Our nation's bird...you can't tell in this pic, but he had just been fishing!  His feathers were wet and he was drying above his nest.  So majestic!

Here I was just about to ice fish for the first time:)  You can't beat doing it in a shanty...it's warm, dry, and a great experience...even though afterwards I fell HARD on my elbow and suffered a slight concussion...no joke!  It was worth it though:)

Check out the bruised elbow!  It looks worse a few days later...X-rays though indicate no  chips or fractures...they found metallic fragments in my elbow though from a long ago car accident...didn't know they were in there!

Can you see the beautiful swan flying off in center of photo?  There were about 4 of them at various bends in river...I always say around every bend of the river is a treasure for the soul:)

I love hearing the sounds of the wings when the ducks and geese fly...you can really hear them and some of the ducks have a very unique sound...it's truly amazing that God had so much creativity in creating each and every amazing animal!
