This is some of what was seen through the 100-400 mm lens on the GH4 on that trip:

Common chicory (aka  blue daisy, blue dandelion, blue sailors, blue weed, bunk, coffeeweed, cornflower, hendibeh, horseweed, ragged sailors, succory, wild bachelor’s buttons, and wild endive)    was resplendent along most of the roadway.

Doe licking lips after early morning snack …

Dew drenched Sandhill Crane checks out intruder …

Lady Cedar Waxwing giving some advice to her partner….

Queen Anne’s Lace  is edible but must be harvested very carefully.  It has poisonous look-alikes.

QAL bud …

Sweet Clover collecting morning dew …

This plant has an  interesting history


Morning dew forming droplets in the early sun …

A couple more of this beautiful blue flower …

Close up of the buck in the “Featured Image” which will show above the title block on computers.   It seems to disappear on phones.

We had a great time.  TinTin met a new playmate and socialized well with humans.

Part 1 follows this post, in reverse chronological order.  🙂
