Here there are springs. At the start of one are two huge maple trees. One has this funny growth at the base (a gall?).
There are a few dead trees I left since owls nest in them. This sasafras tree had a honeysuckle wrapped around it I removed. Probably would make a good walking cane.View attachment 66647920200815_154047.jpg20200815_154023.jpg20200815_154149.jpg20200815_154637.jpg

Here's some you guys might like. These two reside on a lake in the UP of MI we camp at and one morning they swam past within 40ft. They didn't have any cygnet's this year.

This is a really enjoyable thread. Fantastic pics of Mother Nature & her cohorts.

Snymat 68 - post #833. At the very bottom - the white bird on the limb. What kind of bird is that?

In the spring I get large flocks of swans that lay over. They are Trumpeter swans. They might stay as long as three weeks. They have never nested here - just passing thru. They will only land on the big lake. My little lake is rimmed with tall basaltic lava cliffs and probably is too confining for them.

Anyhow - during their stay. Honking, squawking, flapping, generally noisy behavior - all night long. Even though they are some 200 yards distance from my house - it can keep me up all night. I have to shut the bedroom window to reduce the sound of their nighttime antics.
