I love the photos. Actually, overcast or rainy can actually make for better photos. You don't have any harsh shadows.

Rick, how wonderful to get to see such beautiful animals so close. DH and I were driving with one of our exchange students in the Smoky Mountains in western Virginia and came upon a bear sitting on the road! I was so transfixed, I didn't get my camera out for a photo! After a moment, it got up and ambled away. Pretty cool 😎

We spent the last week at my in-laws house in Michigan. When he retired, they expanded their summer vacation cottage on one of the ubiquitous lakes, added a large garage and moved there. After cooking all day, I relaxed and read in the gazebo in the back yard.

Every time a see a picture of a moose, I feel a connection.

I weighed 10 lbs 11 oz at birth and my hateful teenage half sister filled out all my birth announcements. She added "what a moose" on all of them. She started out being a lousy sister and nothing ever changed.

Great pictures everyone! I love that beautiful Gazebo GG! I always dreamed of having one.

This little lady turkey wandered through the yard last week. I'm really not that far out in the country -- she was a big surprise.

Nice pic, Lizzie!

I had peacocks earlier this Spring. I thought I had a pic, I'll need to check Shrek's computer.

Nice pics, guys!

Meese can turn into evil creatures. I read something yesterday that talked about how after kicking, goring, and stomping you, they'll plant your ragged corpse on their antlers.

I've seen a couple swimming up at the lake years ago. Moose that is, not corpses.

Great photos, as usual, Rick.

Dawg, those caterpillars are a wee "eww" since they're the wrong kind. Otherwise, I'd say they are cute.

GG, that is a pretty setting in spite of the fact that it's Michigan. (What else would you expect from a native Ohioan. Go Buckeyes!)

Good grief, Kayelle, what an awful thing to say by your evil step-sis. I think we should start calling you Cinderella.

Gobble-gobble, lizzie. We used to get a lot of those, but no more. I guess some of them retired to FL.
