One nice thing about being a night owl is that, when the days get too hot, the nights are perfect, and I'm not wasting them asleep in bed. A whole heap of critters agree with me, too.
I found these in my backyard, this week:
|Once the birds are asleep, others get a chance at the birdbath, resting on the "shore", or even going swimming. This weevil is following the edge around and around, looking for the exit.|
|Slug and springtail on birdbath.|
|Algae on my bare cement, and snail eating algae.|
I checked the new BirdCam's photos, and was amused by this snail. I was fussing around with flashlights and the tripod, and the BirdCam kept taking photos as I moved around. And in all the bustle, in each photo, there was the snail, moving right along, and somehow not getting stepped on.
|Long slug, going places.|
|"Look before you slither."|
|"Did I hear something behind me?"|
The door stays open until late. A few critters followed me inside.
|Pretty yellow spider on the wall by my desk|
|Very small moth, ditto.|
|Something in a hurry.|
Not a 'coon, not a skunk, not a cat, nor a fox, rat, or dog. It looks to me like a possum. I hadn't realized that we have possums here in the Lower Mainland.
And take a look at those toes!
