Big & Small on the Road


This was one of my goals on this trip.
To stand with the bison.
There may be more to this photograph for some of my followers.
The Bison were big, but I thought they would be much larger.
The life they have today is protection, grazing all day.
South Dakota


Red Squirrels are very busy getting ready for winter.
We watched this guy make numerous trips for pine cones.
He made nearly the same route each trip to his home and back.
There are grey squirrels where I live, so these were so vibrantly different for me.


The small mushrooms on the side of a path.
I do not know what kind this one was, just that it was new to me.


Small and big all along my travels on the road...

uh oh, I think you may have left a trail of bread crumbs! that bison photo is incredible. that is one strange looking mushroom, but it looks delicious for some reason. your macro shots are extraordinary. my fave is the grasshopper. I bet you're going to have one gorgeous stash of photos after this trip! I look forward to seeing them all. be safe Janie.

Wow what a trip so far and to get such an awesome photo of the bison. I am a mushroom person also. This one is very interesting. Hope you trip continues to go well. I can't wait for the weather to cool here so I have more time inside. Outside has been nice, but my house needs some serious cleaning. Thanks for all your visits.

That top photo is so striking and stunning. They are so wild still and very dangerous. Loved each of these. The little critter is cute too.
Autumn is here in Canada and the leaves are changing so fast and so pretty its so hard to not be outside . Have a wonderful Sunday
