This past Sunday Morgan and I went for a walk with the dogs. It was bitter cold but no real wind so we didn't mind too much. The sun was out so that helped. I brought my Canon G9 knowing that my 5D would probably not like the cold. To tell you the truth the G9 didn't like it much either and my fingers liked it even less!
First shot...this old milkweed pod caught my eye.It really amazes me the number of hidden treasures that we pass right by all spring and summer long, never knowing there is a family right beside the trail. This is just the first of many nests we passed within reach. Morgan spotted this "Thinking of You" balloon that had landed on our property, so we gathered it up and deposited it where it belongs. What's funny is when I went to visit Marvin's blog http://elmostreport.blogspot.com/2008/12/mouse-in-woods-eeeek.html I found he'd had almost the same experience! It must be that time of year??? Ha Ha! Heading toward the old fort and bridge with Ole leading the way.Whoops looks like the bridge is creeping west! Daisy Lu always ready for a deer to hop out, she really thinks she is bigger than the average deer. Good thing no one is home! A big ol' Oak tree. A very well used trail. Deer, rabbit, and fox tracks.I'm not sure but I'm thinking this may be a mourning dove nest. It's quite large and made of loose sticks. Another chilly home. There were only a couple interesting leaves. I forgot to post the other one...will do that tomorrow. Then just when I thought my fingers couldn't take it any longer,
Today will be a beauty but tomorrow we're in for another round of who knows what falling out of the sky.
Guess I'll go stock up!
