This blog is about my garden and the outdoors. I am new to photography but I am trying to show some of the pretty things that grow here in Michigan. I love the wild things who visit me and I dont mind if they eat a bit here and there. I like it more if they let me take their picture. As time goes on I think I will try to show you around the beautiful area that I live in as well as my garden. I try to use my own pictures as much as possible but will also use pictures from the web. If I inadvertently use your photo or work without permission please email me and I will remove it or give credit if you prefer. I will give credit when I know who the owner is. I would ask that anyone using my pictures do the same.

Had to get out of the house................

Its been so cold, so wet with snow and then windy on top of that. So today it had sort of stopped for awhile and so we took Tristen down to Logans Landing again. We just wanted to get him out to run (sort of like a puppy, he needed to run)free for awhile.
Run he did......while I looked for wild fowl.

I really wanted to go and see if there were any good pictures. I missed out on the misty day so was hoping for something good today.
The Swans were looking pretty, one was napping.

There were plenty of ducks, and the Mallards are always busy and pretty and they certainly were busy.

This one I had to look up and I think it may be a Bufflehead.

This one I could not find either.... there are so many kind of like it. I think its a golden eye........

The Swan kept a close eye on me because I was getting close to the water............I was knee deep in the snow. In my shoes I might add (and no socks)my feet got rather wet.

I remember going down to Logans Landing for lunch when I was working. I had just got out of the car and a bunch of Swans came in to land,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,I swear one of them about parted my hair. All I saw was the pads of it's big feet as it just skimmed over me and landed on the ice in the parking lot.
