This turkey made it through Thanksgiving weekend. He seemed a little skittish when I saw him just off the trail in early November.
I saw Oreo (resident black and white feral hog) in the swamp near the nature center.
Other critters along the trail. It was interesting to see the squirrel eating a big mushroom.
A few tiny critters at Circle B Bar Reserve in early November.
We recently had a yellow crowned night heron on our dock. He didn’t fly away when I went out to take his picture. I didn’t get too close to the dock though.
Of course, the mallard came cruising up to see if I had a handout.
A red bellied woodpecker has been a regular in our backyard.
I saw this squirrel resting in our tree. When I got closer he didn’t move. I was beginning to wonder if he was still alive. I got pretty close and he turned and looked at me. I left him alone and after a while, he got up and left.
These bloom all year here.
Another wasp nest in the palm tree.
I saw this weird glow outside right before dark and ran outside to take pictures of the clouds. The rain had stopped and the sun was trying to peak through before going down.
The mallards always show up when you are on the dock. Even in the dark.
A few things from the backyard recently.
A big wasp nest hiding on the trail.
Bees were everywhere.
Peeking out from the lake.
Snacking high up in a tree.
Pretty spider hanging upside down. These guys are really tiny.
Fluffy bushes blowing in the wind.
The bur marigolds made their usual November appearance this year. The park was a blanket of yellow as far as you could see. They don’t last long. This was in mid-November and two weeks later they were already dying off.
November is not the busy wildlife season at Circle B Bar Reserve but you have to go just to see the marigolds in bloom. It’s like walking through the land of Oz.
