Sorry to hear about the loss of your brother.Utar said:Back in 2011 my brother and I were in South Dakota. We rented a couple of Harleys to ride for a tour to see Mount Rushmore and the surrounding area. Last year in October my brother passed away and I miss him really bad. Here are some pics for the trip and some are of these little chipmunks they where so cute. lol

The Harleys we rented.
The cute little chipmunks we fed them peanuts and they where brave little guys coming right up to us.
There is a stand of trees along the highway that i like to drive by after a rainstorm....you sometimes see dozens of them coming out of the trees to shake the water off!Basil said:It’s only been the past 5-6 years that we are seeing them more. So still a novelty lol!
It turned out to be a wild rabbit lol. We named it Tobyjulifhy said: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 i can catch a few and send them to you. Since my outdoor kitty died, the rabbits have taken overjulifhy said:It turned out to be a wild rabbit lol. We named it Toby
More pictures of him coming soon
Is that a Black Widow spider ?MiaK said:I have always teach our son to not touch any spiders because they can be poisonous. (3yo back then) He played with his car good 10 minutes, then asked me to clean his outside car because there was spiderweb inside. Well I just started cleaning without paying much attention when spotted something black and shiny. You know it doesn't sound good right? It was a good lesson about hiding danger outside
We have screens on our windows to keep inside the house cool, and they double as a bird-collision preventative. If anything the birds love it as it’s easy for them to grab lizards and bugs from the screenAlgonquin said:This poor guy flew into my window yesterday - he was a bit stunned, but after posing for a few pics, he flew off. He didn't want to look at the camera tho.
He's a Cooper's Hawk. Biiiiggggg. About the size of a chicken. Look at those hooks! Yikes!
I've put up some more bird silhouettes on the window to help prevent future crashes
That snake is a Nope Rope...that head shape would have me not sticking around to find out!Crimson_687 said:Trapdoor spider!! Not very common in our area, but they’ve made a local comeback due to habitat restoration efforts and good weather. This is the male, who goes in search of a female, who stay in their trapdoor burrows
Also here’s a diamondback watersnake. Non-venomous, but still not to be messed with
This is a pair of white-tailed kite, or at least I think they are. Please correct me if I’m incorrect
They like to mimic cottonmouth (Agkistrodon piscivorus) in both body shape and temperament to deter people from messing with them, but they’re peaceful otherwise. They don’t want to mess with us as much as we don’t want to mess with themBetta'sAnonymous said:That snake is a Nope Rope...that head shape would have me not sticking around to find out!
Yep, and i have been chased by cottonmouths, so that snake wont have to worry about me noneCrimson_687 said:They like to mimic cottonmouth (Agkistrodon piscivorus) in both body shape and temperament to deter people from messing with them, but they’re peaceful otherwise.

My old cats had a war with the robins and blue jays so i don't either one nesting or even coming to visit in years. Maybe next year they will figure out that the last of those cats passed this winter. The rabbits have figured it out....i rather have the birdsPatriotthebetta said:I found this baby robin in the middle of the road, so I picked it up and put it in the bushes of my front yard so hopefully nothing could get to it.
I think it was a squirrel. We have a ton of coyotes because the city keeps cutting into the wooded area. We've seen them during the day as well which is a bit scary because I'm usually outside with my son. I know they aren't exactly dangerous as individuals, but you never know.julifhy said:Is that a squirrel?
You've caught the Wild Trash Bandit in their habitat!PerfectSatyr683 said:I just found these little rascals in my trash can so we had to dump the trash can out they scared me so much because I was putting my dogs poop in the trash
Looked it up, this is a banded tussock moth caterpillar. They should look something like this when they go through their metamorphosis.Donovan Jones said:Found this weird looking Caterpillar today, no idea what it turns into
