Another Hawk and some Pelicans

These guys are stalking my dog and since they are mostly young ones their nest site must be near. On a brighter note snapped some shots of these pelicans on the beach. You can click on the pictures for much larger images. 🙂

Being Sick and Some Photos

Was in the hospital and still sick with food poisoning. Not quite up to doing much of anything yet, but here’s some pretty pictures from Ponce Inlet and the Ponce Lighthouse. Stay well!

Spring Mill State Park

Revisit history in Mitchell Indiana at Spring Mill State Park Historic Village or commune with nature on the many hiking or biking trails and if you love space travel stop in at the Gus Grissom Memorial. I adore this place so I took Eric here today and wanted to share the photos. Hope you enjoy. To find out more about this beautiful park go here: http://www.in.gov/dnr/parklake/inns/springmill/activities.html

Blue Dresden Mushrooms

Went walking through the woods today and found some beautiful mushrooms. I call them Blue Dresden because they remind me of that kind of china/dishes. The real name is Lactarius Indigo or Indigo Milk Mushroom and they are editable or at least so I’m told. There’s also a young puffball that’s supposed to be editable as well. And I added a picture of these huge red glob fungi. I have no clue what they are, but the odor around them was pretty foul.
