I've been watching him for months. He seems to appear when I'm without my camera or he will take off too quickly when I come by. He lives near my Mom's house and late last spring I would sometimes see him as often as 3 times a day! I figured it must be mating season because he would be out strutting his stuff and looking all pretty! Sometimes, I would see him over flirting with a group of holsteins. Now that was a sight!
Yesterday morning I finally caught him!! I pulled over to the side of the road as he passed by. I quickly grabbed my camera, he made some funny noises, actually a lot of sqawking! No he wasn't too thrilled with me!
Soon he was headed into the brush and nowhere to be found. I have seen him a lot lately and started wondering if it could be mating season again. Well, I didn't drive but a few hundred yards, and look what I found.
She is a little more plain looking and blends into the landscape really well! And yes, that is snow, our you've got to be kidding snow!
But I know a certain fellow who thinks she's just gorgeous! Thanks for coming by, I hope you visit our hostess Susan for more Outdoor Wednesday Posts! Cindy
Welcome to Applestone Cottage. My husband Dan and I bought this cottage in the hills of Western Wisconsin 2 years ago. My husband Dan is a building construction and woodworking teacher at our local high school. He loves to build and I love to decorate on a shoe-string budget. With an empty nest looming, we wanted to take our life in a new direction. We found our little stone cottage on 2 acres surrounded by apple trees. Hence, Applestone Cottage began. Please join us as we turn on little cottage in the country into an inviting little home. Cindy
