You've heard of the old song, 'Turkey in the Straw? Well, this is 'Turkey in a Tree.' Many people do not believe or understand how a 16 to 30 pound wild turkey can fly, let alone land in a tree. This is a yearling hen who remained after all the rest of her flock took off when they saw me coming. She... Sign in to see full entry.

A Loon Catches A Whopper! Photo One

This was taken over in the Seney Wildlife Preserve, about 24 miles from my home. They have an odd lake naming configuration, but as I recall, this was on 'Pond G.' The loon involved was a very large male. I had watched him dive under the water a number of times before he came up with this ~14 inch... Sign in to see full entry.

Meet The Blue Jay

This is a young (probably) female blue jay, or scientifically known as Cyanocitta cristata. It is quite common in most of the US, all the way from Florida to the southern areas of Canada.

Late Spring Wood Lilies

I've found an old folder with a lot of nature and wildlife photos in it. Today's selection is a bunch of 'Wood Lilies' I happened up early last summer. I always loved the brilliant orange they display. Sign in to see full entry.

Willy - Nilly

Meet a couple of friends of mine, 'Willy' and 'Nilly.' I became such a familiar creature to them, that they began to get surprising close to me every time I came out to the Dollarville Flood Zone where they made their home. Otters are well known for their playful antics and these two certainly... Sign in to see full entry.

Pearls On A Web

This photo was taken about 5 AM while we were camping. I had taken several shots without good results. Finally, I had my nephew hold up a black tee shirt behind this web. I set the flash to a very low setting and this was the result. Sign in to see full entry.
