Safari

This morning, we took a nature walk at the park.  We looked for leaves and pretended we were on a safari.  We drove around the “game park” looking for animals.  We discovered deer, turkey, flying geese, chipmunks and lots of squirrels.

Holly

HollyThe neighbors own two barn cats.  Often, Holly will come over to visit.  Often, while the kids are outside, Holly will walk through the back yard to see what they are doing.

She is not super friendly, but she likes to be around the children.  If they don’t try to hug her too much or pick her up, she will hang around the backyard watching them.

 

 

Maple Leaf

Box Turtle

Box turtleWhile we were exploring, we discovered an Eastern Box Turtle along the side of a parking lot.  They are endangered in Indiana, and we have not seen one in the wild in years.  We admired this one for awhile before moving it to a safer place near the woods we had been walking in.

Spider Webs

As Allan left for work, he told me the foggy morning was beautiful.  I went out trying to get pictures of the fog, but discovered huge spider webs in the field.

Husky Pups

The neighbor has two husky pups that like to come visit.  The kids keep returning them, but the puppies break out of their pen almost every day.  They are adorable, so I use them for camera practice.

More Hummingbirds

Knowing that the hummingbirds would be migrating soon, I spent more time enjoying them today. Most will hide behind the feeder to eat if anyone is outside.  The other one does not seem to be afraid of people and will flitter around watching us if we are on the porch.  She was a willing model for a few pictures today.
