Bee School

Saturday I attended a beekeeping school.
I've decided that beekeeping will be my next adventure!

This hive was in the raffle.
I love how it is painted

Some other raffle items.

This bee suit was a high priority purchase for me!

Lunch was served, including honey & biscuits.

A Snapshot of Late February

The woods are pretty dull this time of year,
especially since we haven't had much snow & ice to vary the scenery.
Here's some recent photos.

A cocoon


Mossy log

Pink clouds

The crescent moon & Venus, in the lower left.

And the one constant in my life,
a hungry horse waiting for dinner!

Deer Skull

Walking in the woods near the end of winter, 
I see signs of the cycle of life, 
such as this deer skull.

Can you Guess?

Can you guess what this is?
I'll give the answer tomorrow.

OK, the answer is....
a muskrat tail as he's diving below the water's surface.
First one I've seen this year.

Whitetails - Up Close & Personal

Hunting season ended 6 weeks ago
and the deer are becoming more confident.
Last night about a dozen deer were grazing in the yard.

I was able to get some good shots through the window.

Light Snow

The first February snow occurred last night.
Here's some photos from my walk.
