after them.
The playful squirrel
..About to take the jump. I had to react very fast and unfortunately could not get the full length of the squirrel
A mother and her fawn
A Tulip-tree - do not confuse this with the tulip flower
The trusted companion
Next set will reveal one of the best waterfalls that I have ever seen in my life. The state park was named after this waterfall and it was an out of the world experience. For a few hours, I was in heaven.

Set 4 - Waterfall
As mentioned in my previous post, this set of pics have one of the best waterfalls that I have come across.
A brief description
The actual one
There is a hike route all the way to the base of the Falls. There was a short spell of shower and the trail was extremely slippery and dangerous. Its almost a descent of around 270ft.
The trail route
The trail ends here..but not for us
Behind the Falls
Some random shot of a bunch of wild blueberries
Still to come, some more wildlife in action!!

Set 5 - more wildlife
It looks like there is not much interest in this thread, based on the lack of comments. However, since I have started it, I will finish this with the rest of the pictures.
The return journey
The next post will be the last post in this series.

Very nice set of pics. I must say you are maturing as a photographer by each trip. The picture of those two buds is almost surrealistic. One other point I think I should make here - absence of comments doesn't necessarily mean absence of interest. You can check the interest level from the number of views, which in your case is pretty high. Keep it up.

Thanks Null and Suidpto-da. I get your point, but these threads need some encouragement to carry on.
Have done one more trip a couple of weeks back. This was in another forest in Kentucky. Encountered a herd of almost 100 Elks. Will post the pics of it in another thread.
