What is the best nature show moment you've seen in real life?

Mine was about two years ago. My dad and I saw a family of cardinals in our neighbor's backyard. The babies looked like it was their first time out of the nest. It was just like something you'd see on PBS or Animal Planet.

I have a nest in the elbow of the drain pipe off the back porch..
That gets a Robin every year..
She has no fear of me whatsoever..
Watching her hunt.. and take care of the babies ..
is allways amazing.. seeing them grow and learn to fly..
how she watches them in the yard...

That nest has had a Robin for the last four years..
the new occupant just throws out the mud shell..
winds a few Morning Glory vines around the outside..
and sets up house keeping..

Then she and the Mister , take turns sitting on the eggs..
I love having them here..

For sheer entertainment.. the chippies and the squirells
I figure, if you can't beat them ..
join them.. so I got the fancey rats their own feeder...

I allready wrote about the butterfy garden..
thats fun to watch too !

Great thread Mike ! Thankee !

We have deer that come out of the woods and graze in our yard and sometimes eat apples from the apple trees...

I love to watch the hummingbirds, they are so fast and can swoop right by your face before you can bat an eye.

I have seen so many butterflies this spring on some of our rides in the woods and along old trails and creeks. They are spectacular!

Have you ever seen a beaver at work? Those little critters are very hard workers and use those little teeth to cut trees and dam the pond up for their homes. Very interesting to see...

Also the wild turkeys are fun to come across, I like seeing a mama and her babies crossing an old trail. She hurries them along knowing her and her babies could be in danger. You don't see them long, for she heads them to the nearest escape route she can find.

Peacocks are beautiful creatures. They spread their tail feathers out and it looks like a multi color fan. I do like watching then and they can be noisy birds. Once you hear one scream out, you never forget.

The other day, a yellow bird was using the pot hole in our driveway, as a bird bath. Couldn't help but smile, while we waited in the car for him to finish.

Best Nature Show moment I have experienced in real life? Without a doubt every part of nature and all Mother Earths creatures never cease to amaze me but, one that is near and dear to my heart is when I volunteer to be a 'spotter' on the Island in North Carolina where I am from...it starts out 'spotting' and 'flagging' Loggerhead Turtle nests..checking on them often to make certain they are still 'safe'...next thing is to watch, if one is lucky enough, the eggs breaking open to expose the most adorable babies I have ever seen ~smile~ Now I make it sound as if it all happens in a few days but, it actually begins late April/early May and the eggs hatch in September...best time and best chance to see a nature show unveil right before your eyes is to be close to a nest on a full moon ~smile~ Watch those baby turtles go! It is truly amazing....under the full moon you can see all the babies head for the water not by sight but by the vibrations of the waves..simply amazing! Not to mention sooooo cute!

Two years ago A buddy and I were out walking, looking for deer actually. When he thought he saw something in a field by a doe. When we went out to investigate it was a new born fawn.

It was beautiful, it stayed where its mom had put it. We got to within 2 feet of it, NEVER touching the wee thing.

Early one morning as I began a Falconry hunt with Shea, a male Red Tailed Hawk. Walking through the woods a fawn perhaps 8 or 9 months old came into the area where I was standing. He was playing just like a puppy. Jumping, rolling, turning flips, laying on his back on the ground rubbing around. All this was 10 feet away and just beautiful! biggrin.gif

Been spending lots of time in the lovley Laurel Highlands on week ends..
getting buzzed by humming birds as they head for the feeder...
I had no idea they sounded like wee fighter jets ! smile.gif

The other day , a rooster just wandered into my friends yard..
very tame... not aggressive with the dogs..
He's been there about ten days now...
Asked the ajoining farms. No one seems to know who this wee guy belongs to..
So I guess hes staying.. put a coup together for him..cause there are plenty of fox around..

ACD's are famous for going after fowl.. Fanny could care less about that Rooster

In Service to the Dream,
Paula

In June, we were renting a beach house on Oak Island NC. We went out for a evening stroll on the beach. We saw this animal on the beach that looked something like a fox, but didn't appear to have the bushy tail of a fox. We got closer and took some pictures. From the pictures, it obvious was a red fox, soaking wet from having swum the Intercoastal to get out to the island. He found something of interest in the sand, so I got some good pictures.

There was another photographer there from Greensboro NC. We talked about the animal. He mentioned a newspaper article about an unknown animal photographed near Asheboro NC, the home of the NC Zoo. That animal looked something like a bedraggled grey fox. I had seen the article and had been thinking the same thing. Later comparisons of the pictures showed that the Oak Island animal was a red fox. The Asheboro animal is still unknown.

Just this past April I got to swim with the stingrays off the coast of Grand Cayman. It wasn't very difficult for as soon as you jump in the water they know it's feeding time. But to see these huge, black disks gliding up to you and the surprising texture you feel, they are not slimey at all, is definitely exciting.

O'siyo,
~ I had a 'best nature show' moment while at the beach in Aug-Sept. smile.gif I was sitting on the balcony one evening around 6pm~ Of course everything is beautiful when you are at the beach and it is so relaxing! I was about to get up when all of a sudden there were hundreds of bright, almost fluorescent yellow butterflys all around me and flying in front of me~ It was as if someone had opened up a box or jar and all at once, released these spectacular creatures!~ thumbup.gif It was truly a magnificant site! This lasted for at least 20 minutes~ A continuous flight of yellow butterflys~

The most amazing thing I have ever seen in nature, besides nature iteslf....

Was when I was walking with a notepad in my hand in my back woods, where we used to live. There was almost no one around, living near us.

I stumbled onto a black bear, not a big surprise for me he was quite a ways away, so I got alittle closer. The strangest thing was...I deer was by the bear.

That deer came right up to the bears nuzzle, sniffed it, and turned and walked away. The bear looked shocked in the least, but never acted.

It was the most amazing experence for me, I wrote acouple stories about it, that very night.

It still touches me now, 2 years later.
