Turtles and muskrats and bears oh my!

And ducks and deers and birds like hawks and herons and kingfishers and turkeys and other critters such as bobcats and coyotes too.


Of course we can't forget our fishies either.  Some of the largest trout in northeast Georgia.


And of course there's all the snakes!  Water snakes.  Black snakes.  Snakey snakes.

And there's "the look!" above.  The Snoogans Look.  Snoogans the cat is no longer working with us.  She retired in 2014.  Don't worry though.  She did not "go to the farm."  She moved up the road a few miles to run a household with multiple dogs, cats and a couple of humans.  We hear she is very much in control!

duckDuck!

Not the duck you need to do when going up and down the stairs in our basement.

A real duck, taking in the beauty of some wild roses along the bank of the Soque in front of Mark of the Potter.



Please note:  This really is bear country!

This image was taken directly across the river from the deck of Mark of the Potter.

Please don't feed the bears!

It is unsafe for the bears and...

                                         ...the humans!!

Bear at MotP

BirdBearFeederOne of our local black bear's northern cousins?

 This photo was discovered on a page of the Vermont Journal-Shopper that was "imported" as wrapping paper for some of the finest Vermont stoneware.  (Thanks Christopher!)

Rest assured that our southern black bears know the treasures that reside in birdfeeders too!
 

This brook trout was seen hanging out with the larger rainbows and browns summer of 2013.

We had so much rain throughout the summer of 2013 that the river temp never got over 68 degrees F.
