We’ve been on vacation up on Mackinac Island for a while but it’s back to reality now! This coming week all of my posts will be shots of Mackinac. Today’s pictures will be of the drive up there. It’s about a six hour ride from home and the further we got into Michigan, the more vibrant the trees became. We always stop in Big Rapids to stretch and gas up the Jeep. @Elizababble took over driving so I could take pictures.
I’m always intrigued by things that have been abandoned. I wonder what the story is; How did it get there? What secrets do they hold? Recently, I was lucky enough to come upon a little “abandonment” in the woods.
First, there was this. Hmmmmmmmm It was a rope, not an electric wire or anything. How serious could they be?
It was a nice hike in the woods; eerily quiet too.
Today I went out to shoot photos of a little wildlife. Timing was everything catching the graceful landing of a Blue Heron.
The landing gear starts to come down
Picture Perfect Landing 🙂
“It’s a bug-eat-bug world out there. One of those Circle of Life kind of things. Now let me tell you how things are supposed to work: The sun grows the food, the ants pick the food, the grasshoppers eat the food.”

I see this hawk all the time perched on top of this church steeple. This morning…….I had my zoom lens with me.
