I have been blessed to have known these two people for nearly all my life.
We have enjoyed many a visit/hour lifetime together.
And let the dance begin
After our friend Ken posted what he and Susan had seen a 'big, black thing' sitting in one of the roosts 75 feet above the ground on June 8, I went back on Wed June 16. I did not expect to see much because bears are so camera-shy.
Even more shy are tigers, especially Canadian tigers in the wild:
When I saw the stripes moving in the undergrowth, I froze stock still and waited:
Would it step out into the clearing?
Nothing is sharp - was I really that nervous? Or was it the excitement?
A quick glimpse:
Still a lot of fuzz, but definitely not Snoopy -
However, finally my "luck" changed and I had some clear shots at the Canadian Tiger - a hard Tail to Swallow!
Better luck next time - WOB
I spent several hours walking alone yesterday. I took over 300 photos - so where to start?
This was the first one.
And it seemed to me then as now that my world is very strongly divided. I talked to this bird and it reassured me that it hoped to "make it". It gave me some hope, too. Maybe you will understand?

Not too far from where I live - looking South -
and looking North .
and looking East for the quest:
Arrowheads, up but not yet in bloom. Maybe between 30 and 50 per meter of ditch.
And in between:
And all in the name of Arrowheads:
Maybe in a couple more weeks there will be some flowers.
