Julia and her Aunt Mandy came by with this little guy in there hands.  It is a baby snapping turtle.  You can tell by the high ridge on its back.  They grow quite big and you would never think of picking up and adult like this

Thanks Julia and Amanda for sharing your find.  Everyone will be happy to know they headed down to the lake to release the baby turtle to be seen on another day and much bigger


I had these great wildlife pics sent to me by Rob Moore who was up this last weekend fishing and taking pictures


Heron in a tree not something you see that often


Otters down by Holiday and Norway digging their dens


Rob caught the loons making the Yodel call their most aggressive call.

Pileated Woodpecker

My favorite picture taken along the Bearskin Trail.  If only birds could read.  Piliated Woodpeckers are very destructive and many folks in the northwoods would love to use a sign like this to tell the noisy peckers to bug off


Wildlife of a different variety looking for a handout.  Poe heard Barb had pig’s ears
