As I was scrolling through pics of the past few months, a critter category or theme seemed to jump out at me, so here are some random critter pics:
The first 2 are in honor of our stray/outdoor kitty who has been gone for a few weeks now. He had been gone for a couple of days, came back, then took off, it seems for good. His straw bale house has been dismantled and we kinda miss seeing him around.
While the “pretty nest” didn’t fare well, we also have a robin’s nest under our deck. There’s no way to get a good picture of it without putting a ladder on the patio below the deck, so we peer through a crack in the deck boards from above. There were 4 eggs, all of which hatched. The babies are now quite large and are very packed into the nest.
The moth is a Giant Leopard Moth that I found in the garage one day. I had never seen anything like it, so of course I promptly googled images of “large white moths with black spots.”
We’ve also been quite entertained by the squirrels, chipmunks, and birds out the front window, which now include hummingbirds, thanks to a new feeder on the porch that they managed to find in less than 2 hours.
