Spent today running some errands and not getting great owl shots ... I can hear them right now outside my window in the rain ... taunting me.
At Mom and Dad's house last weekend, a host of critters were hanging out around the waterfolly pond.
The wrens are raising a brood in the corner of the hurricane shutters that protect the big picture window which looks out over the pond.
On my own porch, the wrens are raising a brood in a Yuengling box full of tools to go back to the barn.
They won't be going anywhere for a while.
This frog was hanging out on the pond's rim, still as a rock, as a black racer slipped by in the surrounding shrimp plants. ( Racer not pictured here ... you see, they race and I ...).
The pond is also supporting tadpoles already.
If you build it and all that ...
