I stopped and got pics of 2 of them.





Awesome! Great shots. I love owls, they are such beautiful and interesting birds.

No fear he's just a little guy, about 4 to 5 feet long.


Cool! Be careful though, those little guys have a way of turning into big guys.

Recently I spotted a hummingbird in its nest, a few blocks from our house:

Lots of excellent photos by everyone.

Greg, do hummingbirds hum because they don't know the words?

Sad news -- I went to check on the hummingbird today, and found that the tree had been cut way back. No more nest.

They hum because they are not allowed to sing. Ask the only kid in the 8th grade who was not allowed to sing in the 8th grade choir. True story.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Big hummingbird, right outside my kitchen window.





I hope he's not waiting on me!

I found this little guy resting underneath some clutter on the side of the house and transported him to the back yard. It's a Florida Brown Snake, this one's 13" long and that's about it for these guys.

I believe that's a Dekay snake Frank. We have em' here as well. Had one on my layout awhile back in the process of getting ready to give birth. Got her out to the flower bed in the nick of time!

I didn't find a picture that looked exactly like the one in my yard. I couldn't decide if it was one or the other. Thanks Mike.

The backyard was busy today. Early on the Moor Hens paid me a visit. The Sandhill crane is on the nest across the pond, shouldn't be long now till the eggs hatch. But the Moor Hens better beware because the gator showed up this afternoon. Humm, 6' of shoes.

Now if you could get that gator to lay around in your front yard you wouldn't have to worry about door to door salespeople!
