On the road again

Just can't wait to get on the road again
The life I love is makin' music with my friends
And I can't wait to get on the road again
On the road again
Goin' places that I've never been
Seein' things that I may never see again,
And I can't wait to get on the road again.

This map turtle appears to be a friend of Willie Nelson.
After photographing him I moved him to the side of the road.
He was about 1 1/2 inches long.

Now he's gone and done it. Cracked the side walk to get at the ants.

Not as crisp as I would like but it was taken through the window.
The flicker was exploiting a crack in the side walk to get an easy meal.

This is the second year that the orchard orioles have been coming to our feeders.
They were rarely seen up to a few years ago.

Killdeer have simple nests, a scoop out in gravel. Unfortunately they like gravel parking lots.
This puts their nests at risk from cars and people.

Rising slowly from the primordial ooze, the predator moves in search of food.
Be afraid, be very afraid.

I don't think we're in Kansas anymore

I would expect to see this in the far north but in southern Ontario?

How many miles per bag of dog food does this thing get?
