Goose Lake Potpourri

A few left over photos...



Are you ever walking along a path, and a huff/snort comes from a nearby bush, and out leaps a deer? Who can resist a photo op, although my intent is never to disturb...






Splashes of texture and color in this one...







This very cooperative wren has taken up residence in a nearby birdhouse to start a family...







I believe this butterfly is an American Lady...







Cragg Cabin is always a draw for photographers at Goose Lake Prairie State Park...







When walking a trail, I flushed what I think were 4 grouse. Obviously by the photo I couldn't get a good ID.

Loved all your photos today! The deer caught in action is always a welcome sight! and on down in another post I enjoyed the 'rumble' with your water birds! Great posts!

Holy cow - I can't believe you even got a shot of the grouse! I've flushed so many out near my house and there isn't even time to THINK - let alone focus and click the shutter! The deer jumping - the geese - I love them all but the Cragg Cabin shot really took my breath away - BEAUTIFUL!!!
