My contribution to TexWiscGirl's Good Fences #132. This is Amelia's new friend next door, Wicket.


So who is Wicket named for?

Wicket W. Warrick, that's who!

Late September Critters

My contribution to Michelle's Nature Notes (#393).



I took a little video, but didn't get much...the snake had another appointment.

P.S. Here's Nutkin:

Bambi, Monarch, Mocker

My contribution to Eileeninmd's Saturday's Critters #145. I went for a nature walk on the Washington & Old Dominion Trail on Thursday and was promptly greeted by Bambi.


Yesterday, I saw a Monarch Butterfly.

I'm also contributing to Anni's I'd-Rather-B-Birdin. Here's a mockingbird from my sister's backyard.

I passed this mockingbird on the trail. Usually they fly right off, but it kept singing to itself. So I got ready to record...and a string of bicycles came by. Then a plane from Dulles. Then more bikes, another plane...I was about to give up, and then there was a window.

Last but not least, here's Rory!
