Snowball & Foxxy III, Sunflowers, And Hummers

July 31, 2020  •  5 Comments



The adventures of Snowball the silly squirrel continue. Several times she has ventured onto the front porch to chew on a couple of door mats. One in particular has several holes in it and we could never figure out why until one day when she was caught in the act. It's not the mat pictured below which is much less damaged.

These are a few more photos of the red fox that was hunting in the grove. After striking out there, it ran back across the yard into the woods.

I don't know where to start! I LOVE Fox squirrels and this one is so unique. We haven't seen one at all this year and I keep looking for them. LOVE the real fox too and it would be amazing to photograph. Hats off for the good hummer pics! They are a challenge!
These are excellent photos of the animal scenes or the flower in close-up.
Greetings Elke
Hello Brian,

The squirrels here have been eating plastic too, maybe it taste like soy? I love the cute fox. The sunflowers images are just beautiful. Sweet captures of the hummingbirds, they are my favorite yard bird in the summer. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Enjoy your day, have a great weekend! PS, thanks for visiting my blog and for the comment.
Love silly screwball. Great buzzers, too.
