"By the Wooded Pond"

4 posts in this topic

This evening I took a weekend walk into a mature wooded area and came across a small secluded pond with some wildlife....almost has it's own ecosystem! grin....I did see a yellow headed blackbird near this pond but he spotted me first...haven't seen one up in this area for quite some time.... few photos from a few hours ago...

Red Baneberry: area was loaded with these,nice to look at but certainly are poisonous(digiscoped)



white baneberry:(also poisonous):


painted turtles enjoying the quite pond this evening:(6 totaled on various logs)


shorebird of some sort,(Sandpiper I think)


the raspberries are ripening:

Nice captures Johnny! My favorite is the white Baneberry. We're usually over run with yellow headed black birds, but not this year? confused I can't say whether it's simply circumstances or there' other reason's unknown to me.

    • mine has been put to bed too, the sled cause of the lack of snow I gave to the kids and grand kids last year.  Just the wheeler  left for winter.
    •   I'll help you here, but you're going to have to call the nurse to wipe yourass.
    • So, how many other votes, in a state where vote fraud is a way of life even though the establishment denies it, got changed?  And did they undo the fix as soon as Moynihan walked out the door?     Sounds to me like, at the least, some folks ought to lose their job.  Maybe the feds should launch an investigation under the voting rights act or one of those things.     Ha Ha, like that is going to happen. 
    • That's what I asked, whether the stories were different or just the headlines.   Bear stepped in on Jiggy's team and said they aren't going to bother to answer.    So, since you googled it, you must have a source and the answer to my question.   Well? 
    • Chaws really hit it on the head, we are a very small market industry in regards to ice fishing. Even the walleye industry is small potatoes to advertisers compared to bass. In many cases if you're not 1 or 2 in your product line you're either a garage/hobby company or going broke. I get a kick looking at the intricate paint jobs on some of the tiny ice jigs that get sold for a couple dollars, no way can they justify the time. 
    • Couple more pics.  Got all the plastic on and the floor insulated. 
    • Rather ride my Harleys to but its Minnesota and if nothing else its going to get cold soon. Put my bikes into storage and the snowmobile is siting in their place and ready to go. I know its going to get cold I just hope we get some snow with it this year. Sure would like to get more than the usual 2-300 miles on the sled this year.
    • No it'sreal and it's different same day editions of the paper.  Easily googleable.   It's basically what happens when your boy's policies change a dozen times over the course a few hours.
