My 100th post!!!! And they said it wouldn’t last. 🙂
Had a great morning walk. I was up with the Robins and caught this one while the dew was still on the grass.
The first time I have seen a Sapsucker since early spring. This guy has just captured breakfast.
Only in my hood.. the goat lady. She and the goats had just walked a child to the bus stop. I love it! I think the goats are a tad spoiled.. really .. shouldn’t they be foraging for their own grass??
Swamp Sparrow and Swamp Deer! Mama and baby Wood Ducks, Bog Cotton.. I think.
Grackle, Yellow-rumped Warbler, low river.. this is mid-summer level, Common Yellowthroat
Anyone know about Dragonflies? I need to get me an ID book!!
This guy took a minute off from raiding my bird feeders!
For all you wanna be plant-based eaters, my supper menu: Bean Burgers, Red Cabbage Slaw, Oven baked sweet potatoes and carrots, sugarless rhubarb and strawberry sauce for dessert (sweetened with dates).
My plant-based eating hasn’t totally chilled me out. 🙂 This morning, I had an encounter with an aggressive, off-leash dog who growled and jumped on me, nipping my arm, totally ignoring his owner who was trying to stop him. This was not a friendly, pay attention to me, encounter. I became quite aggressive myself with the owner who of course, became defensive. He had let the dog out of the car, and said he didn’t see me there and since I was on private property, he didn’t expect to see anyone. I reminded him that he too was on private property and that he needed to have control over such an aggressive, large dog.. blah, blah, blah. Anyway, I ‘persuaded’ him to leash the dog until I got on the main road and he eventually offered profuse apologies. Kumbaya!
