Is this picture sideways? It looks like it based on the rocks.

One more of the triplets. They were out when I came home for lunch. They stay close to the tree line still, so a lot of zoom lens. I still haven't seen the mommy, but my wife says she saw them suckling yesterday, so they must be OK. They are getting bigger.

Yes it is sideways. Don't know why it did that. In my pics it is right side up.


It is NOT a very big cave. It is more of a grotto then a cave

Can I join in? I don't know what they are. Closest I can come on google is "American Oystercatcher." These guys hung around so long, I finally took their picture. I think that's what they were waiting for!

Thanks!

Very nice Shorty Long!

An update on the triplets... They are all still doing ok. It's a little weird, but we see 2 mothers taking care of the 3 of them. One day we'll see all three with one mother. The next day, one will be with a different mother and the other 2 with the original mother.

Here's one of them. They are getting big!

Shot this oddly shaped mushroom on a dead tree trunk from every possible angle....this one seemed to be the most interesting....and the most fun. I captioned it "Casper the Friendly Mushroom Ghost." I think MM would like it.

Now that is a great photo! It tells so many different stories. Every time I look at it I think of something else.

Edit: MM would have LOVED this photo! Greatly miss his insight...
