The above are female pheasants...see how they blend in...they are so hard to see most of the time. They had my attention so much that I did not even see the handsome fellow below till he ran out as I was getting ready to leave.
Besides the 4 ladies and the gentleman above, I saw two others at the opposite end of the strip pits. No chance to photograph them though. It was when I was entirely focused on the eagles.
The one strip pit has lost a lot of water...I have never seen it so low. I don't think it has ever been a deep strip pit like some, but in all the years I have been driving through there, it has not been so low. I am not sure what it means as there is lots of water standing in all the normal places. Anyway, it is full of swans, other waterfowl,
And if you enlarge the photo above and look closely you will see four sandhill cranes. They blend in so well they are hard to s pot. I am hoping this becomes a regular stopping place for them...I saw three out there a while back.
In the photo above the cranes are almost close to the left edge...
Besides the deer pictured above, I cannot say how many I saw.
Oh, I also saw a skunk but by then it was too late to get a decent photo.
I don't know where to begin...this past Sunday made two weeks that Roger had been sick. Sinus/cold type of thing. He would feel like he was getting better only to feel bad. So got in to the doctor yesterday and he feels like a new man.
And Lo and Sarah were here for the weekend. Cannot remember all she has done lately. On the way here, she asked Sarah "will Mamaw still have the play-doh?" Not sure if she comes to see me or to play with play-doh. haha We were playing with it and she had a ball of it that she was calling the moon, so I asked her if she wanted to go to the moon...she say, "Oh, Mamaw, I don't want to go into outer space!" That from a three year old.
