I’ve been…

Away from posting here, obviously, and busy with some things that have been difficult. I just haven’t had it in me to write anything and I didn’t want to just post crud so… I’ve been away. We did go on a trip up to Lake Erie last month which was the first time traveling and staying in a hotel in over a year.

Other than lousy hotel food, being in the middle of nowhere and having to drive a bit of a clip to get some decent eats it was a nice trip.

Will hopefully post more soon but no promises until things settle into whatever they are going to settle into. In the meantime, here are some of the creatures I was hanging around. Please note that both eagle images are VERY cropped as they were either far away or way up in a tree that the Ohio Department of Natural Resources had roped off so that we hoomans would not get too close; my 560mm can only reach so far.

Adult eagle chilling in one huge Cottonwood tree nest at Magee Marsh. The nest held a couple with one eaglet that was getting close to fledging but I was never there when they were all together and visible.

Juvenile eagle looking over it’s territory probably wondering what to eat at Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge.

And helping a turtle cross the road to get safely to its side of the marsh at Magee Marsh. By the way, anyone know what kind of turtle this is?

I’m still culling the enormous amount of photos I took while up north and hope to share them with you soon. Have a great weekend everyone!

    Beautiful pictures of the eagle in the nest 👏
    So nice that the department takes care of these majestic birds by cordoning off their trees.

    Sorry about the difficult things. I hope they solve soon. You that no problem, however big it is, goes unresolved if left unattended? (Joke of course, but sometimes it works.)
