Even More Wildlife

You may be tired of the wildlife posts, but just bear with me. I'm a city girl, so seeing this kind of thing in my yard just astounds me.

Typically, the only wildlife we see (aside from when we are actively trying to catch them) is this variety. Some people think they're a big pain, but I think they're adorable.




Imagine my shock at seeing THIS outside my window this week.


I know they're around (as evidenced by the above referenced post), but seeing one roaming freely through our backyard was just weird. I feel like I'm living in Over the Hedge.

I like the skunk pic! I thought they only came out at night?

I think squirrels are adorable -- we even feed them because I love watching their antics and deck-to-tree leaps!

Tami - Skunks are crepuscular, which means they are active at twlight. Still, it was well past twilight. It was after 7:00 am. Shortly after I took the picture, the skunk went down our driveway and disappeared behind the neighbor's bushes.

Oh sure... blame the skunk! ;)

Ha, how cool. I have never seen a life skunk so close to my house. I know they're out there, but I think we both start looking for food about the same time.

Cool pics.

Wow... a live skunk! So glad the skunk didn’t leave anything lingering after he left! Yikes...

Great pictures...
