It took a few days for the snarls, roars and pops of the motorcycle engines to stop ringing in my ears, and the sand out of my eyes. It'll take me longer to forget about Sturgis, South Dakota, home to one of America's biggest motorcycle rallies. Show More Summary

This squirrel was hanging out on a post near one of the bird feeders. It kept staring at me for some reason, even though I was minding my own business inside the house and am famously tolerant of squirrels raiding my feeders: I figured if I pulled out my camera, it would go away, and […]
