Hello, everyone! It's me, Cammie. As some of you may remember, one of my duties here at Ao4 Headquarters is being Head of Security
! Because of that role, I got to accompany Mom to Tuttle Creek State Park yesterday! It was great fun -- here are a bunch of photos, with most of the chit-chat cut to a minimum!
I had a good look around as soon as we got there.
|"WAIT! What's that?!?"|
|"Oh. Right. A bird. Gotcha."|
Well, some of those birdies are mighty large! It's my sworn duty to protect my mom - no matter who or what the threat is!
I sat patiently while Mom photographed birdies out on the River Pond:
|"Shoot away, Mom. I've got your six."|
After that, we got to walk down this cool walkway between the River Pond and Willow Lake:
|"Ospreys and hawks and herons - oh, my!"|
Cool smells GALORE!!! And birdies. Lots of birdies!
After we checked Willow Lake out and explored a little, we hopped back into the car and went over to one of my favorite places -- a dock on the River Pond!
|"Fishies! I see fishies!"|
After we were there a while, we drove over to where the River Pond meets the Big Blue River. We saw this on the way:
|"Check that out, Mom!"|
If we had a trailer, we'd HAVE to have that logo on it - don't you think?
Out at "the point", I sat patiently ...
|Me, very happy to be Head of Security|
... while Mom photographed some tiny birds. Her two favorites are this Eastern Bluebird:
|I wonder if the "warning" was that Mom was there with a camera. Ha wooroowoo!|
And this Yellow-Rumped Warbler:
Mom wasn't sure it was a Yellow-Rumped Warbler until he turned around and did this pose:
|"Here. Check it out."|
That was mighty obliging of him, wasn't it?
|"Thank you, Mr. Warbler!"|
You can see a few more of the photos Mom took at this link
, if you'd like.
We checked the area a little bit more ...
|"I don't see any more birdies, Mom."|
... then decided we should head back home.
We had a great time together - and Mags had special one-on-one time at home with Dad! Thanks for letting me take you around the park a bit!
Such beautiful photos! What a great place for a walk. And hey...you definitely need that trailer with the cool snow dog logo on it!ReplyDelete

Some people aren't lucky enough to have a real Sibe as head of security, so they have to make do with a logo on their trailer!ReplyDelete
