Wildlife at Lake Georgetown

Kathi is out doing girlie things with our niece, Shanna today and I am home writing. I did take time out to pick up a pizza for lunch.

We had heavy rain last night and the passenger side of the Jeep had standing water this morning. I dried out what I could and now am leaving the windows open to air dry, until the next rain storm.

I have mentioned seeing black squirrels here at Lake Georgetown and I was finally able to get a picture of one yesterday. They move so fast, I normally cannot capture them with my camera. Also yesterday morning I saw a red bird. It flew across the street in front of me and all I saw was red feathers, everywhere it had feathers. This morning when we were driving out of the park and three deer crossed the road in front of us. I managed to get a few pictures of one of them hiding in the brush beside the road.

We have seen a lot of deer around the country and I still get a thrill every time I see another one.

This spider was a big as my fist. We spotted it in the middle of the road here in the park a few years ago.

I am not sure what this bird is, but many people probably will. This is another picture from 2010.

Many deer are killed by cars in early morning and early evening. Buzzards are always flying around the park.

This deer was hiding from me.

A little curious about me, so I sat still.

Relax and eat breakfast, Arlon means no harm.

Deer are always vigilant when man is in the forest.

Black squirrel. I have also seen a few brown squirrels in the park this year.

I was very quiet and got several pictures before he spotted me.


  1. The bird in the 2010 photo is a Killdeer.
