I HATE SPIDERS! (However, that's a nice photo of that one, Barry.)



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

I shot this pick of a bird I could not find in the identification book I have here...I saw him last night.

He eats a lot more than the other birds.

He looked to me to go in the 350 pound range.

You can see what happened when he tried to perch on the small feeder.



Also his song leaves a lot to be desired.



I think I will need some new gear to wear when I am filling the feeders now.

Dave,
That't the reason that we can't hang out either suit or the sugar water hummingbird feeders. It draws them like flies.

Dave,
My wife would have a fit if she knew there were bears in our backyard. That's a little too close for comfort.

Bruce...I think you nailed it...the tree was licked clean all around where the suit USED to be in the little wire cage. That thing has not been that clean since the day I bought it.


John.... my wife is a reincarnation of Elly May Clampett.

She has saved more "Critters" from mother natures plan that I can count...but...she told me she drove in the garage fast and had the door comming down as soon as the truck cleared to doorway last night...LMAO!!! Weeell Doggies!

I've heard this fellow for a little while, wasn't sure what it was. Got a great look at it today - a Northern Mockingbird putting on a show. It was at the top of a power pole at the far back of our yard, signing all sorts of sounds, then would leap up in the air and flap around and fall back to the pole every few minutes. I was able to capture it in mid air several times with my 300mm zoom. The image is but a small part of the frame, one of the benefits of a lot of pixels!

I was out railfanning on Sunday, waiting by a wetland for the train to come by, and I spotted this Great Blue Heron in the water. Grabbed a few shots, and got one as it was leaving:

Great pictures of the heron, Bob. There are lots of them around here, but I never managed to have my camera when one of them was leaving. Hats off!

The Turtles in the pond have hatched the babies!

Here's mama pampering herself in the sun.





And here is one of the youngsters with a little something to get an idea of his size.




LOL! He's a little cutie!

These awesome pictures were taken recently.

Unfortunately no one knows who the photographer was.

This is something few
humans will ever be privileged to see

Since it is hotter than hell in the Midwest right now, here is a shot to cool the North American contingent down. The early morning frost in the UK last autumn.
