We live in the mountains so we have lots of creatures in our yard. I thought some you city people might be interested in seeing the things that we see everyday. I keep a folder of pictures on my computer just for the creatures that we take pictures of. Here are a few.
This is what she looks like uncurled.
Then there are these. Scorpions. We found quite a few last summer. Hopefully, they found a better home this summer.
One of Zane's favorites. Also found in the garage.
We see these beautiful Luna Moths almost daily on one window or another. I think they are very fascinating.
And last but not least, this beautiful mammal walked right by out kitchen window last summer. By the time we got the camera, he was at the road. There have been several bear sitings this year but we have yet to have one. I would love to see another one. They are so pretty. But I know the reason we are seeing them is because they are hungry. My parents had one in the back of dad's truck 2 weeks ago. I tried to get a picture but it didn't turn out very good. This picture is not great but it is good enough.
Doesn't he look cute and cuddly? But he is not and we will keep our distance.
We've also seen lots of deer and raccoons but I can't find my pictures. Lucy (our dog) seems to keep most of the animals away now. But we will start feeding the deer again and maybe they will come back.
