I meant wildlife, not wild life!
PHOTO 1: We saw these geese on the St. Louis River when we went whitewater rafting with my brother and his girlfriend a few weeks ago.
PHOTO 2: This dragonfly was resting on the sidewalk. He knew how to work the camera!
PHOTO 3: This is the mother pileated woodpecker and her two babies at feeding time. They live in a tree in our front yard. During mating season, daddy woodpecker likes to try to peck a hole in anything metal. The noisier the better to show off for those females! Pileated woodpeckers are the largest (about 15") woodpecker in North America. Night or day, those babies weren't shy about saying they were hungry! Go to allaboutbirds.org and hit play to hear their call!
PHOTO 4: I found this moth taking a nap on the inside of the junk shed door. His colors and textures are fabulous!
This is as wild as it gets here at WhisperWood Cottage! How about in your neck of the woods (or desert, or beach, or mountains, or wherever you call home)? What creatures make you pull out your camera, hush and watch, or run away screaming?
