It's some kind of acipiter (hawk). They have been known to stay near feeders, and pick up the odd smaller bird. Great shot.

My Baby - her name is Heidi



I think there has been some hanky-panky going on around the pond. The middle duck seems to be a "domestic" that has been in-bred with the wild
side..

While in Alaska we visited the zoo.
Here is a Grizzly bear that stood an shook his cage door for a good 5 minutes.
Must have been close to feeding time.

Let's just hope they don't make their cage doors as rusty as we do on the forum...

I certainly needed to catch-up on this thread(last four pages), and it was definitely worth the detour. Pictures of beauty abound on each page, even the one showing the hairs on the spider's legs. Thanks everyone for sharing our great WILDLIFE heritage.

In keeping with the Zoo theme, here are 3 extremes of wildlife taken at the St. Louis Zoo on Friday.





If you are ever in St. Louis, go and visit the Zoo. It is one of the nicest city Zoo's in the US and is all the more amazing as it is free to get in!

Very nice butterflies Simon. I'm always impressed by these pictures of very nervous animals that are not very used to wait until the camera is on focus.

Thanks Frederic, I can tell you the two little terrors in the first photo are not much better at waiting for a shot to get set up!

If they behave like my two twins do, they are to be considered wildlife too...

Caught this black squirrel eating below the bird feeder at our son's house in Michigan.

Never saw a black one. But shot a brown one in an avenue of Washington DC 20 years ago. If I can find the photo, I'll scan it to share.

I've never seen a black squirrel before either. We usually have gray ones around here, saw three below our bird feeder yesterday morning. Didn't get a decent photo of them, one scattered too quickly. Did catch a brown one last week, the first we've ever seen in our neighborhood. Caught the little critter way up in a utility pole, hanging on for dear life. A gray squirrel chased it away shortly after I took the photo and we've never seen it again. The gray ones use the power and utilty lines behind the houses in our area as their own personal freeway, traveling along them at will. Here's the brown one:

That's strange, Bruce. He looks like the silver-gray that fell down our chimney. When I finally captured the little fella in our Earth Stove, and released him, he was about that same color!

Evening one & all,
My favorite subject lately has been my new kitten. I was going to post this in Rich's thread, but I thought it fitted this thread better.
The kitten's name is Natasha. The big guy who is yawning is Ming.


In fitting with the wildlife theme.


The plant now has a path through the center of it as it is one of her favorite shorcuts.

I'll just have to re-pot it when she gets bigger.
