He looked so peaceful as he perched upon
the winter vines...
|Adult male "Woody"- always determined to find his favorite seeds.|
|He often placed himself in some precarious positions to get what he wanted.|
|Adult female "Winnie"- an approaching bird.|
|Juvenile from Woody & Winnie's brood this year|
|An upside-down view of the world|
|Carefully backing down the tree...|
|It didn't take long for the juvenile to learn how to hang sideways on this feeder and grab a seed.|
|Lizard displaying his dewlap and bobbing up and down...either he was trying to catch |
the attention of a female or he was trying to intimidate trespassers
|This one usually hid in my spider plant|
|Did you know that lizards like grape jelly? I didn't know either- until I saw this one lapping it up|
|I had put out the grape jelly to draw in the yellow jackets- this helped keep them away|
from the hummingbird feeders.
|Walking sticks are so strange. Plain-out weird-looking. This is one of only two I've seen this year.|
|I almost sat down on this fuzzy little cutie that trespassed upon my lawn chair. |
Does anyone know what species of caterpillar this is? Update: This is a Banded Tussock Moth caterpillar-
thanks to Theresa at Run-Around Ranch for her help in identifying it :)
|I still see you! A couple of grasshoppers tried to camouflage themselves |
in the green foliage of a nearby field.
