One can't argue with up-north Michigan for a look at some nature, especially when you are right on the lake. I was so delighted when a hummingbird decided my hanging petunias were it's cuppa tea!
I'm not very good getting birds in flight -- and hummingbirds are always in flight, so these pleased me. Maybe someday a camera fast enough to "freeze" the wings!
I get a big kick out of watching our ducks. There is a delightful family that comes by regularly, swimming together and then stopping on the beach to forage whatever it is they look for there!
But sometimes just the mama ducks hang out.
I love it when they do their synchronized swimming moves!
Duckrobatics! A perfect 10!
These guys count as nature and sometimes as pests! As long as they hang on the neighbor's beach or the middle of the lake, I can admire their majesty. Come too close and we have words!
Sometimes we go to the Elk Park and check out the action. There wasn't much the night we were there. These were all taken with the zoom and the elk was about two or three blocks away.
Still, he's quite remarkable, with his fuzzy antlers.
I'll have to go back when he's closer to the fence.
We also saw some of the white deer but they move pretty fast!
Nature is more than a bit domesticated here, but no one will deny that the little nipper Lizzie can't be a wild woman now and then!
I leave you with one of up north's nature spectaculars.
A perfect sunset.
