In the Wild!

Yes, Turkeys in November, Again   On a rainy, dreary day, the turkeys came looking for a bite to eat, that they appear to need. As they wandered around the yard, they lifted my spirits; as nature does. They changed my focus from the overcast skies to the still colored landscape, which they so perfectly…

In the Wild!

Baby Peafowl     It is easy to become jaded in the world today; however there are still those moments that fill us with wonder, if we are willing to run around someone’s else’s neighborhood and try to coax a mom and her baby’s to pose for a picture.     Undoubtedly, babies, whether human,…

In the Wild!

A Doe and Her Two Fawns When you live in the forest, yes, I can hear my neighbor’s shuddering at that description, you expect to see wild life. We have seen quite a bit, though the moose and bear we are waiting for, has so far eluded us; nonetheless, when I looked up, from the…

In the Wild!

The Sandpiper   They are tiny and scurry quickly along the sand, not much interested in posing for a picture or what morsel someone may offer them; I like that about sandpipers, they are not there for our entertainment. Yet, somehow these ubiquitous creatures certainly do manage to still my soul, at least for a…

One of Hemingway’s Cat     We toured Ernest Hemingway’s house, in Key West, Florida, many years ago; not on our first visit to the Keys, in 1991, but on one of many return visits with a little extra money, to cover the price of admission. Not all stops that we make would I recommend,…

Cheese Curls and the Seagulls   We came upon this couple, at Nubble Lighthouse, in York, Maine, and absolutely had to stop to photograph their interaction with the seagulls – yes, I asked if I could photograph, and they kindly said yes.     Apparently, the majestic gull, shares human’s appreciation for the crunchy, cheesy…

Green Iguana’s By now, I should be well used to seeing this lizard, native to Central and South America, some areas of the Caribbean and Mexico, which has so well adapted to South Florida; but he still makes me pause, whenever I see him lying out in the sun, on the seawall. While not necessarily…

In the Wild!

A Frog Taking Refuge Behind the Flag   I opened the garage door, and found this little fellow taking refuge, behind the flag. I know it is silly, but looking at what I could see of his face, I quickly assigned the poor guy human emotions, deciding that he was frightened and shocked, and that…

In the Wild!

Trampling Through the Snow     On a slightly solemn day I spotted these horses, and I could not help but pull over, to take a closer look, at these majestic animals, standing in a snow covered field.     They too seemed interested in a visit. Perhaps, they thought I might have a treat…

In the Wild!

So High Above     Driving through the Grand Tetons, looking out at the Snake River, I spotted this nest, sitting on top of an electric pole. The romantic in me would like to believe that those are two little eaglets, waiting for mom to come home with supper.     But in truth, there…
