Odds and Ends


Didn't get to check the cameras today. It started raining a little after midnight and we've gotten more wind and rain all day. So I thought I'd post some pics I've wanted to post over the last several weeks but haven't done had time to.

The first set is a sow and her two cubs. I like the cub on the far bank. I'm sure it's watching the frogs in the pond by the way it's head is turned in each pic.

The next set is a hen turkey feeding by the camera. The hens are laying eggs right now. We had an unfortunate accident yesterday with a nest. We were planting corn before the rain hit and one of the coulters on the corn planter hit a nest and break most of the eggs. That was the first turkey nest any of us could remember being in one of the corn fields. Usually all we have to worry about in the spring are to fawns laying in the hay fields when we're mowing.

The last set is some of last years fawns having a pool party in the pond.

Nice variety, Joe! I enjoy seeing the bears. We have bears, but they're rarely seen.

Great pics as usual!

Awesome pics as usual Joe. I love the deer in the pond also.
We have been seeing a lot of wildlife this year. I think it is because we are surrounded by drought in other counties and we keep getting the moisture.
I am haying now and we always worry about the fawns in the hay and the turkey nests. Some Mother turkeys do not leave their nest either. No accidents so far luckily.
Take care Joe. B
