Yard Creatures

Here are some random pics my hubby took of our backyard creatures.

We love green anoles.  Our little dragons of the deck.

Speaking of dragons...

If you've ever seen a moth with it's head missing, this is most likely the culprit. I wish I could take the credit for this fantastic picture!  Hubby was in the right place at the right time!

For several years we had a spotted skunk living in and around our shed.  One year, it moved onto the patio in a pedestal sink bowl (still in the box) that we never got around to installing. When we moved it (box and all) to the woods we must have offended it because we haven't seen it (or smelled it) since.  I kind of miss the little guy.

We had a beautiful gopher tortoise living just into the woods and it would come into the yard quite often to chomp on the grass.  One day our neighbor found it in her front yard and put it in her fenced back yard.  She told us weeks after finding it how she "saved it".  We never saw the tortoise again.  Who knows what happened to the poor thing not being able to get back to its den.  Very sad.

This is just a cool looking creature.  

I'm hoping my back and neck will cooperate this weekend so I can do more leaf mulching and install some border bricks. I need to hold off on hefting bags of soil for another week but that's okay. Still plenty of items to cross off the to do list.
