Ordinary Creatures

Saturday Critters
 
The first picture is from my trail camera. A deer strolls along the lake.


The little snail in the second picture is an ordinary fellow. It was slim pickings this week. I didn't even get any bird shots other than the great blue heron that I showed on Wednesday. (But he was a beauty!)

Here's a poster warning of an invasive insect that is new to our area: the spotted lanternfly. 

Next we have an insect or two on a coneflower.


Our last two photos are of farm animals. The horse looks rather coy to me!

The cow is just doing what cows do: eating in a field. She looked up briefly when I pulled over to take a picture.

    1. Yes, I reported it as spam but that didn't delete it like it used to. So I came back later and deleted it. What a nuisance!

  10. The deer is very pretty. And I'm afraid we have that bug here...or something that looks like it. Enjoy your week!

  11. The horse looks sleepy to me, but maybe that’s because I am! Oh joy, another invasive species to watch out for! Cheez... could we have any more problems ! (That bug is probably in Florida too. By now, everything seems to thrive there!
