What a great shot! That magnificent looking horse, with all it's strength, grazing peacefully next to the newborn fawn. Wow. I always am amazed at how Ma Nature finagles moments like that.

Mike, . .The rackies will do it everytime! Several years ago, they took a racoon census for the Portland area. Their final figure was set at over 250,000!

Al, . .I agree with Mike, . .that has to be one great picture of a mom with her adopted foal!

Out for a drive this evening, about an hour before sundown the Doll and I saw this scene in a freshly harvested wheat field: A pair of Sandhil Cranes and a spotted fawn as her white tail mother sprints to the shadows:

Karl,

Those cranes are either exceptionally large or that fawn is exceptionally small. Thanks for sharing a great picture.

Very cool photo, Karl. Who would have thought that cranes would invade a tent? Suprise!

I obviously do not have a life. If you look at the center of this picture and slightly down, guess what you see. A lightning bug. Hey, don't laugh. Have you tried taking a picture of a lightning bug. Next to impossible; for anyone that has a life that is.

This Past March, a summer house next to my house had some new residents for Spring rental.
I was able to get the trust of the mother and was about 60 feet when I took these phots of the Mother and her 4 offspring. Needless to say, there were 3 neighborhood cats that went missing.

When on one of our train vacations, in Wyoming, we ran across the Pronghorn. Boy they are fast!

Hi Allen,
Just out of curiosity how do they do a census count for racoons.
Can't see someone walking around to all the places racoons live to get a total.

Seriously, my daughter from Alaska who works for the National Forest Service took part in a census for eagles found in Chugach National Forest where she works and they did it by flying around in a helicopter counted them one by one.

Seems like a waste of taxpayer dollars to me but then Alaska is noted for wasting taxpayer dollars.

Bonnie found this gal chomping on our tomato plants. Mother nature isn't always pretty.
