One of the wonderful things about living on the side of a mountain in a rural area with lots of forest is you get to see a lot of wildlife. This guy paid us a visit yesterday, thinking he might get the bird feeder. I grabbed the camera and took his picture before I made a bunch of noise to scare him off.
I’m thinking he is about a year old, around 200 pounds. I didn’t see his mama, thank goodness! I do think that he has two brothers, if this is one of the cubs I saw last fall. Mama came by with three cubs in tow and they all ran up the tree in the front right about dusk.
I finally got a pic of the sweet hummingbird too. She has been enjoying the torenias.
Fast little thing, those wings are a blur!
Here she is over the word Home in the URL, I should have made this a puzzle, she is hard to see unless you know she is there, isn’t she!! Since there isn’t any red on her, I am guessing its a girl.
But now, the part you are all waiting for, the Giveaway Winner has been chosen by the random number generator!
