This buck was trailing a doe through our backyard yesterday morning.
Here are some of the turkey photos I’ve posted over the years. I think my favorite is the one with the turkey perched on a limb with wings spread out over her poults (next-to-last photo below). The photo’s a little blurry, but it was really cool to see in person.

Many thanks to the Bent Tree homeowner/photographer who let me share these fantastic photos. Yesterday, he saw this 6 point buck chasing does (with no luck). Then, a short time later, the tired buck took a needed rest.

Thirty-six years ago, a settlement agreement was reached between Bent Tree Corporation (not the same as BTCI) and Bent Tree Property Owners Association, Inc. The amenities/common properties were turned over to the property owners, under a management arrangement on November 1, 1983 and the actual transfer of ownership to the property owners occurred later that month. Bent Tree Community, Inc. was established by BTPOA to own and operate the facilities on behalf of the Bent Tree property owners. The following quote is from the November 1983 Echo (the first Echo published by BTCI instead of by Bent Tree Country Club):
For many years now, my Sunday posts have featured Bent Tree homes and lots that were for sale. Yesterday, I was looking at a new vacant lot listing online and was surprised to see one of my own photos (that I took on June 20, 2014 during my round of golf) included in the listing.
This website is just a hobby of mine…I am passionate about Bent Tree and enjoy sharing some of the things that catch my attention. I have never objected to the noncommercial sharing of my photos and have expressly allowed the use of some photos when asked directly.
But seeing a photo that I took, used without permission for commercial purposes, got me thinking…my past Sunday posts often included a listing photo of the property. Even though I have identified listing photos as such, and linked them directly to the agent’s listings, I will no longer include listing photos unless I have the agent’s permission. I will simply link to the property information. That’s the right thing to do.
