Some Random Nature

Today I decided to show you some random nature stuff I found. This is a very good thing because I originally planned on making each of these an individual post. Instead, I'm going to take the lazy way out and give it all to you in one shot. And I think you'll like that.

The bird you see above is called a Myrtle Warbler. It's not the best picture of it, but it's the only one I have. And this is the only time I ever saw one of these birds. I didn't know what this bird was for awhile. And a search turned up nothing. Finally, my blogging friend Sharkbytes identified it for me. You can find a better picture she took here.

So why am I bringing you these geese? They are just two geese standing on top of Carpenter Lake Dam in Michigan. Well, What we have here are geese doing what geese do best. These poop machines are showing why so many people dislike them wherever they go.

I still like them though because rain always cleans the dam and they don't fill that nature park too much with their droppings. My friends the geese. They love what they do.

S is for snake. But after about one-tenth of a second, I knew this was not. What it is is a twig that looks like an S. So S is really for Sharkbytes because it was her that first looked for letters in nature, and now I do it too when I see something even close. I've been giving Sharkbytes lots of credit today so visit her blog when you're done here.

My last little prize for you today is this beautiful little chipmunk. I haven't seen a chipmunk in a long time. I don't think we have them around here. But when I did see them this little fella thought he could hide from me. But no little critter can long evade the watchful gaze of an Everyday Adventurer.

I tried to add one more picture for you, but blogger just wasn't cooperating anymore, so I guess it's time to stop. That's about as random as it gets. I'll talk to you later.


  1. That warbler is great!You found some treasures

  2. I loved your photos today! We don't have chipmunks here either. I don't think my human has ever seen one in person.

  3. I like random. You did good with it. I visit Sharkbytes all the time. I've tried to find the alphabet in nature but never did very good at it

  4. Random is good sometimes. This post was one of those times, Ratty.

  5. There are many pooping machines over here too.
    Like them or not, we just have to accept them.
    They are part of the nature.

  6. Fun post. The almost-Hidden chipmunk is cute. I have a love/hate relationship with Canada Geese. So handsome, such cute babies, but when we lived at the Lake we couldn't wear shoes our indoors after taking a walk.

    I'm a random blogger these days too...that's kind of how I live too.

  7. Sharkey is so good with her nature stuff...and you are close behind.

    The stick snake reminded me of this thing I saw on FB:

    I am scared of 3 types of snakes:
    1. Little snakes
    2. Big snakes
    3. Sticks that look like snakes


  8. Pretty tricky on the snake picture! I had to look twice, too, to see that it was not a snake. Enjoyed your pictures!

  9. What a wonderful photos!
    If I am not mistaken You liked my blog theme. It is name is Emporio. You can see and use it in blogger. There is in blogger

  10. Love your random nature shots! I don't see chipmunk here in Michigan!
