Some critter got run over in front of our driveway and the turkey vultures showed up to clean up the remains.

Pictures while sitting in a tree

Last Saturday was the opening weekend of rifle deer season.  My husband goes every year and thankfully filled his two tags on the first day.  However, while waiting for the deer to make their appearance he took a couple of pictures.

Babies

Saturday morning we had baby turkeys pass through our yard.  Of course, being the 4th of July, someone set off a loud firework, causing a big boom and scaring off the turkeys.  I had just enough time to snap two pictures.

New Visitor

The weather this last week ha been really nasty. As a result, the bird feeder was very, very busy. Of all of the birdies, we got a single red winged black bird that came to feed. Beautiful bird.

Gray Tufted Titmouse

This picture is somewhat blurry because this little bird is fast. How fast was it? It was so fast I didn’t think I got its picture taken. It was a very cold day and it was a frenzy of activity at the bird feeder.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
