Deer Friends

Deer, White-tailed Deer, Buck, Bucks
A couple of white-tailed deer were sharing a morning moment. It looks like one buck might be telling secrets to his relaxing friend. In reality, a little grooming was taking place. The standing deer was using his tongue to clean the ear of the other.

I grabbed this image at the small zoo at Bruemmer Park in Kewaunee County, WI. To get this shot, I had to focus through the high fence that keeps their small herd contained.

Some Bunny Stopped By


This wild rabbit stopped to say, “Hi,” when we were on a recent hike through Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve, in Brown County, WI.

This is the typical wild bunny that seems prolific in our area. This guy (or gal) crossed the trail before us and then stopped on the side for a moment…long enough to provide a photo opportunity. We were thankful for the short encounter.

Frog Days of Summer

Frog, Water, Stream, Amphibious, Amphibian
On a pleasant summer day, hiking through the woodlands of Northeast Wisconsin, we found this frog chillin’ in a small creek. The sparse sunlight, filtering through the trees, seemed to highlight the frog and made it an interesting scene. I rather like the blueish reflections on the water.

We were hiking on the trails of Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve, in Brown County. I used a 250mm telephoto lens to get close enough to this critter without scaring him away. Even then, I had to crop this image quite a bit to get a good view of the frog.

Prince of the Pulpit

Frog, Tree Frog, Jack-in-the-Pulpit, Macro, Garden
This small tree frog found a cozy spot in the shade between the stem and flower of a Jack-in-the-Pulpit plant.

I spotted this little guy on a recent trip to Missouri.  He seemed a bit disinterested in my presence.  It would have been nice if he would have turned toward the camera, smiled and offered a friendly wave.  He, obviously, wasn’t in a friendly mood.

Grass Hopper

Bunny, Rabbit, Hare, Grass, Green, Brown, Cute
This little rascal was very alert, keeping an eye on me while I kept my camera focused on him.

I photographed this wild bunny on a recent trip to Missouri. I was strolling around in the early morning and found out I wasn’t the only one up early. He looks steady here, but he only stood still for a moment before scurrying off to the woods.

Forest Friend

Chipmunk, Eastern Chipmunk, Nature, Woodland, Cute
On a recent stroll through the woodlands of rural N.E. Wisconsin, I engaged in a prolonged staring contest with this Eastern Chipmunk.  After viewing this photo, I declared myself the winner.

I spotted several of these little fellows who seemed to freeze the moment they saw me.  I expect, they were hoping if they remained motionless, I wouldn’t notice them.  I wonder how many of them I may have walked past and missed.

When I did see this guy, I stopped and took a photo.  Then, as he remained motionless, I moved in a foot closer…and then another foot…and another – until he no longer could endure my intrusion into his personal space.  Thankfully, he was more tolerant than I expected.

Sunbather’s Spot

Turtle, Pond, Log, Sun, Nature
There was one spot on the pond where the sun was shining through the trees…and this turtle was taking full advantage of it.

Normally, at the first sight of people, the turtles in this pond would dive into the water. This one was not leaving his cozy spot. Not until I got quite a bit closer.

A Little Squirrelly


Squirrel, Red Squirrel, Eating, Grass, Adorable, CuteA tiny red squirrel enjoys a meal of seed dropped by the bird feeders above.

This was a rare sighting at our house.  We don’t have squirrels around our place.  Our home is surrounded by large farm fields, so any critter making it to our property had to travel quite a way with little cover – except this time of year where the crops are up.  Still, when they get here, there’s no natural food source – no nut trees.

When this little guy showed up, he was the immediate center of attention.  I noticed him when I looked out the window to see what the racket was all about. What I saw amazed me.  This little guy was circling the trunk of a tree as quickly as his nimble legs would allow, with bluebirds in hot pursuit.  The birds were relentless, dive-bombing him at every turn.  Whenever he would venture out of thick brush, the birds would be on him.  He eventually caught a break and was able to grab a quick meal; cleaning up under the bird feeders.

When I spotted him I, naturally, wanted to get a picture. I knew, if I went outside,  he would run and hide. To get this shot, I stayed inside, opened the window, removed the screen and cautiously held my camera out the window.

This was the last time I saw him.  He must have gone on to a friendlier neighborhood. I don’t blame him.

Lucky Rabbit’s Foot


Rabbit, Bunny, Baby, Kit, Wild, Hare, Adorable, CuteA small, wild bunny took a moment for a little personal grooming.  It was giving special attention to cleaning it’s back foot.

I spotted this little guy between rows in a flower garden. It let me take several shots, like it didn’t care that I was there, and then, all of the sudden, it scurried off to cover.

Baby Steps

Ground Squirrel, Baby, Standing, Grass, Young, Juvenile
On its first day exploring the world above ground, this juvenile ground squirrel stands tall on its hind legs to get the best view possible.

We’ve been watching a pair of ground squirrels scurrying around our yard since last fall. I suspected they might be up to something.
