Originally uploaded by ricmcarthur This young peewee/phoebe, I can't tell the difference, was sitting at the side of the road with the parents flying down to feed it.

He cheeped at me and showed no signs of distress.

Originally uploaded by ricmcarthur Curled up and sleeping with one eye open, this raccoon appears to have decided to sleep on a stump, not the most comfortable mattress.

It looked more like a cat all tucked up on a pillow than a raccoon. Maybe he doesn't like the grass tickling his ear.

On the way back from our walk he had left, hopefully to a higher perch.

Originally uploaded by ricmcarthur Actually it is a trick question. This is an adult and a young bird.
The youngster doesn't get it's bright red head until later.
It is begging for food.

This moth landed on the wonderful wildlife window and I was able to get a close up.

It is worth loading the large size for this one. Check its antenna.

Originally uploaded by ricmcarthur I don't know my dragonflies but this one just sat there allowing lots of time to take his photo, so I obliged.

The internet company is here right now, checking to see if I can get line of sight for over the air or satellite connection.
Cross your fingers for me.

I can taste you.

Originally uploaded by ricmcarthur Our wild flowers are suffering from a plague of aphids. Nothing seems to be feeding on the aphids yet.

I up loaded a bigger size as they are quite interesting in large.

we hosed them off the plants as we don't use chemicals in the garden.

Any other suggestions on reducing their impact?
