Chipmunk On A Log

Slightly obscured by several sticks, I just really liked the colors in this photo.

Funny Bone

If you spend a lot of time in the woods, you will eventually stumble across an animal that has left this world for the next. I recently found this small pile of bones while walking through a local state park and I noticed that one of them happened to be smiling at me. This was obviously this animal's "funny" bone.

Though this bone looks funny to me, I guess it's not exactly humerus

A Squirrel Ham

Most of the animals I run into in the woods are very shy and skittish but, every once in a while, I happen across one that actually seems to want its photo taken. This was one of those cases. This squirrel jumped out into the middle of the path I was on and walked with me until we got near this bench. It then hopped up onto the bench and gave me that, "I'm ready for my close-up" look. I probably could have gotten it to pose even longer but a herd of 25 to 30 runners was right behind us on the trail and that sound was even too much for a squirrel that wanted to be in the limelight. 

Rare - Somewhat Dangerous Animal

Legend has it that if you gaze directly into the eyes of this creature for too long, you will be turned into wood. Nemorosus Nemus Creatura can be found in remote wooded areas throughout the midwestern United States. While you should not look at them in the wild, looking at this photo won't hurt you--much...

R U Sleeping?

My dog drifts in & out of sleep while I try to get a photo with my phone.
