Noncharismatic Megafauna

The term “Charismatic megafauna” refers to large wildlife that everyone wants to conserve.  Polar bears, moose, bison–all are charismatic megafauna.

I ran across some of the less charismatic and less mega fauna on our place today.

Here is a small group of white-tailed deer.

And a pair of Canada geese.

I like them, but I kind of like the insects better. 

Don’t ask me why.

    Non-charismatic? Surely not.

    I like the sky behind your canada geese
