The rainy road home.We decided to adventure on the way home and take in the Medicine River Wildlife Recovery Centre. Due my notes of approach from the south I got us a wee bit lost, not the first time and hopefully not the last as we tend to see things we never would if we stayed on the right track. Thanks to my most excellent sweetie he figured out my notes and got us there; its nice having a partner in life who "gets me".
At the centre Carol put on a ten min video about the rehabilitative and fostering work they accomplish, I had seen the video previous on-line though it was good to see it again as Gerald had not. We then chatted with Carol, asked a few questions and got to photograph these beautiful babies.
Looking up and enjoying the rain that is filtering down. This young lady put on quite the show for us.
Don't you just love the baggy MC Hammer pantaloons.
Quite a bit of color difference between the two youngsters, so beautiful.
I feel privileged watching these two owlets flexing and strutting under the rain drops while the foster parents stayed under shelter.
Tired out after all that exercise. Cuddle time!
Even owlets need hugs from time to time.
This is Otis, he is a well traveled mascot who goes into schools and teaches youth about caring for and about wildlife.

We were informed that Porcupine like to cuddle as well, ouch.
Male Pintail duck.

Two hours later upon leaving the centre we made tomato sandwich in the car as it was still raining. then got the wheels rolling and at the cross road, I squealed, poor Gerald's ears putting up with an excitable adventurer.
Moose on the loose.
Hope you all have a wonderful day, big Hugs!
we all need them!
