The oaks are turning color slower than normal this year, drought related I'm sure, but finally they are turning! 

Just over the Horizon

Is a John Deere Combine!  I love the lines left behind after the crops have been harvested.

A herd of wild corn bails wander a field in Story County, Iowa. Approach with caution, they can be quite dangerous when spooked, rolling here and there with no particular destination in mind!

The Marsh is Green!

Well after it dried up it rained, but not enough to fill the marsh again, now it's filled with vegetation most of it appears to be fox tail.

Bjorkboda marsh all greened up, can't wait for the rains to fill it again.

Wind Damage at the Marsh

Lots of trees down at the marsh, we had some storms rip through here last week with high winds. 

One of the younger trees also came down in the wind storm.

This one was acting pretty confused, hanging out in the middle of the road for several minutes before finally flying off.

Wild Turkey

Wild Turkey looks to be a hen, I really had to work to get this shot as she was a good 300 yards away, so if it's a male well my apologies!


A young White Tail Deer, somewhere in Story County, Iowa.

She was running like she was injured.

Snack Time

A young male red squirrel eating red oak tree blossoms!  The tree is covered, and heavily, in blossoms this spring.

Went out to the marsh to listen to the spring peppers today, took some photos and started dinking with them in photoshop.
