About As Wild As It Gets
The wildlife is abundant here in South Dakota....
Not the crazy-party kind of wild life...
but, the calming-bird-singing-nature-sounds-frog-jumping-
where the deer and the antelope play kind of wildlife!!!
Sall has even put down the shot gun and ventured out with me and the cameras!
Everywhere we drive, we are seeing deer, pheasants, hawks, owls, ducks and geese.
There is more water standing in these parts than ever,
so naturally the ducks are plentiful,
however you have to be fast if you want to catch one on camera!
Last night we spotted these pheasants up in the tree (which is a little unusual)
maybe there was a coyote lurking in the corn?
They had to be either very scared or very stupid...
they just sat there watching us watching them.
I love watching the cedar wax wings through my kitchen window.
These fellas and a wood pecker have been munching
on the cedar berries for a few weeks now.
I hope there are enough berries to carry them through the winter,
my guess is they'll be moving on when the cold winter winds come.
I hope you have a chance to get out and enjoy a little "wildlife"!!
Have a Happy Weekend!
