Sunday Stroll: Along The River

Visit Marcie the originator of Sunday Strolls. Her Quiet Country House in Michigan is always a treat to visit. 
An old home for someone 
A new encampment area

A treasure found deep in the woods.
A wooden bowl of unknown origin.

The prairie is waking up slowly.

The bowl visited new areas with me.
 We fixed some lunch.
 It didn''t eat anything

We played with shadows.
 I found a tree that looked like a catfish mouth.

It was a tough hike, time to sit and relive all the new found moments .

A Bit Of Primitive

Wow, a nice find. A trophy of your walk.

A hawk flees swiftly, escaping before there is a need
Where buffalo roam...

And young Elk always are at play.

A Little Bird Told Me

Cardinals are starting to pair up for the season, where all winter they flocked.

It's like tucking in a child
Reminiscing on a day finishing well
And after sharing goodnights, there is beauty as well.

A real show stopper, Hooded Mergansers, on a small farm pond. I like the male on the right getting as much of his body out of the water for the female in front of him. These are the most skittish of any duck species next to Wood Ducks it seems. Ducks are harder than geese to get close to.
All four appear to be courting one particular female.
This is a Lesser Scaup on the bottom of this shot.
