Nature Walks – A 2-Walk Kind of Day

I haven’t been cooking for the past couple of days, but I will be later on today. I will have some more yummy recipes coming your way tomorrow. I have been out walking though. I try to get in my walks everyday, or at least on most days.

Today, we did two walks. We took Vinnie out for a longer walk, then came home and “traded” dogs. Little Juni Bug can’t keep up with her brother yet, try though she may, so we take her out on separate walks. We tried taking them out together yesterday, but that didn’t work out so well. It won’t be too long before Juni Bug will be able to keep up with her big brother though.

The lakes have been quiet lately. But I always have my camera just in case. Even on the days when you don’t think you will see anything, there is always something to see, and quite often, even something new.

On recent walks, there have been more hawks,

more American Kestrels,

more ducks and geese,

and more Belted Kingfishers.

And today, we had some new visitors on the lakes as well. We had some snow geese. We have lived here 14 years, and this is the first time we’ve seen the snow geese. They were trying to blend in with the Canadians, but they weren’t doing such a good job of it.

But as much as I LOVE seeing all these beautiful critters that call our area home, my favorite critters are the ones I call my own.

Juni Bug is getting used to the snow.

Life is short. Take it all in and enjoy each and every moment.

      1. Those photos are amazing, Bird Watching is quite famous back in Ohio. Juni Bug is precious, enjoy her while she’s still a puppy… soon she’ll be jumping all over Vinnie to go for a walk w/her big brother!

      2. Thank you. I enjoy birds and nature photography in general. I always have. Juni Bug has already grown so much just in the 2 1/2 weeks we’ve had her. You’re right. it won’t be much longer. She loves her big brother. he tolerates her at best. 🙂
