These turkeys seemed a bit wary about the new year. Can’t say I blame them.
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.
Seen in Baileys Harbor, Door County Wisconsin.
Spotted a few common loons on Lake Monona the other day. A good pit stop for them on their annual migration to the lakes of the north.
A sure sign of spring’s arrival — sandhill cranes have returned to Wisconsin.
Today’s edition of “What are YOU looking at?”
Grackles have interesting color attributes. See them in bright sunlight and they appear almost totally black (except for that iridescent head). See them in diffused light, and in addition to blue, you see brown, purple, and even a little green. But what I like the most about grackles is that piercing yellow eye.
