Wildlife at Peeble's Island

Popster is in Florida.....freezing his butt I might add.....so Molly & I are footloose & fancy free.
Friday was a fairly nice day so I decided to go to Peeble's Island.  Jessica & boyfriend Tyler tagged along.  Tyler is as much into photography as me so he was like a little kid in a candy shop
If you look closely here this tree was home to lots & lots of crows.....a murder of crows!

We spotted what we thought was a pair of bald eagles.....that was when I wanted to tie a rope on Tyler so he didn't fall over the edge in excitement.
My tree is still surviving!
Watching Tyler in action made me realize I was watching myself!  The two of us would have driven Popster crazy!
A couple of deer down by the water
This one decided to flee


As we were driving away I had to slam on the brakes & throw the car in park because Tyler spotted this.
We're thinking a golden eagle??  I didn't have my zoom lens with me so this is a good as I could get. 

Then came the thrill of the day.  We were driving home along the river when we saw a couple cars pulled over so I did another slam-park & jumped out of the car,  Not more than 8 feet away was a bald eagle perched in a tree....it was incredible to see it up close but unfortunately I wasn't quick enough to get a picture before he flew away.

  1. Love the photos. I'm guessing by the confession of the slam-park technique, that Popster is here in Florida getting treatment for Whiplash. Crazy photogs

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Thanksgiving

We went to JoAnne & Peter's for thanksgiving this year.  They were cooking dinner & Josh & Carol were going to be there
 Molly is always game for a road trip!


 It was gray , gloomy day & kinda chilly by the river
 Sadie is such a cutie
 We couldn't get Addie to pose as cute
 Josh got there first as Carol had to work......these dogs just love him

 I forgot to take pics of the table but everything was so good & JoAnne made apple pie!
 We spent the night & left for home after breakfast on Friday.  Our GPS sent us home a different way & we crossed the Tappan Zee bridge.  They are building a new one so lots of work going on

 One of those big cranes toppled over a few weeks ago.....they are so tall
 Look at the size of that one!
 As you know I love bridges
Love

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty


 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!



   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again




 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter





 This sums up the whole walk!
Love
