Saturday's Critters

Again, I'm a day late for Saturday's Critters, but I've encountered a number of different interesting critters over the past two weeks, so here they are.

The Alpaca farm up the road shipped off its mature animals that we'd seen for a few years, and started this year with a group of young ones.  The other day they were in a paddock near the road and easy to photograph.

This sculpture of a crow sits on a stone wall at Keppel Croft Gardens.

On the paddling expedition I wrote about the other day I saw this Bullfrog, sitting still on a log only about two feet from me.

And this is the only damselfly that I see regularly, an Ebony Jewellwing.  We encounter them along the streams we paddle all the time.  They flutter very close, sometimes landing right on the canoe, but they don't sit still long!

I've been watching a farm down the road that has a herd of Scottish Shorthorns, very good for beef apparently.  Today they were in the field beside the road, right beside the fence so I could finally get a photo.

  1. That type of damselfly is the kind we always seen in Tennessee in the creek we played in. I love the eyes of the alpacas!

  11. Hello!:) What a good assortment of critters. The young alpacas are irresistible. They have the most attractive faces, as does the frog,...he he, I love frogs!:) The green damselfly is pretty, and the Scottish Shorthorns are attractive too,...with their almost burgundy coloured hides.
