If I can remember correctly and just by sheer luck looking in a book 'Forget-me-nots' rings a bell. I have a notebook of the species I found on this walk, which this flower should be in there, but I do not have the notebook here.

We stopped and helped this little guy the rest of the way across the road


Not wild, but I had a few visitors at work.

That's what I thought they were! I wasn't sure if they were forget me nots or lily of the valley from the picture. I've never seen so many in one place before. It looks amazing

This is as wild as it gets here - in summer only: the Mediterranean house gecko. Only extremely rarely a newborn baby gecko actually ventures into a house. The adults never.

I didn't know that there are Geckos in Italy. That's really cool!

Our wildlife has been scarce on sightings lately, as various hunting seasons going on. Did have a fox trot by my truck while i was waiting to turn the other morning...but i never have my camera at the ready when driving...just know they are getting rather settled in the city.

I agree! There is something peaceful and friendly about them. I have heard that in Asia there are large ones that actually do live in houses.

To a lot of older people, that's a bad sign. It's supposed to be a warning that someone in the house is going to die soon.

Well I'm not that superstitious.

EDIT: The bird also died, I think it might have fractured its skull.

My great grandma, who’s now 91 (I think), said that a couple years ago, she woke up one night to see an owl staring right at her through her window. That’s apparently supposed to mean you’re going to die soon, but it looks like that wasn’t true lol

Another superstition that I know of is that you have to count the amount of times you hear a stork click because that’s how many kids your going to have lol
I know there’s also a cuckoo bird superstition, but I can’t remember it. I think it might mean that if you hear them call, it’s good luck.

I LOVE this thread. Here are a few wild life shots from when I was working out west. I saw a lot of grizzly bears, black bears and coyotes too. I absolutely loved seeing the wildlife every day.

I had a couple that lived in our barracks room. Usually just hid under the furniture and ate bugs.

Could be mistaken but i think that is the aloof windmill. They are quite rare in this neck of the woods but known to be quite evasive when exposed to termites.

Looks like something out of a Disney movie. I was waiting for it to talk in Gilbert Gottfried's voice.

A sea star I found in Tampa

I went fishing in florida once. We put shrimp on our line as bait. For the life of us we couldn't catch fish but we did catch a starfish that crawled up on one shrimp and a sting ray that took the next [we released both the sting ray and starfish and we also went fishless].
