I've mentioned that on my birthday, my mom and I rode bikes on the Greenline. The Greenline crosses over the Wolf River, and there's a swampy area just before it (on the Shelby Farms side) where I'd seen flocks of ducks before. So we stopped and spent a few minutes dashing from one side of the bridge to another, exclaiming about the wildlife.
According to my research, these turtles are red-eared sliders.
I spotted this guy sunning!
The Greenline in general is full of butterflies. I think these are actually moths, but they're still pretty all in a row. We also saw plenty of huge catfish, but they didn't stay at the surface long enough for photos.
If you have kids, it's worth taking them to this bridge to see a lot of nature in one place!
