Morning Light on the Leaves

The light just hit a few leaves making them appear to have a yellowish hue.

Look Who Came Over For Lunch

This Doe browsed her way past our back door at about 12:20PM this afternoon.  I looked up from my tablet and there she was.  I could not get a front on shot as long as I waited.  She was about four paces off our back deck.

JUBILEE COLLEGE … Jubilee College State Park

Jubilee College was founded in 1839 by Episcopal Bishop Philander Chase, opened in 1840, and discontinued educating after his death in 1862.  Over the years you’ve seen numerous images of animals and the grounds themselves but never any of the college itself until this posting.  Honestly, I do not know if they’re still conducting tours.  I was fortunate to see the inside back in the late 1960’s or early 70’s, my memory is a bit clouded on the date.  There are classrooms, sleeping quarters and the Bishop’s office as I remember.  Bishop Chase also founded Kenyon College in Ohio prior to founding Jubilee Clllege in Illinois.

For more detailed info, if interested, you can search, Jubilee College, in Wikapedia.

Beautiful Doe

This pretty gal was outside our kitchen window this morning.  My wife, Jean was washing dishes, looked up, yelled Dan come with your camera there’s a Doe out here.  I grabbed my Samsung Tablet and took these images.

Female Cardinal on her Nest

4-16-2020  Well, she’s on the nest for the second day in a row.  She disappeared for a day or so.  We had a littlet snow.  Tonight we could get three to five inches.  I don’t know if the eggs will make it.   Meanwhile, I don’t know where the male flew off to.  We haven’t seen him feeding her. We’ll keep our fingers crossed.

The Cardinal and her little Family


 

SHE’s in there!  It’s hard to shoot through glass at an angle. I’m afraid these images won’t break the bank.  Whatever!  Hopefully, I’ll be able to get outside and take some decent images before everyone is fone.

4-10-2020  In the past few days I’ve been amazed, along with my wife, Jean, watching a Female Cardinal, slowly but doggedly, build a nest for her coming youngsters.  The nest is being built not 15 feet from our sliding glass door – and on top of a low schrub.  She is very diligent in her efforts.  Placing little sticks and other materials ever so gently into place.  Then she’ll scoot about creating a rounded bottom where she’ll slide back and forth smoothing out a round egg laying spot for her and her coming brood. Meanwhile, her mate, the dashing Red Male, sits guarding the whole business about 20 to 30 feet away in a tree.  This entire labor continues on and off during the daylight hours.  When evening approaches the two of them disappear until the next day.  When I first look out in the morning – at first light, she’s usually on rhe nest.

4-11-2020  It’s another day and our female is on and off the nest.  No sign yet she’s started a family.  May be ro early?

4-12-2020 More to come!

Honeysuckle – One of my Nightmare’s

Yesterday I posted an image of Spring Popping Out along the Valley/Ravine.  This morning I’m posting another bush that’s close to our back door – same plant variety.

It just dawned on me it may be HONEYSUCKLE.  Why do I have a problem with honeysuckle?  I’m very allergic to the powerful scent it puts out in the Spring.  This is the first Spring in our Condo.  I know, to most people it is a wonderful scent.  Now I’ve got that out of the way!  Many of you know I spend most of the end of October till sometime in early May inside due to the outside temperarures.  Most of my images during that period are shot through my windows.

Now, this condition is due to a military service related injury that left my sinuses and surrounding nerves completely out of sync with my brain. (literally)  MOVING ON … So now I’ll spend and additional month or more in the house due to the Honeysuckle scent.  If it sounds like I’m crying, I’m not. Just disgusted.  I am use to it, after all, since I’ve had the problem since 1975 – actually 1965  but that’s a story for another time.  I even wrote a One–Act Play about it.  Just never dawned on me that honeysuckle would be growing right outside my back door.  Thought I’d be outside sooner this year.

NUTS!

How”s your day goin?🤔
