Dear Denizens Of The Forest

A sharp lookout sits in a tree
Watching a parade of turkeys
I am hiding well it seems to me
As the sun gently breaks the clouds.

The sun sets calling it a day
A lone sentinel sits as  branches sway
A mindful drift of food and play
My day isn't over some will say.





A tiny wisp of milkweed seed floats on top of the water. So serene and delicately out on the prairie.

  3. That first photo of the deer among the branches is so lovely, it would make a wonderful Christmas card!
    Lovely nature scenes!

  4. I love the Eagles. One day they will be here. The crows who lived at the horse farm has moved over to the copse of woods I own. So Mr. and Mrs. Hawk will be on the move. But I like crows too.

  5. As ever the pictures are magnificent. I think the turkeys are much bigger this year.

  6. Excellent shots of the Eagles. Rifle season for Deer starts in the morning. Big deal around this small town.

  8. Speaking of your beautiful eagles a week ago a friend and I saw 8 eagles chasing an osprey with an immature on knocking it down into the water after briefly grasping it in its talons. The osprey recovered and flew into a nearby tree. The eagles followed and a standoff occurred till we left. I've seen eagles harass osprey till the later drops a fish but this scene was really weird.... We were on the river near New Albin, Iowa.

  12. I love seeing your wildlife pictures. I can't usually get pictures of any of these because they like to hang out at the edgers of busy roads around here. I see plenty, but I get no pictures.
