Night Time Visitor (bottom)






A truly
lumbering,
very large
(-gigantonormous-)
frog...
we stumbled
upon at night.

His little arms
had joints...
and
he looked as if
he
could do push-ups
and hang
unto a tree trunk.
He was really strange.
We kept him
under
a laundry
basket for
our daughter
to see!
Just another
cool example
of how nature

is very
LARGE
in...

the
High Country

... here :)


And...
another recent
visitor.

  2. Is that a red-headed falcon? He's beautiful!

    Your daughter must have loved checking out that toad! He's HUGE!

  3. Hey guys!
    Yes Lynn; he hung around graciously for awhile but was indeed a strange fellow! It was pitch black out except for our houselights so although we took many photos of him...none would focus that well! My dog scared him out of the center grass on an island we have. He lives around here and must have been stumped by our attentions surely.

    Talon- It is a rather large woodpecker with corn in its mouth! Not a great shot (though) but his colors are exceptionally pretty!!! He doesn't come that close usually (hence the photo is stretching it!) Sadly, 'our' deer have all gone MIA; we are still putting out corn nightly (which Lakhi helps with...!) but fortunate for the birds...they also like the corn!!!!! They are all getting fat and sassy!
