After showing you the ugly side of nature last week I thought it would be good to show you the gentler side to start this week. This cow and calf were standing just off the side of the road in the fog and rain. The weather did not provide the best for photographic opportunities but I did not have many chances to get fawns with spots so I fired away recording what I could.
Can you believe that tomorrow will be September already? I am not ready for summer to end or to close the pool. With Shane going back to school last Wednesday I went back to work last Thursday night ending my annual summer vacation. This week I will begin working full tours again until next June. I guess I need to look at the the up side of winter, football and hockey starts and we love hockey. This year I will be playing ice hockey with the Harrisburg Fire Department team and I am really looking forward to it, now not to get hurt and have to use sick leave. The wildlife gets active and I am planning trips already to the Shenandoah mountains, back to Elk County for the Elk rut (no Yellowstone this year), and just finding places around home to hopefully photograph some wildlife. We may even run back down to Florida in March for a cold break and to photograph birds and take in some baseball spring training. I am starting to look forward to next summer already.
