Sometimes it's the little things that become so memorable.
This mad goose was fiercely protecting the nest from other geese. It made quite a splash as it landed near two intruders.
Spring blossoms never fail to make me happy,
While hiking at the Goshen branch of the Cincinnati Nature Center, a miniature insect zoomed toward a Black-Eyed Susan.
Turkey Vultures are abundant in the Cincinnati area, and as an avid bird watcher, I've always liked them. However, last year I learned first hand that they can and will throw up on you, as one did just that as it flew over my kayak on Cowan Lake. Needless to say, I never want to experience that again!
These wildflowers, at Caesar Creek Wildlife Area, were graced by the filtered light of white hibiscus just above them.

Sometimes looking in my own back yard is all I need to remind me to count my blessings. Red Hot Rolexx (Rexx) is my 22 year old gelding and part of my family.
You can bring the whole family to the Red, White and Blue Ash celebration. Bring a chair and enjoy the great food and entertainment.
