Beautiful Skunk at The Nature Station
If you happen to also love photography and – in the words of Ellie Mae Clampett – Critters, you’ll be as crazy about the Nature Station in the Land Between the Lakes as I am.
For one thing, the Nature Station staff takes excellent care of their animals and birds. These are beautiful animals that, for various reasons, could never survive in the wild. The Nature Station allows them to live out their lives in safety with beautiful surroundings, shelter, endless amusement (mostly provided be us gawkers), and a steady supply of food.
They’re honestly as spoiled as my own cats and that’s saying something.
The Nature Station isn’t just Heaven on Earth for photographers and animal lovers – it’s the ideal setting to teach your children to respect and love wildlife.
The deer, turkey, bobcat, and the rest of the beauties wear autumn especially well, too.
They even name them! Do I have to tell you how much respect I have for that?!?
The bobcat always poses for me so beautifully, it’s like she knows how much I love her. She’s just really something special and I never get tired of watching her. In the gallery below, I trust you’ll forgive me for letting this love run amok. I remind myself of a grandparent taking pictures of a grandchild… must capture every move she makes!
My husband? He’ll be close by… unless it’s a skunk I’m spending time with. In that case, he’ll be safely out of “range.”
