Almost every night, I see bunnies under the apple trees. The little fluffy creatures eat the fallen apples. They hop around and play. Well, until I walk across the yard, then they just stare at me. If they feel I am getting too close, the little rabbits will quickly run into the nearby wooded area.
The Maple River is at low levels due to a lack of rain. The shallow water allows Herons and other water birds to search for food along the banks. I am amazed at how still these birds stand. But when a fish is near, they are quick to grab their meal.
Even though I hope for rain, I enjoy photographing these beautiful creatures. I could watch them for hours.
I recently purchased some photos from an auction site.
In this particular find, the back of the photo reads, “Some of the Fellows”.
Unfortunately, I do not have any more information. I am assuming, the group was in the military at the time of the photo. I cannot tell which branch. If someone can distinguish the uniforms, I would like to know the branch.
Michigan has been experiencing a cold snap the last few days. But the sunset tonight was absolutely beautiful. Of course, I only snapped a few photos. I just was not dressed warm enough to stand out there.
Did you know today, January 10th is National Save the Eagles Day? I could not imagine life without these majestic birds to photograph in the wild. I could photograph Eagles all day long. They are beautiful to watch even when they are munching on their latest carcass.
The Bald Eagle and the Golden Eagle are the only two found here in the USA. I applaud all conservation efforts to save the Eagles all around the world.
The photo does not have any identifying marks of the people. But there is a stamp on the back from the processing service, Brown Photo Service, Minneapolis, Minn. Then, under the stamp is the date, November 19, 1942.
Yes, the photo could be straightened. But I did not want to lose the car in the background. Does anyone know the type of car? I am horrible with old car names.
The photo reminded me of my grandfather who hunted a lot. He always seemed to have a cigarette in his mouth too.
