The number of turkey vultures you see riding the thermals around Wyalusing can be pretty incredible. I caught this one giving me the side-eye, as it flew overhead.
Yes, there are beavers living in the city of Madison. I saw these trees along the Starkweather Creek, a few blocks south of Milwaukee Street. I’ve also seen similarly chewed trees in Vilas Park along Lake Wingra.
This monarch butterfly was so intent on flying from blossom to blossom, lapping up lunch, it was in no mood to sit still for a nice portrait. I did manage to get a couple of shots from interesting angles though.
