I visited Tophet Swamp Conservation Area in Lexington, since it's right off the Minuteman bikeway, and I try to be on the lookout for other good birding spots.
It wasn't very birdy; I walked for quite a long way near the highway, and was annoyed by the traffic noise.
I was photographing young leaves in the second week of May, last year. We're not quite at that point this year, but I was fascinated by these maple wings.
I haven't tampered with the colors.
