Are you a big fan of wildlife or more of an urban bunny? Today is #nationalwildlifeday. I live in the suburbs, so I see a little of it. I can't take credit for these photos though. My friend and neighbor Glory is the photographer. Isn't she fantastic? Those photos are all in our neighborhood (my friend's backyard is practically a wildlife refuge). She has the patience of a saint and waits for the perfect pictures to come to her. To be frank, I usually miss the picture.
Have you been to the Northwoods? That is the northern part of Wisconsin at the border of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I will be taking a trip to the Northwoods later in the next month to get my fix of nature and all its glory. I can't wait to go. I am a little afraid of bears. I have never run into them in the wild and don't know how to deal with them. Maybe I can sing them a lullaby and chase them off.
I dream of one day, when the kids are grown, retiring to a more rural area. Retiring may be overstating it, I will have a working retirement. I need to be doing something at all times! I can't imagine a life without communication and writing, whether it is working for someone else, writing books or blogging, I will never stop.
I live in an area where some wildlife that has not been chased off. We are almost overrun with bunnies and squirrels. There are even some fox and alligators. We also have all kinds of birds. The other day, I was out for a lovely evening walk, just before dark , and a bird almost flew into me! The funny part of the story is that it was a hawk carrying dinner. It flew directly across my path towards the street. It must have miscalculated the distance of the oncoming car because it veered off at the last minute. It came straight at me! I even got a close look at the gutted rat it was carrying. 🤢 Luckily, it turned before I got splashed with guts. Lol I laughed the rest of the way home.
Have you had any close calls with nature?
