A still pool in the creek reflects the sky and trees around it while ripples from minnows disturb the surface.

Flopsy the sow had her mud bath and then was in the mood to visit Ollie the Boar. Unfortunately there is a barrier in the way...a fence I was in the process of making taller, so she wouldn't be able to leap over, once she'd satisfied herself she couldn't crawl under.

Using a JD mower conditioner to drop the middle of a small hay field.

I think this bald eagle must've tried to catch some little creature hiding under some loose hay and got a bit tangled up. He spent several minutes picking at the tangle and trying to hop out of it, finally he just flew away.

We humans aren't the only ones glad that the hay is off the field and in the barn.

Several deer were eating grass and forbs during the cool of the morning.

The piglets are 25 days old now and very active. They take mud baths, root in the dirt, use the cow's scratching post and fight with each other for every slight, real or imagined.

12 day old piglets nursing. Stubby is a very good mamma pig.

Stubby is a first time mother. She had 8 lively piglets less than 24 hours ago.

A vulture watches from atop a power pole while a raven carries off a large rat.

One of a pair of ravens that live in the area. They will take eggs that are left where they can see them. Since they harass the bald eagle that comes by looking for lunch occasionally, I don't begrudge them a few.

View from my Window: One winter morning I saw a large cat in the field across the road. I did a double take when I realized it was considerably larger than the feral domestic cat that lives in the area. He spent about 20 minutes in the area, looking for voles or rabbits, even jumping onto an old trailer frame for a better view. Then he disappeared into the brush by the creek.

Just a frog...sitting on a log. My son and I were walking the creek looking for driftwood and spotted this little guy just sitting on a precariously balanced log (actually it was a big stick!). He didn't seem fazed by the camera at all...even when it was right in his face.

View from my Window. This young coyote hasn't learned to be wary yet and was hunting in the middle of the field. He ignored vehicles passing by, but did flee when one would stop. I thought he looked quite pleased with himself after he successfully caught a small animal and gulped it down.
