When I first spotted this Pale Beauty Moth, I thought that it was just another Cabbage Butterfly, but it seemed to have a little different style of flying, so I followed it and ended up with this.
I was having a little fun watching these three deer splashing around in the river and taking a few pictures of them when all of a sudden this young Bald Eagle bursts onto the scene! It was flying very low to the water and rounded the bend in the river, which is to the left in the picture. It certainly got the attention of the deer! I am not sure who was more surprised to see the eagle - the deer or me!
A Hidden Star
I didn't really notice the "star" on the bottom side of the Prairie Smoke while I was shooting.
This tiny seed is one of hundreds that are contained in pods that are formed by the wildflower called dog bane, also known as Indian hemp. This seed is similar to the seeds that you would find in a milkweed pod only much smaller. It does not take much of a breeze to send these seeds airborne!
Just one of many sunsets that this old building and silo have witnessed.
Got His Camo Duds On
It is little wonder that these little tree frogs go largely unnoticed!
Shine On Me
This tiny island on Lake Superior is catching a few rays that are peeking through the heavy cloud cover.
The Hatfields and McCoys
It is spring breeding season on the lek, and the male prairie chickens are trying to win over the females.
I can almost hear the Blue Jays screaming out this word to warn all of the small birds in the area to stay away. On the morning that I shot this picture, I thought that it was a little odd that there was not a bird in the yard for some time. After searching the yard, I finally spotted this Northern Shrike perched on a branch looking for breakfast.
I think that this Osprey will have leftovers even if it has a family to feed!
