I have been doing work assignments most of yesterday and today. Let's see... I get paid to drive all over and discover back roads and small lakes. Today, one property was gated and I had to walk in through a forest for a half mile. Shocking! I can see you have a lot of sympathy. Seriously, except that the reporting takes a lot of time, and the company wants it to take less time (I seriously don't know how to fix that... I'm not dawdling.) this is a great job for me.
Today, I'm featuring animals spotted this afternoon.
Here's a frequent sight, but I seldom manage to catch it. It's a great blue heron in flight. Its head is on the left, and feet trailing out to the right. It was sharing a field with the next sighting.
You will see the occasional buffalo farm in Michigan. The meat is very good eating, unless you are a veg. The animals weren't interested in posing- most facing the other way. But one baby stood up to pose.
This one was a shock, but I shouldn't have been surprised. I'd heard that there is a significant local population of albino deer. I'd even seen a stuffed one (yes the entire deer) on display in a local sport shop, but I hadn't run across any. Well... imagine my astonishment when two of them walked across the road in front of me today. They were with two normal whitetails, one of which had an injured leg. I was watching that one, and didn't see the white deer at first. Wow! I missed the really good pics, with no intervening trees because I couldn't get the camera on and the window open fast enough. I never would have expected to see two of them together. Maybe they were twins.
And just in case you aren't impressed enough, I give you the loch serpent of Little Star Lake!
