I am thankful to enjoy the many freedoms I have in this wonderful country and for those who were willing to sacrifice so I could. Hope you have a “beary” good Memorial Day!

Funny Looking Owl

“Funny Looking Owl”

Recently, I went hiking off the orange trail at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia to find owls in their nesting cavities. I came up short but was delighted to find this little critter.

Pondering what to title the piece, my first thought was, “You are not an Owl!” But, I kind of like my husbands better, so I used his.

Check Out My Legs!


“Check Out My Legs!”
Cooper’s Hawk – eyas

I saw the Cooper’s hawk building this nest a while ago, so I decided to photograph it the last few times I was at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia.

The eyas (a.k.a baby hawks) were very active. I thought one was going to fledge, but after a closer look, I still see a lot of pin feathers.

It is amazing when wildlife comes this close to you while in Cades Cove. This buck was photographed from my car while driving on the main loop. I could barely fit him into my frame.

Look What We Can Do!

 Black bear cubs in Cades Cove, Tennessee

My husband and I took our first trip to Cades Cove in Tennessee for a few days. There is an 11-mile road through the park and two side road you can travel on to see all kinds of wildlife. But, the big reason everyone goes is to see the black bear.

The bears cause quite a havoc as they live their daily lives roaming around which sometimes happens to be right in front of cars. A bear jam is not something you eat; it’s tons of cars pulled off the side of the road to see the bear.

We were there for three days and only had one day of good bear sightings. We hiked in the woods to see what we could find one day and as we were getting into our car, an older lady told as there was a bear off the road to the left. I am thankful she told us where one was.

This is two of Momma bear Hazel's cubs. She is the mom of four adorable cubs!
