It's National Turtle Day today.
Maybe INTERnational, now that I think of it!
Little Alligator snapper. Even though it was so small,
I moved it with the shovel. I do not want to be on a country road with no one around with a snapper hanging off my hand.
Here is a link to some wonderful information about moving turtles from the road.
We had a fun walk at the park today early, since we were expecting rain.
Lilly led Jax way off the path. That tree line covers a steep bank to a creek though, so
I called them back.
Lil was in her element.
This was taken with my phone through my bedroom window.
We have bunnies all around the house this spring.
I'll show you tomorrow what Jax and I discovered in the backyard this afternoon.
We started working outside about 30 minutes before it began to pour.
I have a project for us inside tomorrow, just in case.
They are trying to earn spending money for their first family vacation trip,
that they are taking to Branson in a month.
I shot pictures at the ballparks all weekend at the baseball tournament and a few at the T Bones.
I forgot to re-set the camera, remember, I have to shoot in manual now, since I broke the auto setting.
I think this still came out okay early this morning, but really, very dark.
You will have to look hard in the middle of this wildflower strewn pasture
for a coyote that is looking at you. He crossed the street in front of me last week, and I was so stunned I stopped the darn car in a crazy place and took it's picture. I couldn't focus quickly and didn't really get him. That's at least the fifth coyote I have seen in broad daylight in the last few weeks.
A few minutes later, I saw a vulture eating on the side of the road.
I went around the corner to my gravel road with the little pond... and realized there were MANY vultures.
The funny thing was, after we walked, an hour later we came back by, and not a vulture was in sight!
Western Kingbird, this morning. I have the camera settings changed and will try to get one tomorrow.
This is a Boston Terrier who is very intent on getting a mouse.
HOWEVER... we have declared war on the mice, and
today, an exterminator came to our house. Yes, we are
killing them. The nice young man even climbed into the
attic, and downstairs to Keith's area...
I am going to be watching the dogs like a hawk.
We have to do it, though you know I don't like to kill.
And Gorges, if you are reading this... I looked it up, the towhee has a
white chest, though they look so very similar to the orioles!
