Another Snake Yikes!

Gray Rat Snake, maybe?  There is nothing like the fright you get when you open the back door to let the dog out and you see a snake looking back at you…  I’m pretty sure this snake was taking advantage of all the new baby lizards scurrying about. I had to remove him from the…

The Nine-Banded Armadillo

Another animal spotted by my dog, he wasn’t barking, he was just looking to the right with a bewildered stare.  There was a small family in the neighbors yard, a mother and two juvenile Armadillo.  It was a cooler summer night before dusk, they are usually only active at night. I was far away, this…

Some of my favorite scenes are the Iconic views seen in The Mara Triangle. The Sausage Tree Pride are the lions in these…

Other People’s Cats…

Photos I’ve taken of other people’s cats seems to have become a new little hobby of mine.  I think they all like to use my backyard as a rest area or an oasis of sorts.  My dog basically informs me when he has the visitor in his sight, he starts with a whining then proceeds…

My Giraffe

I guess it’s just the nostalgic bones in me.   Nostalgic is experiencing or exhibiting nostalgia, a sentimental or wistful yearning for the happiness felt in a former place, situation, or time.   I enjoy visiting eBay to…

Happy Thanksgiving

Did you ever wonder what your turkey looked like before you bought him at the grocery store?  A day at the farm; we saw this big beautiful tom turkey… Big Tom enjoyed following the kids around the farm…

Juvenile Cardinal

I spotted this little cardinal hopping around in the grass, it was difficult to snap a shot of him…

Another Visitor, Not My Cat

They come and they go, the neighborhood cats.  My backyard is like an oasis for them, but I think they all stop in my backyard to drive my dog crazy…  

American Robins

More visitors in my backyard, American Robins.  These birds are so interesting, I don’t think they get enough credit because they are so common.  They have such pretty markings and colors.  The Robins also sing one of the prettiest songs.  I love to sit on my back porch to listen and observe these birds.  

Another Backyard Visitor, Not My Cat

Had another visitor the other day, this cat came right up to the dog fence. She was looking at me, as if she was waiting for me to invite her in.  I thought she was going to come on to the porch, but the dog finally noticed the cat and charged out the door. The…

Bathroom Visitor

Woke up the other day and headed to the bathroom, you know the regular routine for most people… I caught a glimpse of something different out of the corner of my eye. As you can see the something different was a frog perched in one of the fake candles on the shelf. I have know…
