While visiting Mt. Rainier we were lucky enough to be there on a clear day.
In the early morning hours late last summer I witnessed a small herd of deer drinking from the river and watched from a distance as they began their day.
The Rock Of Cashel stands high upon a hill overlooking the town of Cashel in County Tipperary, Ireland.
This week’s photo challenge is Rounded with the subtitle “Goodbye, straight lines. Hello, curves.”
Every summer our yards hosts a number of toads.
A great time of day to spot turtles in the river is at dawn.
Since they are cold blooded the turtles need the warm of the sun to really get moving. Rocks in the middle of the river provide a great opportunity to soak up the sun’s energy in a place where they won’t likely be disturbed.
When I found this Eastern River Cooter warming on the rocks the sun’s rays had just made their way over the trees on the river bank.
There’s something very special about being on the water at dawn.
The James River near Richmond, Virginia is home to a fairly large number of Double-Crested Cormorants. It’s pretty common to spot them sunning on rocks or swimming in the water.
