There’s a whole family of red-headed woodpeckers out there.

Scenes from Pasture

Pretty sure this was right before they flew the coop.

A squirrel was enjoying the walnuts that grow in the pasture.

I think there were a pair of newly fledged barn swallows (but not from the nest above).  At least, I was getting dived at by another one, and these two just sat there unconcerned about my presence.

We’ve had enough rain that it’s still green and pretty out in pasture right now.  There are lots of wildlife too.

Flying Things

26 Jul

I’ve seen lots of butterflies this year.  Last week’s heat was brutal.  I think it was even too hot for the flying insects because they were way more cooperative than usual when I wanted to take their picture.

It also gave me an excuse to rest under the shade trees while I was checking goats.  I’m very thankful that our temperatures and humidity have returned to more normal levels.

I do hope you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The items for this week are at the top of my side bar.
