Isn't wonderful to be "in" the country. Fabulous photos. I just love standing outside and watching a Griffon Vulture glide by.

Love the deer photos!! We usually only see fleeting glimpses!!

I've never seen that Canadian thistle before. (It must not have invaded NH yet). It definitely has beautiful lines and seems like it could inspire some beautiful quilting or stained glass!

Chris said...

There really is a lot to see at our farm. It is heaven on earth. The butterfly and dragonfly are on a fallen log covered in moss.
