We have had a family of armadillos in our neighborhood. They are really cute ~ but driving poor Sadie crazy. Here are three of them ~ although Nate says the other day he saw four together. They are pretty much blind so you can almost walk right up to them. These guys are all juveniles who have made our area home.
Richard also spotted this beautiful bird on top of one of the trees outside. Sorry about the quality of the pic but I didn't want to go outside the screen and have him fly off (which happened about 2 minutes after I took this). It was a particularly large egret. It's amazing to watch them fly.
It's one of the things I love most about our neighborhood is getting to see all these wonderful creatures.
This last creature was NOT in our yard, thank goodness. This spider was HUGE! Like the size of Richard's hand huge. We've had these spiders in our yard but thankfully much smaller. While I'm not a fan of spiders, it was really cool looking.
