Tractor Parade and Josh in Alfafla Field

In July we had a tractor parade go through our area.

Some were pretty fancy - with separate accommodations for 'the wife' and the obligatory invocation of local deities:

His Tractor (and her seat)

Others were more rudimentary but gave bonuses in the form of candy:

So Josh did a little candy hunting in the young alfalfa:

Fall 2011 Butterflies

We had some spectacular butterflies late in the Fall of 2011.

First, a pair of female monarchs came through the morning of September 4th.

Then one gave me a nice profile against the morning sky:

Finally, the next day, we saw a pair of swallowtails mating in a rather interesting configuration:

Fall 2011 windstorm

We had a big windstorm On Friday, September 2nd. It knocked out power to our place for 12 hours. We were among 65,000 customers without power due to the storm.

More interestingly, it did some remodeling to an old house on Highway 71 outside of Mauston (aka Mouseberg).

Here is the west wall, pre-storm:

Then, a few days later:

Vermont Night Series

Here is a series of photos I took the other night - it was snowing/sleeting a bit.

A visitation of eagles (and some crows) December 2010 and January 2011

We have had some eagles visiting for several weeks. They are snacking on slaughterhouse waste that was spread on a neighboring field.

This one found my camera annoying.

It looked better when it flew away.

Eagle in Flight

Some of the eagles can do formation flying (and I have a nice bridge to sell, if you want it).
