This morning I had an early start with a couple of friends to go birding in a local park. The birds but were hiding high and dry in the trees. Peter Rabbit was munching on some freshly rained upon grass and froze when he saw us. We birded a bit, but no great bird photos to really show for today. However, have I told you about my fear of snakes. Yep, hate snakes. Don’t like snakes. Don’t trust snakes. Snakes creep me out.
Last Sunday I was on the same trail and saw a snake in the same place. But this one was a different one as he was smaller. Also frozen in the warming sun, I kept an eye on him after taking his photo. Just making sure he didn’t make a move on me.
The House Wrens were singing their heart out, constantly making me thing they were some cool warbler. Talk about singing it loud….
After the park visit, I headed down to the barn. There is a field that I pass along the way and I’ve noticed some new foals in the field near their mother. One was posing perfectly, but by the time I got out of the car with camera in hand he decided to lay down by his mother. Cute little bugger though. I thought of jumping the fence to play with him. But perhaps it was best that I stayed away. It’ll be fun to watch him grow.
And so was my morning. There is something grounding about being outside with nature. I always come home with big smile on my face and a calm spirit.
A great walk – you have lovely pathways. ❤
As beautiful as yours my dear.
Oh yes!! We live in a beautiful world! Always a joy stopping by….
Great walk and photos！ I love these animals, hope you can take more photos. Have a good time. 🙂
I agree Lily ! I need to get out more to photograph. This weekend should be a good opportunity.
Wonderful! Looking forward to your new photograph. 😛
These are fantastic! …even the snake, lol.
You are so sweet! Thank you!
The rabbit shot is great with the dew tipped grass and cold muted tones and the House Wren is fantastic as well caught mid song.
Wow, thank you so very much for your kind words Ben. Appreciate your visit.
Snakes may creep you out, but you still manage to photograph them well. 😉
Funny as my friends commented on the same thing too. 🙂
Lovely photos. It was a very productive walk.
Thank you so much, it was a lovely walk indeed.
Cute rabbit…….nasty snake
HAHAHA !! Awesome Mark.
Love the walk and these beautiful photographs. Our rabbit friend of three years (can’t get rid of the guy) has claim our yard and gardens as his haven, imagine what he has done to many of our perennials and grass ~
I can’t even imagine ! Can’t you just feed him and fill his belly with rabbit food? Might save your gorgeous garden. Either that or get a cat.
If I could just avoid the snake I would love to follow. Nice photos.
LOL ! A fellow snake hater. Love it!
Nature! Why on earth did we ever go an live in cities? I escape to the country as often as I can.
Beautiful shot! And how cute the rabbit is!
I love bunnies. I didn’t realize that these are actually Cotton Tail bunnies. And I thought that name was only in children’s books.
Just wonderful!!! Love them all.
Thanks Christina ! How are you my dear? Where are you?
Hey chickie! Lookie here, I’m finally replying to my comments — ooopsies. I’ll get there one day. Just overwhelmed with life and work at the moment…. Desperate to get back to the blog at photos, though. Have a bit of a stockpile! 🙂
