    • Thanks, Lavinia. These were the critters I encountered walking the mile to see Nora and fuzzy.

    • Thanks, Rebecca. As I mentioned to Lavinia, these were the critters I encountered on may way to and from visiting Nora Owl and Fuzzy.

  1. Now that is a diverse set of images subjects! Actually never seen a porcupine in the wild (not really a Midwest creature) and you made me laugh out loud at the fish fart.

    • Fish farts are quite explosive. Porcupines are interesting, large rodents. Thanks, Brian.

  2. As a native German-speaker, there is always something funny with the word “turtle”, because we have “Turteltauben” (=European turtle doves) in Europe and learned about the word “turtles” in English, so the brain always feels the irritating double-sense as a joke – nice to see, you probably know. πŸ˜„

    • I love playing with words. It’s safer than playing with the wild critters. Thanks, Mary Jo.

  3. Unless the Fish name is mr. Fish, I think someone’s left out! πŸ˜‰
    I agree with Mary Jo, by the way! πŸ˜‰
    Your paradise has very interesting creatures and I love your interactions [even if some don’t talk back! ;-)].

  4. How nice your photos are! Are you the one who gives all your neighbors their names or did they introduced themselves that way? πŸ™‚

    • Hi Flo. I name them based on how their personalities of lack of personality stuck me.

    • Thanks, dunelight. I’m of Welsh decent and my Viking wife calls me a “bog dweller”. That may be why I like critters that hang out in the shallows and muddy banks around here.

    • You have a different type of wildlife in the urban environment. More of wild life. Thanks, Resa.
