Spring is popping out in Central Illinois

 

 

Spring is really starting to flourish in Central Illinois.  Everywhere green leaves our changing the landscape.  This image was shot right out our back door and all down the valley the color is the same.  Nice to see new life when the world is in such a chaotic state right now with the  Coronavirus.

I shot this image two evenings ago.  Every once in a while the sky just lights up.  I’ve posted similar shots in the past – as many of you know.

Bumlebee on a Cone Plant

This young bumblebee was busy gathering nectar a few days ago.  I’ve found, over the years, if you don’t disturb them while they gather, bumblebees just go about their business allowing you to get quite close – quietly.

Quiet Creek-No Deer Visible

IMG_0980

I shot this image on September 9th, 2010, in the early morning, at Jubilee College State Park outside Peoria, Illinois.  It was presented at an earlier date but was lost when my hard drive crashed – I did not have a Seagate stand alone, back up hard drive at the time.

It had rained the night before and the water was still a bit muddy from runoff.  Deer came to the water daily to drink back then and we could stop and observe them. Today, six years later, you’re lucky to see a deer. Some, State Genius, decided it was time to allow hunting during the month of January each year.  Having had my say, I understand deer need to be culled when they over populate an area. I won’t go into why as most of you know about disease … cattle, etc.  “I JUST DON’T LIKE IT.”  That doesn’t change the fact it must be done.  Each season in Illinois between 50 and 70 thousand deer are taken during the hunt.  “I still can’t wrap my  head around it.”
