American Dipper or Water Ouzel by Coralie

"The Dipper is a great bird to find around unpolluted fast moving waters. I happened to catch this one along the Metolius River. When these dippers blink their eyes it looks funky with the white feathers, turns their eyes white!

These dippers have a extra eye lid to allow them to see underwater. Now that would be rather cool to do! It is said they have scales that close there nose when they go underwater where they get their food at. 

A Walk Around The Cascades

The Cascade Mountains are named because of the cascades within them.

It is a treat to get to see a cascade that is full of water. These small waterfalls can be very fun!!

Very slippery, so be careful while I show you around!!

Now it is rather easy to take many photographs, you can see why cant you?

Oh, you might want to keep a eye on your dog too, dogs do get hurt on these!

Balancing Rocks of Oregon

 At one time this was just a local place.
Not to many people have been there. Now of course it has a sign and progress has moved in.
There are other spots that have these balancing rocks, some day I would like to hike to the spots we have found.
These remind me of a giant who came in and set up his house the way he wanted it.
I took these gosh, a year ago?

Mule Deer Doe and Fawns

Mule Deer is what you will commonly see here on this side of the Cascade Mountains here in Oregon. The Mule Deer are a big species of deer here in the USA and do blend right in with their surroundings.

Seeing a Doe with more then one fawn is a neat thing to see! The fawns being so cute and all with their spots! These two look rather young.

At this moment they all just stop and look at us for they are curious too! Then like a flash they are off on the run!

Scrub Jay Playing With Food

Meet the Scrub Jay that this article will be featuring! I ran across these images as I was in my archive on another project, however going through the series I just had to laugh and it might bring a smile your face as well?

The feature scrub jay I said on twitter was a, "she", though going through the series this looks and acts more like a juvenile playing with it's food!

Assassin Fly Robber Fly

Meet the Robber Fly or Assassin Fly. This one was following me around in a part of the High Desert we were at. Guy and the dogs of course did not see it, so when Guy asked what I was doing I told him what I found.

This rather large insect seamed to give off that don't mess with me attitude. I really do not know how to explain it. This insect had nothing to worry about I had no intentions of picking it up.
