Interesting Two Days
Yesterday and today has been an intresting day on Dewberry Lands. There will be pictures we took yesterday added to wildlife and wildflower pages but I thought I would put a few here. Go to the other tabs to see more pictures. First is a picture of a grasshopper that is being attacked by yellowjackets.
Next is a picture of one of our hens with a beard. She is not the only one, one of her little ones from last year, now has a beard also. They were both out back but I only got a picture of the old hen.
Yesterday we saw some mushrooms that were over a foot tall. I have never seen any like this. (Pictured below)
Yesterday there was a fawn that came out and ran around in the woods putting on a show then it joined the doe.
Last picture happened this morning before we left for church. It was a beautiful morning with the sun shining bright. Seven hens came out and feed then eased back into the edge of the woods. Then the five one and a half year old jakes came to feed and they saw the hens. Their heads turned red and one started to strut. This started something and all at once all five started to strut and it is September 25th. This was an amazing site. They strutted as they followed the hens off into the woods.
