He/she's hard to see, but here's a very young blue herron ("crane") perched in a mimosa tree a few feet away from my boat dock this afternoon. Every so often, the bird would "cheep" pathetically. I think its mother was gone most of the day. Shortly after I took this photo, it hopped down from the tree and perched on an exposed tree root right at the water's edge. I almost couldn't see it at that point because it blended in perfectly with the rocks and shoreline.




Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm a busy man. I have a railroad to run.

Mike, I see the little bugger!

Here is a cow and calf elk that we saw on the steam train ride in Washington state.

In our recent trip to Washington State, I bought a two-day fishing license. Now you know that Washington is known for the salmon and trout, but they also have some mighty largemouth bass.

Tyson: Leave the 'little piggies' alone. Did you see the size of that one some guy in Texas bagged the other day. They measured it and it was 12 feet long. Just think what he could do with those tusks if he got hold of someone!!!

I like the elk shot Bruce. Throw that poor minnow back. His momma is looking for him.

Even this close to the city we still have wild life in our yard. Of course the dogs keep them moving but they're out there. We have had a deer that loved my new bright grass but he has long gone. We have a possum that keeps tearing up my suet feeder. They're building a whole nest of condos about a half mile away from here and the wild life is on the move. So far, the dogs have accounted for about 10 mice and 8 rats. They kill them and bring them to the back door so we can dispose of them.

Going out to the store (mall) and watch people. They are so interesting!!! Almost as much fun as going to the zoo.

See y'all later

Bruce,

If John B and Allen see that fish, it could very well wind up as a pizza topping. [:-goldfish]

OK, guys, here is the fish story. Two of my sons, my 10 year old grandson, and I went fishing in this pond. We started out casting lures--no strikes. We changed to plastic worms--no strikes. By this time, several hours had passed, and my grandson was getting discouraged. So, we switched to bobber and live worms, and tried to catch something. Mission accomplished![:-thumbu] You have to at least give me credit for having the self-confidence to share the picture.

Jim,
I saw the picture and I think we should make Bruce to official Anchovie supplier for the break room.[:-thumbu][:-thumbu]
I am not sure Bruce but that looks more like a Smallmouth than a Largemouth.
Of course the size of the fish could have me confused.
