A Black Capped Chickadee bringing a warm welcome to this mid-summer day.
Wait, whats that rustling in the bushes.
It’s super baby bunny!
Smaller than a squirrel yet bigger than a mouse with quadruple the cuteness of both. Mightily hopping onto rocks and eating every plant that gets in their way.
Super baby bunny brings brightness to start the day.
Have a wonderful weekend.
It was a cloudy mid-morning when we ran across this Clay-Coloerd Sparrow singing away. Their song is an interesting one and one that sounds quite like an insect to me. Clay Colored Sparrows are birds of shrubby terrain and that is exactly where we found this one. They are numerous within their range in the northern prairies of North America yet their numbers seem to be declining due to habitat loss.
Two mule deer fawns head off into the sunset through fields of sunflowers and balsam root with grasses just tall enough to easily slip out of sight when need be. They were not alone this evening as Mom was just ahead leading and teaching these two little ones the ways of Mule Deer life as they quietly slipped off into the sunset.
Bugs and flowers go hand and hand. This little black and yellow guy was probing for nectar while doing a little polinating at the same time. One of the things that is fun about macro photography is getting a glimpse into a world you really can not see with the naked eye and all too often we forget that just because we can not see something it does not matter.
He made it through a long cold winter safe and sound now with antlers growing fast and wrapped in a velvet coat. A young White-tailed Deer makes his way through the forest aware and quietly as he can.
