On our travels around the ‘hood, we’re seeing more and more fawns. They sure do grow up fast.
When we pulled into a parking lot, these two were right out in front of the truck with Mom bringing up the rear. (All of these pictures were taken through the front window, so they’re not exactly crystal clear).
They followed Mom as she jumped over the tall grass and disappeared.
I can’t guarantee this will be the last snapping turtle picture I’m going to share with you, but I couldn’t believe this one. She’s got algae growing on her shell and looks like some kind of little bugs too. And if that’s not bad enough, there’s a slug on her head.But she was laying more eggs and most likely whatever comes along, digs them up and eats them will do that again. It’s no wonder they lay so many eggs. This article says 30-80. I’m thinking it could be more.
I'm the female version of "Jack of all trades, master of none". I make bottle cap pincushions as well as other items made with felt and sell them in my Etsy Store, Up The Creek. I make most of these pincushions while at our cabin in northwest Wisconsin. Our cabin is right "Up the Creek" from an active beaver pond. There's always something going on out there. Birds and other wildlife are abundant Up the Creek. I try to get good pictures of bird and wildlife and will post them, even if they're not award winners. My goal is to share what I see. Not to win any medals.
