Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Another walk-about

It was a nice, sunny afternoon and I went looking for some well composted horse manure for the new raised gardens in the back yard. Of course, I took the camera and found a field where the Sandhill Cranes have been hanging out for a while. Thank goodness for a long lens as they were pretty spooky. 

 They have a tremendous wingspan although you wouldn't know it when they are standing.


 The pond next to the field had a few mallards in it.
 Last years cat tails look pretty grubby after a winter.
 There were a couple of Red Tailed hawks soaring overhead. Hard to track with a long lens!
Tomorrow, i will go for coffee with the guys and then head out to get two loads of manure (unless it's raining)!

Nice shots of the cranes. I need to work on my birds shots. They are hard to capture!
