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!!

Drake Common Merganser

After walking some trails today at Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary,  I sat on a bench around the duck pond for 15 minutes, there was a drake common merganser keeping me company.

So Elegant

Even though this duck is called the common merganser, they have an elegance about them. They are such pretty birds.

Downy Woodpecker

Downy woodpeckers are the smallest of North America's woodpeckers but there are many smaller species elsewhere, especially the piculets. The total length of the species ranges from 14 to 18 cm (5.5 to 7.1 in) and the wingspan from 25 to 31 cm (9.8 to 12.2 in). They love to eat suet from feeders in the winter. This little guy is currently winter feeding - eating my homemade suet. Enjoy little guy!

Chipmunk Itch He Can’t Scratch

Chipmunk Itch He Cant Scratch - Watched him chase his tail for a period of time and then finally, hop up on a wooden fence to grab his tail and chop down. You could see wildlife photography print

Chipmunk Itch He Can’t Scratch

A poor little guy has an itch he just couldn’t seem to get to.

 

(All my photography is fulfilled by a contracted company.  Read about this here. )

Watched him chase his tail for a period of time and then finally, hopped up on a wooden fence to grab his tail and chomped down.

 

You could see the instant relief in his eyes. Then he happily went on his way.
