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.

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.

Turning Over a Brick

While cutting the grass today I had to move a brick and when I turned it over I find these 2 snails just resting there.

The official name for snails is gastropod mollusks. Click the link to learn some interesting facts.

Back at the Ranch

Vacation is over 😞😭. I will have a post or two later on the trip.

After bringing all the bags and stuff (why do we take so much on vacation) into the house I go to check out the garden.

I notice that my freeloading critters realized that I was gone and had a major feast on the watermelon…..again.

I knew that they weren’t eatable after their first meal but I was letting them continue to grow so I could see how big the others would get.

Hopefully I will have others soon.

Thanks for visiting!

Momma Turkey kept moving so that she stayed between me and the chicks.
