Found in Nature – CFFC

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge for this week has been Found in Nature. I’m going to take a look in the archives and see what I can come up with.

If you like magical realism with suspense, action and a bit of family sarcasm, you will enjoy these books:

  1. Well, Heckle and Jeckle made me cackle! And the squirrel in his tree house has “bed head” and looks like he’s asleep!

    I love the heron, but I really love the turtles sharing the log with him.

    Horses and cows….made my day!

    You and Faith look very pleased with yourselves, and rightly so!

    Have a great week and enjoy the warmth that’s coming. Hallelujah!

    • We were pretty pleased with ourselves at the top of that rock, Ginger. Faith had suggested that hike in response to my asking her if I could go with her on “an easy hike.” She hadn’t been there before but a friend told her he thought is was easy.

      The heron sharing the log with the turtles is a favorite of mine. The just opened the canal path last weekend, so maybe I can check it out soon.

      Bed hair – that’s funny. He does look like he just woke up. We have one Smokey who always arrives late to the feeding party. Everyone else in on their second peanut when he jumps in. We laugh, but he always catches up.

      Enjoy this week, Ginger. I hope it doesn’t get too hot, too soon.


  2. Turtles being my kindred spirits, I am partial to the Still Life with Heron and Turtles. I don’t know how you got the heron to pose like that, but it’s a great portrait. I also love the ice on the fence, and once again I am reminded of how many beautiful things there are close at hand. Dads and daughters do rise above it all — also a great portrait!

  3. Such great photos, Dan.
    The squirrel in the hole in the tree is so cute. I don’t know where our squirrels go. They are in the yard and the scurry somewhere up into the trees…
    The racing birds are hilarious! Remember the old DA hair for men? Yup. These guys look slick.

    • Thanks Cee. We were in Duluth,MN for several days. It was really weird seeing the end of the lake. I lived in Seattle when Mt St Helen’s erupted. I went back for a visit in 2002 or maybe 2006, I’m not sure. I love it when I see the heron.

  4. I like the shot of the fox as I’ve only seen one crossing a field in Pennsylvania while driving our daughter back to Philly. Needless to say, there’s no photo for the dual reasons of no place to pull over and it all happened too fast. :-)

  5. Are those gulls? And are they wearing bike helmets for racing? Your line made me smile. I like the bunnies and the squirrel photos as well – it is fun and rewarding to spoil them … simple pleasures. I saw a pair of Turkey Vultures at the Park recently – one had its wings spread out like a Cormorant does. First time I’ve seen them perching. I was ready to count noses to see if any squirrel buddies had met a horrible fate as sadly we have Hawks looming large at this venue.

    • The little racers are Terns – I think they are Royal Terns. I always liked finding them on the beach. Those Turkey Vultures flew down and swooped in front of me as they were heading to a different perch. That was more than I needed to see. That’s the same park where I’ve been seeing the hawk lately. I keep track of the squirrels :-)

      • I don’t think I have ever seen Terns. I liked their coloring. I would not been keen on seeing Turkey Vultures “doing their thing” either. Now that the hawks have migrated back to Michigan, I also count noses at the Park.
