The photo challenge this week offered by Anne is to show the various kinds of wildlife that like to hang around your home. Here’s a sample of some of the visitors that I get day or night.
I think if you have any amount of grass in your yard, these guys will show up…many of them.
Sometimes it sounds like bird wars going on in my backyard. There’s a pretty good variety of them swooping around staking out their spots in the trees and bushes.
Then there are those night owls prowling around. I put out a little night motion camera to see what was trying to make a home under my sunporch and caught this guy looking around one night. He looks like he’s up to no good but little did he know that garbage collection was the day before.
And of course there are plenty of deer. They seem to love my place for some reason…they even leave little deposits around the yard to let me know they were there 🙂 Here’s one in the back yard on a nice summer day and three more on a cold winter night just waiting for me to invite them in.
I usually take a peek out my front door at night before going to bed just to see if anything is going on outside. One night I looked out and saw this doe relaxing comfortably on my front lawn with two of her fawns in the shadows. I grabbed my camera to get a shot before she ran off. It looks like she’s just hanging out waiting for the movie to start…lol.
Thanks to Anne for coming up with the theme for the challenge this week.
