Some Creatures Great And Small. June 8, 2011

Looking over my photos of the last few days, I realized I had several animal (or animal-related) shots which might work as one post, so… here goes!

A beaver lodge up in Windsor, taken the day of the big storms (sorry, no beaver today!):

Mallards on a bit of open water nearby:

While we’re in a fowl mood, a family of geese in Williamstown:

That one was taken from atop my car, with the wind gusting so hard it very nearly blew me and my tripod off!

Here’s a doe in a field in Charlemont at day’s end:

…and a sweet little guy who plopped onto the hood of my car as I was bulling through low branches on a seldom-traveled old woods road:

Surprised me, I must say!  🙂

And lastly, a digression from the “wildlife” theme but kind of a nice photo without another place to be, here’s a horse in a pasture of buttercups in Williamstown:

It sometimes seems that image-worthy scenes present themselves in thematic clusters, but I suppose it’s more a mater of keying into one aspect of my surroundings and going with that flow.

Anyway, that’s all for now.

I like the snake the best! Cool.

Well, I’m quite fond of the horse eating buttercups. Then again, I’ve always found horses to be a romantic ideal of personal freedom.

The pictures are all very cool.

I’ve never seen a beaver lodge. Great photo of the snake. But the horse eating buttercups is very sweet.

Really nice set of photos, as always.

The photo of your windshield reminds me that we’ll have to renew our National Forest Parking stickers next week.

Thanks, Ladies. And Frau B, I was thinking the same thing, except… Holy Cow, it’s next weekend already – I’m psyched!
