While visiting Cornell University’s Plantations (which are several different gardens that are open to the public), I photographed this deer in the setting sun.  She looks like she is wearing camouflage with the leaves from the tree casting shadows on her.

If only we could get her to pack boots. ;)

Gearcor owners, Carol and Pete extended their family with a couple of labrador pups.  They were planning on one new dog but ended up bringing them both home. 

 Can you blame them? 

Meet Sophie

and Blondie,


The girls happily come along to work each morning.  They are a delight to all of us there. 

  If we could only get them to pack some boxes….

Nothing like a bunch of snow to brighten up a cold winter day!  The reflections in the glass made it twice as pretty. 

Thunder watched from under the cover of the front porch. 

Smart dog!

Took a walk down by the river yesterday and was lucky enough to happen upon some ducks.  To spite the frigid temperatures they appeared to be enjoying life. 

 I was  happy to take a couple of photos and get back into my warm car.  I bet they wished they could do the same,

 well… the warm car part anyway.

  I happened upon this eagle last spring while out in the woods.  It was quite a thrill! Such an awesome creature.

They look like spots. web-white-roses-076

You should be.




 they are spots.

The picture at the top is of my Aunt a long time ago( She’s 88 now).  I think she is sporting the height of outdoor fashion.  That’s her daughter in the car with the silly spotted shorts.  That photo always gives me a laugh.  I couldn’t stop with just this picture though, not when I have a spotted dog.

Thunder is our English Setter,  not a long haired dalmation like many seem to think.

Grand Dog Fred and Granddaughter Gracie had their first visit with Santa today.  Couldn’t resist sharing this for Camera Critters.  Hey are those Muck Boots from Garden Shoes Online that Santa is wearing?
