I have posted this barn before...but when we passed it the other day I just had to pause and take a few more of it. I would probably have taken a photo of the sky if nothing at all had been there, though.
Last Saturday when we were out for our drive, we went north...to go by the big orchard for one thing. The other is near the orchard, we take this road that goes down to this swampy area. Last summer it was dry when we were up there...it is still not as full as you would think it might be at this time of year.
I just recently discovered a new meme...Rubbish Tuesday over at Rubbish by Roan. So this is my offering. We came across it in 2012 in Parke County, or at least I am pretty sure we were still in Parke County in Indiana.
There was an RV parked out behind...and these two came to greet me. Yes, they were friendly...so far I have never had a close encounter other than having a few dogs that I could hardly get away from.
The turtles were kind of shy...this log had at least 16 turtles on it to begin with but they slid/dove into the water when I moved just one to many times. A couple of these stayed there, then the other two crawled back on it while we watched. The log full of turtles is posted at Pics & Pieces.
We went up to the Heron Viewing Station north of Danville, Illinois yesterday. Though we only saw the Great Blue Herons from a distance or else in flight, this was a new bird for me. Looking in my bird book, I think it is a Sora....I don't think I have ever heard of or saw one before.
Just thought I might as well throw in this other shot.
