    I wanted to start this thread to share the wonderful things I see in my backyard. Just this morning, I saw a deer and it's fawn walking across our backyard. I tried taking a picture, but they nestled behind our pine tree to nap. The fawn still was so young with its white spots. So cute!!

    Here are some pics of what we see here...some were taken last Fall.

    I really love where we live. Hope to take some pics of some of the other animals that cruise thru our backyard soon!! :)

    I just love hearing of the different animals that are around the world!! Toads are very cool creatures...we had a Toad house in our garden which was just a delight to have!! I am not familiar with the Krestrel, but will research that one to see!

    Our squirrels here are starting to fatten up which makes me worry for an early winter. Hard to believe with all the heat we have had.

    I will try to take some pics of our squirrels frolicking on our grass. They are really funny to watch! :)

    That would take me for a surprise myself if I felt that on my foot!! LOL!

    We have groundhogs here (I think it's your equivalent)...and they are cute...but very destructive to our garden if left unchecked!

    Nice photos, skimonkey. I rarely spend time outside, but there's nothing that cool to see in my backyard.

    One side of one of my houses overlooks a neighbor's pool, and the house was recently sold and I made the mistake of looking over and saw the new neighbors nude sunbathing. Given their age and physical shape, shudder, I try not to look out that side of the house any more during sunbathing season.
