  5. Caite, great collection of shots from Forsythe. I love the Osprey and chicks. And the turtle peeking out is cute. Gorgeous flowers! Are they open now during the week?

  9. I love seeing all the baby wild life. we are still waiting to see the baby turkeys this year? we have noticed a huge herd of males, some must be from last year. and we have seen a female or 2, but no babies :( someone recently dropped off 3 cats on our wooded corner again, I am praying they didn't snack on them!
    I love all you photos Caite. you must have a great zoom, esp for the ospreys.
