Daddy River Duck

99 Daddy Duck - Copy

River ducks are so much fun to watch. This daddy was keeping watch as the female mama duck was teaching the little ducklings how to handle the river current. It was fun to watch as daddy was more interested in making more ducks then taking care of the little ducks and mama duck was definitely the one that wore the pants. This may be were the expression comes from madder than a wet hen.

Michigan Frozen Hearts

Frozen hearts melt with love

Any one in Michigan who is experiencing the bitter cold and the impact on the heart. Shoveling and walking in cold weather gear is one way to warm the heart. But the better way is to stay inside avoid the -20F wind chill and cuddle with the one you love. As we head towards February 14th and Valentines day take time today to plan for a special celebration with the one you love.

Into the woods SPNC

Into the woods SPNC

Seven Ponds Nature Center in Dryden Michigan is the perfect place to explore nature and the back to nature feel. This tall stand of woods brings to mind the magical story of little red riding hood and her journey through the woods to visit her sick Grandmother. What is lurking in the shadows, could it be the big bad wolf, or is it a friendly deer curious of who is going into the woods.

Have you ever wanted to travel back in time to a moment that you captured on your DSLR Camera. McGulpin Point near Mackinac Bridge in Mackinac Michigan is one of the sunsets that I would love to have a magic time portal to beam me back to the magic of the sunset that night over Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. One of the best sunsets I have ever seen. Its beauty was captured in orange and pink to the West along Lake Michigan, and Pinks and blues along Lake Huron and the Mackinac Bridge. This is Pure Michigan at its best.
