Addicted to the click.

Picture of "Prickly" Beauty.

Chasing an Eagle in the rain.
What does a woodpecker do with
an acorn ? I don't think it can
swallow the acorn. So the woodpecker
puts the acorn in a hole or crack in
a dead tree. Go figure.

This is a Red Headed Woodpecker.
Imagine that.

Two male Red Headed Woodpeckers.
They are sculpting this tree.
This is not a Red Headed Wood Pecker.
It is a Red bellied Wood Pecker.
Say what ??

Any of several bulbous plants of the genus
Hippeastrum. Also called "Belladonna Lilly",
or naked lady.

I don't know about all that termonology,
but they sure are beautiful.
"Happy Spring"

Martin Sillhouetts.

These were taken to show off the
graceful lines of nature.

Most of you know I love silhouetts.
Above is a Great Blue Heron.
Below is a Cormmorant.
Above and below Cormorants,
sometimes called water turkeys,
or snake birds because of their
long necks.
The bird below, I believe is an Eagle.

This above picture, two cormmorant
gather to spot fish. This particular tree
is usualy covered with commorants at
certain times of the day however
not this day. Ugly as they are they
do make a graceful silhouette.

New Birth, Spring.

I've made a few new discoveries at
Martins farm. It is not a real farm but
I call it that for lack of a better term. It
is a friends privet owned 400 acres of
wild life of all kinds. It is all new to me so I
am seeing new things all the time. It is
quite an experience trying to get pictures.
But a great experience to sum it up.
Above and below, Two owls, way up in the
nose bleed section of a tree. One of them
doesn't mind sticking it's head up, the other
just sort of lays there, unfazed by my truck
and camera. I will try to monitor them from
time to time so as not to disturb the parents.
Below is an "Ibis". Shows what I know, I thought
it was a Stork of some kind.
Below is my favorite, Malard ducklings.
The mother was right there with them
protecting them.

There are many preditators around these
little fellows. Osprey, hawks, buzzards,
a pair of eagles, and aligators. I hope they
all survive.

A "Persons" best friend's.

Above and below, I took this picture through
the windshield of the car. It was quite chilly,
and this fellow was trying to get comfortable
as well as warm.
Below is Mia, Mia is my cousin Catherine
who lives in Atlanta, baby. 
Below is Atina. Atina and Mia are cousins,
they play very well together. When Atina 
plays; stand back.. 

Below is Savannah. My sister's who lives in
Brookfield Wisconsin. They like to walk 

Below is Roxie. A well cared for Bassett
Hound that is loved by my grandson Henry.  

Below you see Roxie in her heated
apartment. The temperature is
monitored from inside her caregivers
home. A dogs life isn't so bad.
