The fall colors are getting close to peaking in the Midwest. While driving scenic rural roads it can be hard to convince yourself not to stop every couple of miles in order to capture the scene. As a photographer this can make for a long day.

A pair of Sandhill Cranes and a group of Northern Shovelers get ready to migrate back south for the winter #WisconsinWildlife

Did you know that crayfish can live out of water, as long as their gills are kept moist? Crayfish in Wisconsin will mate in the Fall, go dormant over winter, and then females will lay their eggs come spring. Wisconsin hosts about 7 species of crayfish, and typically are found in quiet spots of creeks and streams.

This big daddy was found nestling into thick mud, while our amazing volunteers were working away in the rain this weekend to help us install our drainage system to prevent flood next spring.
We <3 our volunteers.

When you dig ditches and instal drainage systems... you find big ol' crayfish hiding away in the mud... prepping for a long winter.

This big daddy was found while our amazing volunteers were working away in the rain this weekend to help us maintain our nature preserve.

I've had the pleasure of watching this #woodduck family grow up throughout this summer. All summer long I've looked to catch glimpses of the family on my way to work in the morning and it is now getting to the time of year that I know any day now they will be taking off to make their journey south. I hope to see some of them next year πŸ’š

Pacey's first (mentor) hunt and my first deer camp experience last weekend!
I think the deer liked my company better than the boys'... my new furry friends hung out at the cabin with me and ate the corn under the tree instead. πŸ˜‚

Inktober Day 8, American Redstart (female): expected to lose 90% of its summer range in WI by 2080.
This year for inktober, I am drawing birds that are considered "climate endangered" in Wisconsin. There's still time to alter our climate course!

It's actually against the law to not give the quail a ❀️. Especially these intrepid little Wisconsin wingers.

Tromped through the bog yesterday to find this rare moth, the Bog Buckbean Moth. So cool to see them flying all over 😁
