Whilst perusing the summer photos for these posts I very much enjoyed seeing all the kinda good animal pictures that I got this summer. I like animal pix, but I don't always have the patience to wait for the critters to stand still or come close or what have you. A longer lens would be pretty awesome and quite helpful.
|Loon on Smith Lake|
But because of previously mentioned (to the point of obnoxiousness I am sure) kayak, I have been able to get a little bit closer to those creatures that hang out by navigable bodies of water.
|The Eagle who hangs out on the north side of Butternut Lake|
|Strange looking deer near Golden, CO (not kayaking but oh well. Its my blog and I can go off topic if I want)|
|Early spring Loons with baby|
|I surprised this deer who was wading in the water on Smith Lake|
I saw things that I never would have, because I have control over when I could get out onto the water. And a lot of the time I was just lucky!
|32 turtles, baby (Flambeau River)|
|The Loons on Smith, apparently doing a male domination ritual. That was fascinating.|
|Juvenile Merganzers (Boulder Junction area)|
|A very noisy young Eagle over near Boulder Junction|
|Blue heron- they are the reason I decided I need a longer lens! :D|
|Mama of the noisy young Eagle as previously shown|
|Tree toad- a very little tree toad that perched on my door's window|
|Tree toad that had been on my garage door and fell onto the side of my car! Not quite so teensy|
|Jac says hi!|
|This guy is always happy to see me, and the feeling is mutual!!|
|Mama deer and baby seen near the bike trail|
|Lookie the little spider I found on the horse bucket. She's pretty cute|
|LOVE this guy.|
Some of my best pictures of the year! I can't wait to see what else I can get, as my adventures are not done yet. And that gives me a lot of joy...
