Frogs Aplenty

While checking out the garden and seeing the devastation that the groundhog did, i noticed a bunch of black things hopping around.

Initially I thought they were crickets but on closer inspection I see it is a bunch of baby frogs!

Have you seen anything interesting lately?

They Did It!

The squirrels have done it now!   They have climbed up a narrow pole, as if they are tight rope walkers, for a while now to feast on the birds food. Today one of them broke the feeder…

Now I need to find another one that they can’t break and figure out what I can get for them so that they can leave the bird feeders for the birds.

Red-bellied Woodpecker

It was a bit hard to get a really good shot of this Woodpecker, he was very flighty and fast. 

Here is some information on the Red-bellied Woodpecker

Hanging by a Nail

Squirrels are strong creatures.  This common Eastern Gray Squirrel is hanging upside down on my bird feeder only by his/her toe.

 

I was able to sit approximately 8 feet from them just watch  squirrels climbing up and down the feeder.   They are fascinating and at times annoying creatures.

Framed by Nature

I was once again snapping some pics of birds on the feeder when I noticed something moving in the trees.

I looked up I see this beauty….

…she was just browsing in the trees.

A Bit of Bird watching Today

I hope that you all are well!

It’s been a while since my last post, not sure where the time went. 

I did a little bit of bird watching today.

Hummingbird
What you looking at!?

And Another One Visits!

This year I have seen so many Praying Mantis, probably more than I have seen in most of my life combined. Maybe a slight stretch but hopefully you get my point.

I enjoy photographing them as they usually seem to be looking at me trying to figure out what the heck I am doing.

Hiding in Plain Sight

I love the way nature gave its most fragile creatures a way to blend in and hide from is predators.

Unfortunately this little guy was not hiding very well. He stood out like a sore thumb on the walkway.

It looks kinda like a leaf with spikes on the end.

Thanks for visiting!

Hiding

This small snail was found hiding in my stringbean plant.
