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 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 .

Dave there is a pond right at the base of the cypress trees and they sit up and size up their next meal.
Ted, I’m just sayin’ it's sunny and warm here in the Sunshine State. The biggest ones that sit there are the blue herons and they’re about 3’ tall.

Humm, Ted's got lots of snow in his yard and I have lots of sunshine in mine.
I have several youngish cypress trees in the backyard and when the green herons, red shouldered hawks and anhingas sit on the top of the tree they bend it over. These are Bald Cypress so they loose their leaves during the winter. WINTER, it's going to be 76 today.
So I connected 2 lengths of 1" PVC pipe, put a hook near the top and tie wrapped it at the bottom to overcome the problem. Where I have the perch that should be good for a couple of years tree growth.

I wouldn't go in or even near the water if I were you.

I caught this illusive hog-headed Herring in the backyard pond. Luckily I had my camera with me.

John, looks like that balloon didn't have the desired effect on that poor Racoon.
Here is a wild Turkey with her young, that I photographed up north at our cottage.
I've never seen wild Turkeys around the cottage before, but I think it has something to do with my daughter Emma feeding and befriending Chipmunks.
She keeps putting out little piles of bird seed, and now the turkeys have discovered this fact.
As a side note, did you know that a group of turkeys is called a "rafter" of Turkeys.
I was thinking of starting a petition to change the term rafter that's used to describe a group of Turkeys to instead be referred to as a "Senate" of Turkeys.
I think this would work very well, in both Canada & the United States.
Would you sign a petition to change the term used to describe a group of Turkeys?
