This morning, between rain showers, I happened to look out the window and saw this interloper taking its leisure in the shade garden next to the patio.
Of course, She-Who-Rules-The-Yard [:-doggy] took exception to the intruder and barked furiously and bravely, albeit from a distance. She continued to bark long after the hapless creature had ambled back to the woods until I wacked her with a broom because she was driving me [:-crazy].

Same thing was happening in Lithia, Fl. where I live.
Thank goodness we got some rain.

Just a little guy. This 3-footer has been patrolling the pond behind the house for the past month or so. I guess the drought had him looking for water and he ended up here. For a size comparison the lily pads are a little more than a foot across.

Sure sign of spring, a squirrel grabbing two peanuts from our tray:

Here is one not quite so majestic.
I was turning over the garden and finding the occasional grub worm (about 1/2" long) when this brute showed up. It was just a bit over 2" long.

Ken, they are majestic birds. I'm glad to see them rebound so well. I recently saw one by the Bull Run Marina in Fairfax Co., VA.

A frequent visitor to the lake front. He just caught a fish.

That's a nice idea Ted, but outside.

A bit of the local wildlife found by my daughter, Jaime, while we were on a walking tour of Old Havana, Cuba, last month:

Unless you live in Florida, where apparently that's OK ;-) :-)

Unless they can show you a valid drivers license and proof of insurance I wouldn't let em' drive those cars!
