The Neighbor’s Place

One from the archives – the Lightroom archives that is.  Several photos that I’ve been wanting to get through and process.  Inspired by a post today by Erik Kerstenbeck (@ErikKerstenbeck).  Someday maybe I can make the list! Hope you enjoy…

The neighbor’s island where we vacation in Canada.  The mainland is not that far off in the background, so from this vantage point, it doesn’t appear that it is an island.

There was quite a few different flowers on the island this year.  I don’t know if it was because I was looking for picture opportunities, or if there were just more of them this year.  It is always a change from year-to-year on what you’ll f ind there…

Mmm… Turkey…

What a minute… that’s not the right turkey!  Gotta love a family of turkey vultures that seem to have taken a liking to the underside of your boathouse.  Disturbing? Yes. Adorable? Not exactly. Find it fascinating that the little tikes “hiss” at you? Absolutely.  I mean, it’s only when you get close to them.  And then what are they going to do? Well, besides continue to hiss and alert “mom” and “dad” who has the potential to claw at you, pick at your eyes and then feed you to their young??  Fortunately, it doesn’t get out of hand.  Disappointing for some, I know.
