Dear Friends, this fellow had sprayed in the bushes, not sure what upset him but he was trying to outrun his own smell.  His tail was nice so I made him glow, he is probably asleep in his hidy hole now that snow has covered our landscape, til Tomorrow MJ

Dear Friends, home bound for the day so I camped on my couch and watched the birdies at my bird feeder.  This tufted titmouse was flying in and out, I think this is my best shot, what do you think, til Tomorrow MJ

Crane Explosion

Dear Friends, found the cranes on a cornfield and abruptly at 4pm, they all left in a huge explosion of wings and calling. The air was full (for a moment), then I was left all alone on the roadside.  Tomorrow when deer hunting opens,, they will probably leave the country for the south land. til Tomorrow MJexplosion
