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…

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…

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…

Alpacas Over our morning coffee, as we looked out, on our back yard, we pondered exactly how nice it would be to see alpacas roaming through the trees and maybe, going down to the river, for a drink of water. We actually contemplated what we would need to do, to give them a happy place…

Moa Yes, More Chickens! Moa, in Hawaiian, means chicken, and it is not unusual to see these lovely creatures wondering around, shall we say – free as a bird! Whether the majority of these wild chickens are domesticated animals that have gotten free, descendants of the Red Junglefowl, brought to Hawaii by the Polynesians, or a…
