Funnel Web Spider

We have lots of spiders running around in our garden.  This particular one is a funnel web spider.  We encourage them, so they will eat all the pesty bugs we don’t want.

Petey almost always takes a nap with his favorite toy.

Captive Audience

DSC02592-2

How she knew, I have no idea, but she ran across the house like her tail was on fire and perched on the back of the sofa.  She sat, ever watchful.

This is what held her attention captive.  A five lined skink.

This skink had more problems that being stalked by a cat.  It appeared to have had a run in with a big spider web.

She Did it Again….

Our dog, Lucy, takes her job of defending her yard very seriously.

She caught this possum Saturday night.  Of the three that she has caught all have lived and that is only because they play dead.  This one was pretty small.  We brought Lucy in the house to give this little one time to make its getaway.

Northern Mockingbird

I stood and listened to this bird for quite a while.  It sang so many different bird songs, it was truly amazing.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
