Early November Afternoon
A wealth of wildlife this afternoon…
Great Blue Heron feathers. There were about 9 of these scattered under a tree.
Saucy Chipping Sparrow.
Buckeye butterfly on Camphor Daisy seedheads.
A stout grasshopper.
One of four Whitetail Deer.
Following its companions.
I am always grateful when that spot of yellow that shows up to help me identify these otherwise plain warblers, as Yellow-rumped.
Besides these, there were others who didn’t stay still for a picture – Eastern Bluebirds, Pine Warblers, a Ground Skink, and two small Southern Leopard Frogs.
You are amazing! Wish I could walk in the woods with you. I am sure you could point out many animals and birds I never see that are right there. Wow!
Oh thank you! Ever since I was a kid, I would notice things in the woods, like bits of bird eggs and so on, but I am just now learning what species I am seeing.
Well it’s a gift and I am thrilled to see you are sharing it with those of us who don’t have the same gift. Way to go!
Love the clouds. We so often don’t look up. And the woodpecker made me smile. It’s like he’s playing peekaboo with you.
All so cool! I’ve never found a heron feather, even though we have herons nearby–that’s neat!
