Bright Sunny Days at the Vermilon River. A Post To MWT and WBW.

 I think this will be a two part post as the weather was good, if not a little warm and humid. There was lots of activity in the forest.Therefore lots to shoot.
 I didn't include any squirrels this time,although I got another sequence of an acrobatic squirrel harvesting a spruce tree. But I did include a larger four legged critter photographed in another town near here. I saw the perching hummingbird again, and took some more photos.He was actually in the same tree. I also worked out the distance from me to his perch. It was about 65 feet using the square root of the sum of the squares. CLICK ON ANY PHOTO TO ENLARGE, AND WATCH THE SLIDE SHOW.
