Since I tossed in an extra post, and since today is a holiday in the US, I’m going to go easy on the word count. I heard that “phew!”
The gallery below includes a few photos from my recent walks with Maddie. She’s pretty patient as I make her wait while I take these pictures, but I think he wonders why we aren’t trying to catch the animals we encounter. I tell her that we share this place with them, and that that’s a good thing.
Happy Independence Day to those of you in the states.
We run into this larger bunny fairly often on our walk. Quite a bit bigger than the one living in our yard.
We walk through a park with several sport fields. They have to keep them green.
I think this guy was hoping I was carrying some nuts. He has to come to our house for those.
We’re on our way home here. Maddie is hot and not interested in stopping to smell the flowers.
The recent babies are growing up and taking care of themselves.
I think this is a Cactus Rose. It’s in the yard of a woman that loves to see Maddie.
She saw Maddie, but she didn’t run very far. She was back out by the time we returned.
This Morning Dove was kind enough to let me get its picture in front of the full moon.
We think this might be a Downy Woodpecker. We do see them around here, but I think they have white stripes on their heads. This guy wouldn’t turn around for me.
This little guy ran away from Maddie, but he didn’t run far. I think he was posing for me.
