You're supposed to take an upside down plastic bucket to sit on and a fishing pole with you. :)
If you sit on it right side up, you don't have to leave your pole unattended when you need a piss break and miss a fish! But then again, it might form a seal and freeze up. Never mind... don't take my advise.

Hey, a woodchuck!


hahahaha When my kids were little and they'd see a woodchuck down by the river, they'd say "Hey, a beaver!"

Yes, whale shark in the first. Black tips in the second. Was some hammerheads too, but they kept pretty far away as we moved through the current.

Seen in the Ottawa NFS today which is located in the western UP of MI. Just a reminder that pileated woodpeckers and all the close cousins we have here, do not tear into healthy trees. They know which are infested with bugs and not healthy. I have no idea how they do this, maybe smell? Hope you like them!

This hawk was flying around while I was pruning my blueberries.

My photos aren't fancy, but here they are. Top two are bear tracks which are not fresh. We have seen fresh ones but not today. Bottom ones are Fisher.

For a few years I have had a nesting pair of Great Horned Owls and the crows don't like them. I just took a picture of one sunning himself in the afternoon sun. Too bad I don't have a nice camera.

After sitting in the trees for an hour, the owl flew and sat on the Martin box. He sure looks well fed. We have no rabbits and our squirrel numbers are dwindling.

We have some albino which are really gray squirrels, who come to our feeder. We sometimes have more than one here at a time and yes, they have pink eyes. We've seen them here for 20+ years so those we see today, must be there kits. How could we have so many here?? They seem to do fine. Does anyone else see this?

I know they exist, but have never seen a white one. I did see a black one once upon a time, but that's the only one I have ever seen.

We have black ones here as well. Seems these gray squirrels have lots of color variety, like coyotes do. But the white albino ones??!!??
