Words On A Wednesday: Wildlife Encounters

You know we see a variety of wildlife out at the marsh. Over the years we've seen foxes and river otters, long-billed curlews and greater yellowlegs. Well, the other day we were walking on one of the trails when this young'un came up to us, pointed at my camera and asked, "Is that a camera? Take my picture." And so I did.
I said to him, "Would you like me to show you the picture I just took?" He said, "Yes!"

So, I showed him the picture. He said, "Take another one, and I'll smile." And so I did.
We laughed and laughed. He mother said, "Okay, time to let these people move on."

We waved goodbye.

We never know what kind of wildlife we're going to see at the marsh!

  2. Encounters with that particular kind of wildlife can be expensive. Sometimes they find ways into your home and take up residence there for decades!

  5. Ha! When I traveled in India about eight years ago, lots of kids asked me to take their pictures. They were some of my favorite shots from the trip!

    1. Steve-- How cool. Makes me wonder if wanting to have a picture taken is a sign of free-spirited children who live in a friendly, safe environment.

  12. A sign of the times -- when kids are photographed so often now they're always at the ready to pose! Funny fellow was very trusting. Loved the "don't feed them, they'll never leave" comment posted. Kim in PA
