I have probably posted this before, but I had mentioned to a fellow blogger that I would post another image that I took in the National Bison Range in Montana.
I kept a VERY safe distance from these beautiful elk, this is not the kind of animal you want to get close to.This was one of the most beautiful moments I’ve ever experienced.
While visiting my son and daughter-in-law in Montana some time back, we went to the National Bison Range. The bison were all grouped up in one small area of the range, but out of nowhere, elk would pop up.
The scary thing about some of these elk is that they walk on their tiptoes. One minute they’re not there and the next minute…surprise! Without using just their toes, how else could they sneak up so quietly? I admit, I’ve never seen them walking on tiptoe but that doesn’t mean they don’t. Just because we can’t SEE little green men walking amongst us, you wouldn’t deny their existence would you? I rest my case.
Now if you will excuse me, I need to go take my invisible dog for a walk…anybody out there have chocolate? I think I might be a quart low…
It’s an Evening Grosbeak!
While visiting our son in Montana, I spent some time sitting like a statue watching the bustling activity at their bird feeder.
There were two of these beauties peeking at me from behind the leaves of a lilac bush. Eventually they decided that I had no feathers OR wings, so I wasn’t a true threat and they popped into view.
We’re actually having a winter this year…lucky for me because the deer have begun to pass closer to the house. They’re smelling the alluring scent of birdseed with a side of corn. I’ve actually considered building a drive thru window onto the house…then the deer can just come up to the window, place their order and leave happy. I would definitely add a happy meal toy to their bag of sunflower seeds or whatever it is they ordered, you want to keep your customers coming back.
Hmmmmm…this would mean that I would have to wear some kind of uniform when I worked at the window…I’d need to look professional after all. I’m thinking a pink tutu and the REALLY awesome cowgirl boots I bought in Montana. I know the deer wouldn’t see that part of my uniform but I could stick my leg out the window every now and then to show them my boots.
See you all later, I’m off to cut a hole in the side of the house for the ordering window and I need to get it done before hubby gets home.
