Snap, snap...........

Got a pic of this old fellow....warm days have brought the turtles out.

This is a big ole snapping turtle. I took a pic with a telephoto a bit out...sorry for the not so crystal clear pic.



Say hello to my friend the Canandian Goose. Notice it has a band on its leg. I thought he was going to chase me, but just wandered around...whew.

Oh I so enjoy these pictures. I really do!

When I was really little I got chased by angry angry ducks and they bit me! I was this little blond thing being chased by big mean ol' ducks. Ugh. They sure look cute but get too close and they'll give you a run for your money! I give you credit to have the bravery to get close for the photograph..you must have passion! Laughing

Sometimes we get snapping turtles strolling across our lawn.

Cool pics! Canadian goose (not geese) are a real pest around here. But they have come back from being endangered and that is always good.

here's another little guy that came around.

thanks a lot everyone. it was a nice sunny evening--something that should taken advantage of. i had a turkey run through my backyard tonight but i missed getting a good shot of him. he jumped a 6ft. fence!

there are some bald eagles in the area that we're going on a field trip to take some pics. i'll use a tripod and make some changes to the settings on the camera. it's a lot more fun snapping pics than waiting in doctors offices.

The little guy looks like a American Robin - we have them here, too. In my very backyard, I see them plenty.
terrific pics, Marc !!

With all the robins around here it's a wonder we have any earth worms left.

I remember being chased by a goose when I was a Brownie. The whole troop went to the local wildlife refuge and I was the smallest kid....so I was trailing in the back of the group as we all ran away from the goose!

Fast forward about 15 years and I was at the Grey Goose tavern (the local watering hole) and a grey goose was in the parking lot (he didn't realize how appropriate that was). I was getting something from my trunk when he snapped my jeans at the hem. I had to shake my leg pretty hard to get him to let go!

These creatures can be so aggressive!

Keep posting those pictures!

Soon after I met my future wife we were heading out to her mom's place to ride horses. Her mom has just under 100 million animals/pets. About five minutes before we get there she informs me about "Huey". "Huey", a very big white goose of her mom's, has a shoe fetish. He will rape your shoe any chance he gets.

I remember just looking at her incredulously in the car and asking "Why does your mom keep a shoe raping goose"?????????

Normal people would at least have a leg humping dog but noooooooo, she has to have a big obnoxious feathered sexual predator as a pet.

Really neat pics!

Made me think how much I am looking forward to taking Zoe to the zoo this summer.

That snapping turtle reminds me of when I lived in Joplin, MO and our neighbors found one and decided to eat it!

The thought about made me sick.

They brought some turtle soup over for us, but i threw it away.

Just does not appeal to me in the least!

Anyway, thanks for the pics.
