Theme Thursday - Wild

Hmmm... What to do, what to do? I'm not usually considered anything approaching "a wild and crazy guy", and I don't tend to take pictures of people doing things like that. However, I do take lots of pictures of "the wild" and the "wild" things that live there. Will that do?

For instance, this Mink watching all us crazy humans on the Cliff Walk is a "wild animal". Actually, we have lots and lots of Mink around here; I've seen them around Gooseneck Cove lots of times, and even saw some Mink tracks in the snow down by the Green Bridge one Winter day. And they're the reason why the Norman Bird Sanctuary no longer keeps fancy fowl around any more; the Mink were decimating them.

And I guess you could call these Canadian Thistle blooms "wildflowers".

This storm on July 1 was certainly a wild one!

Oh, wait! I do take pictures of crazy people doing wild things! Like this surfer in the aftermath of Hurricane Bill.

And of course, if you've been reading my blog for a while now, you can pretty much figure out what my video pick for this week's theme is. Yup, Jimi at Montreux, playing a really wild version of "Wild Thing" and then burning his guitar. Rock'n'Roll wildness at its best!

So is that wild enough for you?
