Oak Hammock Marsh on a Cool & Windy Day

I haven’t been to Oak Hammock Marsh in many years.  The last few times were only because the parrot club was having a display there and as a member, I would take some of my birds out to take part.  The club still has displays there, but I haven’t had any birds for several years… Continue reading Oak Hammock Marsh on a Cool & Windy Day

I was still at Lake Audy Dam at the end of the last post and was enjoying the scenery and the birds, when I saw something swimming off in the distance.  It was actually more just the water moving that I saw.  I zoomed in on it with my camera and was surprised to see… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 3, part 2

Although it was very cloudy again this morning, I was up and out of the B&B first thing in the morning and headed to Grayling Lake in the hopes the clouds would clear enough for morning sunrise pictures.  It was foggy and I remembered getting some beautiful foggy sunrise pictures there a couple of years… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 3, part 1

I started… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 2, part 1

After exiting the Bison enclosure, I headed to the Honeycomb Bed & Breakfast to get checked in.  I had a tour of the place, got the pictures all loaded onto my laptop to clear the camera card and relaxed a bit before heading back out. First stop was the Wishing Well, and the sprinklers had… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 1, part 4

There is only 1 stream that we cross over on the road to the Bison Enclosure, and I always have to stop for a picture – just one side and I’ll get the other side on the way out. The Bison weren’t hiding at all this trip in, and were actually quite close to the… Continue reading Riding Mountain National Park in Early Fall – day 1, part 3
