Fields of Sandhill Cranes and a Stop at the Swamp

Today my daughter and I took a drive to try and find a piece of property I have been wanting to visit.  This piece of property that was looking for was swampland with public hunting grounds and was where my uncles and grandfather used to hunt during the fall.  It was a beautiful country drive with views of fields of sandhill cranes.

The Signs of Fall Are Here

Canadian Geese in Flight

I’ve been sticking fairly close to home lately, I’ve been walking the trail system around the UWGB campus and made many morning trips to Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary.  This isn’t a traditional year for me. Fall always brings a road trip or two, most of my yearly travel budget goes toward traveling for fall colors. But not this year.  I have my eye on an investment and that means I need to tighten the budget today for fun tomorrow.

(Picture shared on Instagram)

Nose to Nose With a Raccoon

I was out laying down in the woods, dressed in brown and green clothing and covered in leaves, hoping, waiting and praying to lure in the fanning male turkeys but I received a little surprise.  I looked over to see two little eyes staring at me.  

I could almost hear him say, “Hey lady!  Occupied!”  

 

Guess you will have to wait on turkey photos. Yep! Got ’em too. It was a good day!!

You Stick Out Like A Sore Thumb
Purchase a Print

Early spring there isn’t much color, everything is brown with a little green. Bored with the regular walking paths and nature areas I decided to take my neighbor up on his offer and walk their new property of 50 acres.

When you see a large patch of white in an area that has no snow, you have to investigate.  Low and behold – it isn’t snow!  It is Snow White though 🙂

We dedicate one weekend day a month together to reconnect. The pictures included in this posting are from our Sunday drive in early March to Oconto County, Wisconsin.

Do Flies Drink Water

Flies Drink Water

Flies Drink Water ?

 

Why? Why, didn’t I think that flies drink water? After a rainstorm, I was out searching for raindrops on flowers in my yard but this fly captured my attention.

Do Flies Drink Water Yep, They DO!
He was drinking the raindrops off my raspberry leaves in my garden boxes. Now, if you have never had the pleasure of watching a fly drink raindrops…run. Do it! Flies are not cute little furry creatures; but. man oh, life are they a blast to watch suck up drops. Whole raindrops, mind you.
