For the first time in a few years, we heard a distant drumming this spring. I love hearing the grouse drum. One year we had a grouse that drummed night and day. He was awesome. He found love and my husband and I were lucky enough to see him find a mate and watch them dance. Things had been pretty slow on the grouse front since the Atlas blizzard. It is great to have them back again. I made it a point to do a photo safari and get some photos of our forest musician.
He is winding up for the drum roll.
Here I am ladies.
King of the forest.
One more time, in case my music was missed.
I hope he finds a date, as he is a handsome fellow.
My iceland poppies are popping.
Unfortunately, the weekend wasn't all summer fun. While sitting on the porch enjoying the day, I caught sight of this fellow coming down the road.
Are there any monsters in your woods? What was your scariest experience? Do you have grouse? Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
