Carolyn, your white turkey really blends in there.  Natural camouflage I guess.

Monty, nice pics.  Thanks for posting.

Here's a few mundane ones.

One of our resident bats.  They leave in the winter.


The pond down the street, where the swans and geese were (last winter).


The lineup.  Not exactly the hot seat but pretty warm anyway.  (Burmese)


Post your cornfields or whatever.  Way back when, maybe '72 or '73, I drove out on Route 66 heading to Lubbock Texas.  Yes, a lot of flat land and corn fields.  And, yes, I was in my blue '69 T-Top Corvette.  It was a great trip except for the sunburn.

If a wood chuck could chuck wood, how much wood would a wood chuck chuck, if a wood chuck could chuck wood?

A wood chuck would chuck as much wood as a wood chuck could chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood!! Is the correct answer Classic

nope,

A wood chuck would chuck as much wood as a wood chuck could if a wood chuck could chuck wood

A Straight Dope Classic from Cecil's Storehouse of Human Knowledge
How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
July 17, 1987
Dear Cecil:

This question has gnawed at me since I was a young boy. It is a question posed every day by countless thousands around the globe and yet I have never heard even one remotely legitimate answer. How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

— R.F.B., Arlington, Virginia

Are you kidding? Everybody knows a woodchuck would chuck as much wood as a woodchuck could chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood. Next you'll be wanting to know why she sells seashells by the seashore.

ROTFLMAO

Wow Squirt!
Great pics!  Those ice storm pics are amazing.  The ice icicles recorded the wind direction at the time they were formed.
Arnie I love the pics BUT the bat scares me to death  :o
I'm not afraid of bugs or spiders, I'll pick up snakes even but bats freak me out for some reason.
It is a great pic even though it scares me  :D

Great pictures everyone, well except for the groundhog/woodchuck, there should have been crosshairs on that one. I only live about 20 miles north from Punsxatawney, PA where for some dumb reason they worship groundhogs. Yea that was where groundhog day was thought to be started.

Here's a few picture from our area. I did not take the elk pictures, I think I got them from a friend who is really good at taking pictures. The elk range is about 25 miles NE of where I live and I go there several times a year to watch them. I'll be going up next week to hear them bugle and see how many I can see, plus the leaves should be turned pretty well, so I may get some pictures.

More Elk

A great place to go trout fishing and to look for Bald Eagles


A couple pics from my back yard using a game cam




And finally a picture from my bird feeder, last winter, I think?

Good old West Texas...sure wish we had the beautiful scenery ya'll have!  We have of course walls of dirt!



Then thuderstorms and funnel clouds





Maybe a rainbow afterwards



But we do get gorgeous sunsets





And sometimes it even snows!

That last photo would be a horse, right?  It seemed to fit the descriptions I've seen (a leg at each corner, dangerous at both ends and uncomfortable in the middle) but I though I'd double-check.

Great pics Pens and WTS!
I don't know if I could cope with the funnel clouds, though.
I'd be scared!  We don't have that powerful weather here.
Thunderstorms, yes, but not super-cells like those.
