Climb High...Climb Far....

But make sure you can get back down...

As I rounded the bend on the way to my dad's I
saw this calf up on a pile of dirt.

He was looking off to the pasture and 'mooing'

The other cows were coming in to eat
The farmer had just put some fresh cornstalks out and they
were anxious to get some.

As they munched away the calf remained up on the dirt pile
mooing.
They watched me as to say "what? we're just eating here!"

This cow looked like the calf's mom with the same markings
but she paid no attention to her baby over there crying.

The calf on the other hand kept looking over at me as to say
"Can't you help me?" I had to just leave her there.

On up the road I saw this yellow cat along side the road
planted in the grass and Queen Anne's Lace.

Another bird who loves to 'climb high' is the Mockingbird
on the tippy top of the pine branch

I saw sure signs of fall with the turning of these leaves

Can you find the hummingbird is this photo? I'll give you two
hints...his tail is one side of a leaf and head and bill
on the other.I was actually trying to get the vireo
to the left which blurred out on me
and happened to see the hummer hiding there.

My first sighting of a migrating hawk. He was flying high
and hard to get a close up, but I was happy with this picture.

I'm always happy to see multiple things when I travel
the back roads to my dads.

Aw, poor baby - it's a beautiful little heifer, isn't it?
Gorgeous cat, but I hate to see it outside stalking you-know-whats.
Yep, I found the hummer, and I love the BIF. Nice post.

Thanks Shelly...I too felt sorry for the calf, but I wasn't venturing into the pasture!

Yes Helen, a really gorgeous heifer! I love white faced calves! and yes, those outside cats do catch you know whats.. Glad you found the hummer.

Thanks Marsha! I love back roads and country scenes.

You seem to get the greatest pictures. Wow. I can just hear that calf and see the cows working on those corn stalks.

That little calf is just darling! A cute story for sure! The cat picture is so nice - I love the light! Great hawk in flight!

Great photos. Wonder how the calf is now. Just never know what is going to be around the bend in the road.
