July Frogs 2012

These were taken in July.  The first 2 shots are bull frogs (i think) and the last 3 are Leopard Frogs.  I really like the green ones, they are fun to shoot but a little harder to find.

Snowy river 2011

These are from last year but I never got around to posting them.  It's the river by our cottage all snowy.  I haven't gotten out there yet this year.  So peaceful looking.

Random river scenes

Sorry for the delay in posts but I have been down while I do some computer upgrades. Which are still under way - I am on the installment plan.  :)  These are some random fall river scenes that I have had back logging.  It's has finally snowed in the northwoods so hopefully I will get out and get some new snows shots soon.

July Osprey Nest

This is the Osprey nest this past July.  Sorry I didn't post them sooner but I was back logging.  I think that is both adults that you see in the pictures.  I don't think you can see the babies yet.

Fall River

These are some shot of the river taken in October on a cold misty day.  It wasn't good on my camera but the shots turned out interesting.

Random Fall shots

 These are just some random shots I took this fall.

In North America, autumn is usually considered to start with the September equinox.[4] In traditional East Asian solar term, autumn starts on or around 8 August and ends on about 7 November. In Ireland, the autumn months according to the national meteorological service, Met √Čireann, are September, October and November.

Northwoods Marsh

On a guided hike I was told that Marshes don't freeze in the winter and stay warm all year round. A marsh is a type of wetland that is dominated by herbaceous rather than woody plant species.[1] Marshes can often be found at the edges of lakes and streams, where they form a transition between the aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.

Beaver Dam

There are been some debate for awhile, that these Beaver Dams can some times cause problems with some lake systems by stopping the nature flow of water making they lakes very weed and not ideal for some fish.
