Thank you! It's been more than a year since we have seen any of our coyote friends at the park, so it was a nice surprise to see this one hanging out in the meadow so close to the entrance road that we were walking in on.

Very nice Wile E Coyote photo! I enjoyed the video (on FB) as well!

When we're out & about we don't see a lot of wild life. The occasional squirrel or chipmunk. Mostly people with their dogs. I'll post some photos of fall in the Kettle Morraine when they load...

There is no such thing as too many pretty pictures!

I think fall is our consolation for having to endure winter... :scarey:

Those photos were taken in a lovely county park nearby. We live in the Kettle Moraine and the Ice Age trail runs through it.

If anyone recalls Glass House from TORc, he's a wonderful photographer who lives out east. His nature photos are gorgeous and he's also into night sky photography. He took this stunning photo not long ago.

It was in the upper 70's today (and may have reached 80!!) Unheard of in October. It was a glorious day so off we went for another hike on the Ice Age trail in the Kettle Moraine and finally... we had a 'Today's Friend'!! I don't know why we don't see more deer when we're out hiking, maybe because people walk dogs on the trails?

Love all the fall photos. We don't get those masses of vibrant color.
