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].

A home in Fish Hawk Ranch, Lithia Florida had a good sized gator in the pool this morning. I live in Lithia also, have only had snakes. I'm cool with snakes (not Barb) gators, not so much.

Frank if you feed the gator some of your Koi he will leave the poor birds alone

well for awhile anyway.

Speaking of gators he was out there this morning checking on ambush locations I presume.

The first shot is Ibis at work.

This shot is Ibis during break.

After these guys get done picking through the lawn there shouldn't be a bug anywhere.

Having a decent summer capturing local humming birds, here's a ruby throated female feeding on a bee balm flower in my wife's garden. I get better results using my Canon SX50 superzoom camera than I did in the past with my DSLR and a long lens. The camera allows continual shooting as long as the shutter is pressed. The bird feeds around the flower, and I just point and shoot away. I discard most of the photos as the bird is behind the flower or its wings are in its face. But sometimes it works out OK!

Yes, it's right there. A couple of days ago there was a duck about half way from the house to the pond. Just as I came out to have my morning coffee that gator was almost to the duck but when he saw me he hightailed it back to the pond. "That was one lucky duck"

Dave, In Florida alligators are close to most peoples houses. They were here first.

Yes Terrell but you certainly have the doe.

A Blue Heron is eyeing the koi in my fish pond.

It would appear I'm a buck short.

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