Some people pay to experience pain like that.
Maybe Mistress Natasha should pick up a few of those for some of her more jaded clients.

A hawk swooped down and followed my disc for a few seconds. I wonder if he we trying to determine if the disc was edible, and if he would attack it. When the disc started to fade, he lost interest. Lucky, too. It was a good drive for a birdie.

This guy appeared after a limb was blown off a tree during the USWDGC.

Playing Stoney Hill yesterday---or technically, quitting play and trudging back towards my house in disgust---I came up from the back side of the dam and saw turmoil in the pond. Thinking it was a the mysterious waterfowl that's been diving in there the last few weeks, I waited for it to submerge and then hustled up to the edge of the pond to finally get a good I.D.

Much to my surprise, an otter popped his head up.

Made more special by the fact that, until the day before, I hadn't realized we had otters in this region. I had been walking a river about a mile away and seen two. So a day after that surprise, I got the bigger surprise of having a pair of otters on the course.

Now, if we can just train them to retrieve discs......

Great Horned Owl at Interlocken

This fellow scopes you out as you walk up to your tee shot on hole 4. At night, he (?) and his (?) partner hoot all around the park. Several trees east of his nest is where he (?) disgorges his fur and bone pellets.

That look seems to be saying, "Nose that thing up and threaten my nest and I'll dive bomb yo @$$!"

Otters are pretty smart critters!

There are often hawks and other similar birds of prey circling around the park where we practice throwing and several times I was sure that they were eyeing our dog so I didn't let pup chase any discs until the coast was clear.



That horned owl picture is too cool!

Guthrie is absolutely infested with turtles in the main creek, and said creek is also home to a large beaver. We see barred owls every now and then and once in a great while we'll see the great horned owl flying around. Awesome seeing something that large swoop through the air absolutely silent.

At Pecan park I had to step in a small stream to retrieve a poorly thrown drive, and after i stepped in the creek , something by my right foot got my attention. I look down and see the return gaze of a 4 foot long copperhead. We stared at each other for a minute, then he slowly slithered into the water like he owned the place. I promptly went home and changed my shorts.
