The Red Sea
We ended the day with a nice sunset at Grand Marais Harbor.
It was fun to see the rivers on the North Shore with an abundance of water this year!
Sunrise At Artist's Point
After having a disappointing rainy day, I was greeted with this sunrise the following morning.
This field was being worked by a team of commercial straw balers. They agree to bale up the farmers straw once he is done combining, then move into the field with balers, loaders, and semi trucks and usually truck the straw to large dairy farms to the south. This has become very common in our area. They also haul a lot of hay to the south for farmers. They are usually in and out of a field in the same day. They ran out of daylight on this field, but they were gone by 11:00 the next morning.
This is Devil's Kettle Falls in Judge C. R. Magney S.P. For those of you who are not familiar with this landmark, the upper part of this waterfall to the left usually flows into a cavern and no one knows exactly where the water ends up. You can usually very easily see the water flowing into the cavern. On this particular day there was so much water flowing in the river that it was too much for the cavern to "swallow" and was overflowing so much that you could not even see the hole that it usually flows into.
On The Move
It seems like these little chickadees are constantly on the move.
We've Decided, Son,.....No More Candy For You
A panic attack for the little guy!
This is my final display of a Milbert's Tortoiseshell butterfly. Looking at the three pictures, most people unfamiliar with this butterfly would not believe it is the same insect.
This is another view of the speedy Milbert's Tortoiseshell butterfly.
This Milbert's Tortoiseshell butterfly flies around like it has been shot out of cannon. They do not flutter around like your typical butterfly.
