I did eat turtle soup once, years ago, it was okay. I've always heard turtle meat taste like 7 different types of meat. I'm not sure if it's true or not!

Yes, Tequila. Is that what the sucker is also, tequila? I found it at a car wash one day. I also edited it from "work to worm", these old eyes!

Not tequila, mezcal. Mezcal has the worm.

Thanks. Some reason I always thought it was tequila. Probably was too drunk to noticed!

Squirrel being squirrely.
It's like 95 degrees F out there in direct sun. Yet, he seems to like it.

She's so fluffy!!!!!

Here's a fine gentleman I spotted sitting on my black taro plant the other day. A forktailed bush katydid. I like his stripey antennae.
I guess bugs count as wildlife? haha

Our hummingbird feeder is red with yellow flowers that are outlined in red. We also have a lot of wasps, but it doesn’t seem to be a problem. Somehow the wasps in our backyard are really chill lol.
So I just got bit by a wasp twice... they are not as chill as I thought they were :inpain:

Here are some butterfly and moth pictures I took while camping:




We were camping by a lake and here was the view :

So there’s this black bumblebee that loves to go swimming. I’ve saved this guy 4 days in a row, not sure if it’s the same one or just coincidence. All i know is I don’t see black bumblebees too often around here.

Small boys probably qualify as wildlife so I'll put this here. Oh, and there's an otter too.

Just spied this morning while fishing (gasp!) with my boys. I loved the bright blue color on this dragonfly.

Go to the zoo, take pictures of the native birds, lol. Did learn something though - New World vultures are descended from cranes and Old World vultures are descended from raptors. Anyway, some vulture pics and a crane (NOT native). I don't see the resemblance.

Looks like a stag beetle.

Judging by how this year is going I'd say stag beetle with COVAIDS.

Good thing I practiced social distancing with him then.
He was swept up and thrown outside right quick.
Didn't know beetles could get Covid. He wasn't wearing a mask over his horn, though. Lol

Back to the zoo today! One of the few places a person can go these days that doesn't require a mask! So what we have here is a spoonbill, a turkey and a trumpet vine after a brief shower passed thru courtesy of tropical storm Hanna.

Do you live in USA ? If so what state? Most of the zoo i know of are closed to the public.

I was thinking the same. We always buy season passes to the Columbus zoo. They're open, but you have to make a reservation and it's only 2 hours, which is not enough time, so we're waiting for things to go back to normal before renewing our membership.

Yes, Texas. Wide open spaces, 100 degree temps and lots of sunshine aren't really conducive to CV.

A lovely woodpecker... although not too bright. He's shown up twice on my porch, pecking the pressure treated wood divider

Yea Omaha is suppose to have one of the better zoos - never been but my sister has been a few times.

I know this isn't an animal but I'm pretty sure a plant could be considered wildlife?

Here’s our grass hopper friend who lives in our backyard


We also have a domestic bunny in our backyard. My best guess is that someone released it. It’s not the first time this happened. I’m going to ask my neighbors for a puppy pen and try to lure the bunny in it with some apples and carrots lol. Hopefully it works.

Maybe this should be posted somewhere else, but anyone know what creature these nests belong to?
They are on the side of my house.

I believe that's a Mud Dauber nest. We get those at the top of the inside of my garage door almost ever year. They're pretty harmless for wasps.

Thanks! I was thinking some type of wasp but wasn't sure. We had an infestation of yellow jackets last year. They found a hole that led to a crawl space that was connected to my bedroom. I was stung a few times and we had to call pest control twice. I was worried that it was happening all over again.
