Face Only a Mother Could Love

Turkey Eating Birdseed Wildlife Photography Print

Are turkeys not the ugliest birds you have ever laid eyes on? At least I think so.  It is the face that kills me.  A face only a mother could love. But, they are big, beefy and run pretty funny. The only thing I can say that is pretty, or should I say – pretty special is the way they fan their feathers during mating season, now there is a plus!  That is a pure beauty!

Silver Spotted Skipper

Silver Spotted Skipper Butterfly 

The silver-spotted skipper is the largest of the skippers and is most commonly found during the months of June, July, and August in Wisconsin.

They enjoy collecting nectar in open fields of flowers.  The skipper is easy to identify.


It has a brown body, with a few white spots and an orangish yellow band through its wing.

Gray Fox

 

I was on my way to photograph the sunset along the shores of Green Bay which requires me to head out through the country roads but I didn’t get all that far.  This splendid gray fox was ducking in and out of a few cars on a piece of property right in town.

Normally, I get ever so close to a wood duck in the wild and it rapidly takes to flight. I have been practicing my master skills of patience and stalking the drake wood ducks on this little retention pond down the street from my home. Hoping to come up with one, head on excellent keeper photo.
