    How cute is that! I hope Poe hangs around after s/he is released. That would be nice!

    Cheers!

    Very cute, but those are the things that rip my water plants to shreds. A whole flock of them descends every day and just starts tearing things apart.

    Me and critters.

    It's actually pretty cool watching grackles catch & eat minnows--never would have believed it if I hadn't seen it. I like Poe, Gin! (But then, I'm a fan of grackles--sorry, Kev!)


    Cheers,


    Rob

    Cute little bugger! Do you think Twiddle will be jealous? Speaking of Twiddle, have you seen any sign of him returning?

    why me?!?! don't I have enough issues with chickens and skorpians and a snake that scared the stuffing out of me the other day. Went out to mist orchids and the funny looking stick starts racing around the patio. Turns out to be a rare keys ringed neck snake.
