While I was at the Watershed Nature Center this morning I was watching some birds at a feeder. As I turned around this is what I saw. Thankfully the standoff ended peacefully.
Another bird to add to my Ebird list. These Wilson’s Snipes are hanging around near the Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary in West Alton MO.

As I was out walking in the SIUE Nature Reserve I stumbled across this doe and her fawn. We watched each other for a few moments then mom had enough and they went back into the trees. It is moments like this that make getting up early and going out to shoot photos worth it.

One of the crazy rabbits that are chasing each other around my backyard. This one stopped to take a breather.
