Every time Don goes out to the farm he comes back with stories of things he saw or did that day. Sometimes, similar to an eight year old boy coming home with a prized turtle found in a creek, he brings home souvenirs such as deer skulls, nests, or snake skins. Recently his prized possessions have been photographs.
The common thread in Don’s images is a “wow” effect. I think if his current farmer gig were to ever end, he could perhaps get a job with Ripley’s Believe It or Not. See if you don’t agree.
So we’ll start with two of the images he got from his game or trail camera this week.
That’s a bobcat. In daylight. I’d be happier knowing its home was the San Diego Zoo.
Animals #2 & 3
are just deer; HOWEVER, that buck is kind of big and the interaction between the two is pretty sweet.
So now some of Don’s cell phone photos …
That’s grass Don’s been mowing – the kind you probably have in your yard except about five feet taller.
That’s about a 5-6 foot snake. So you know how this blog is named “photographs in need of explanation?” Here’s what you need to know about this snake. It fell out of Don’s four wheeler from the dash onto his legs when putting the key in the ignition. Can you even imagine? You’re in your vehicle and a snake like that falls on your legs? I get creeped out even thinking about it.
This is a bee swarm. I actually saw this also. It was about ten yards away from some bee hives. It’s a little hard to tell from this photo, but the swarm is about 1 1/2 feet long and 3-4 inches deep. There were several bees flying in and out when we were there. Fortunately, neither of us got stung.
So that’s the buzz for this week’s post of Don’s AMAZING farm photos. We’ve learned they make great cocktail party conversation.
Thanks for following my blog and thanks, Don, for sharing your photographs this week.
