Hope this brings a smile to your face....


You can click to enlarge.  I have posted this before...but every time I see it I get tickled.  My brother says he hunts this photo every now and then  and laughs about it.  This is not photo-shopped...other than I cropped it and I resized the photo.  I did not know I had captured the upside down goose till I downloaded the photos.

I don't know what was wrong...they would come in to land on this little strip pit, and about the time they would start to land it was like they hit the brakes hard...like something startled them or scared them, they would pull up and would then circle back around and start to land again, only to do the same thing again.   I don't remember how many times they did this. Finally they just regrouped and flew off....  I would think if something scared them they would not have tried landing again and again.

Rust


A bit more rust from Patton's Corner.  Look at all those uncovered gears and chains...when I see this I wonder how many accidents happened...how many fingers were lost in repair work...trying to do stuff quickly without stopping.

The color yellow


I love sunflowers...running across pictures of them is like waking up to a sunny day.

Otto and Rosie


That little Rosie could do anything to Otto.


And still can.

Ring-necked Duck


Just a couple pics from today.


I have tried to snag a pic of them before, but never had even this much success.  They usually take off to the far end of the pond.

Please read notice...

Notice:
I wanted to give notice that I will be going to full moderation of comments.  That means your comments won't show up till I have time to moderate them.  I have been getting some very nasty comments from Anonymous.  Funny thing they don't really bother me...I just hate for people that come here to see such hate in the comments.  I don't like giving someone like that a platform.

***************
Now to the photo for today....

Don't you just love him!  I couldn't believe that this Northern Bobwhite was on top of this big round bail of hay.

Now you see me...


Now you see me...


Now you don't!    (actually, I don't remember if this was the same swan in both photos.)

Watch when the muskrat goes swimming past in the video below....

Looking forward


I look forward to days where I at least have the possibility of seeing butterflies.

Sandhill Cranes


Old photos....but I still enjoy seeing them when I run across them.

Wind Turbines....


About an  hour north of here, these wind turbines become numerous.  They are huge.


I never tire of seeing them....but I do wonder how it would be to live near them.


I am not sure if this one was being worked on or if it was just being installed.

I am showing the following photos to give an idea of how many there were.  They were stretched from horizon to horizon.  ALL the photos in this post, are drive-by shots.  Remember, click on the photo to expand the view.  These are much more interesting in the bigger version.

March Madness


Imagine the conversations at this farm during March Madness...Purdue University and Indiana University are big rivals.  I always wonder how many kids live here, or, possibly the mom went to one place and the dad the other. 

This was a drive-by shot...I wish it were better.  But that being said, I love this photo.  Not sure why...I think it is the sky/light.

There's always one!


No matter where you go or what you do, there is always the one that is different.  (Sometimes it is me--sometimes it is someone else.)

From the Land of Lincoln


These are from the same farm over in Illinois...



I have always wondered about the story behind them.

Drive-by shot


This is a drive-by shot...from the photos around it is either Michigan or Wisconsin.  And I am thinking Michigan.

I was blank when it came to giving this photo a title...what would you call it?

Aged....


This almost looks like a sepia tone photo, doesn't it?

St. Mary's Village Church


We pass this church a couple times a year, but I have only ever attempted to take photos one time.

Waiting...


I have no choice but to wait for spring...whether patiently or not is another story.

Forge....


The forge my husband built/made for tempering his knife blades...not sure what the correct term is.

I posted it in use HERE.

What remains...


Before long, these will be a thing of the past...at least in my yard, for a few months.

Cuties...


Aren't they cute...looks like they are playing King of the Mountain!


I don't know who won.

Cicada


What do you think...I think they are kind of pretty and kind of creepy at the same time.
