PROTECTING THE NEST AND OTHER WILDLIFE

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Wildlife


I’m proud of this shot. It took place so far away from me that all I could see was some white feathers in the sun. I just ran the lens as far as it would go and hoped I would get something. I did. A once in a lifetime shot of a swan defending his nest again incoming geese. Ultimately, the geese left the pond, but the swans lost their nest and eggs.

On a less serious note, this week, Cee’s subject is wildlife. Although this probably doesn’t include The Duke, I think that might be an error. I’m pretty sure The Duke is a wild dog who decided it’s okay to live amongst humans where the food is better and you don’t get rained on while you nap.

Following are other wildlife I have encountered. Watch out for the lions and bears!

    1. I keep telling the world, but you are the ONLY one who listens.. They are as twins separated at birth. I think they only scare off other incipient wolfmen. And the bears from another galaxy (far, far, away)!
