Mike,
Man that owl is still buggin me out
But most disappointing is no fornicatin pics.
Were you slow or was he fast ?
Well,
I witnessed a session & wanted to share it with y'all.

This guy is very aware when his girl is around.


So he commences to do his slinky dance
He gets low & slinks around like he's gonna sneak up on her.


Then he puts the bite on her.


Then she gives him the slip.


More biting


More slipping


We even had a casual voyeur cheering
from the grand stand.


More biting



A lil sweet talk


And we're done

Check out these 2 doves

They are watching the flower pot hanging on my balcony

Because inside of it is their freshly hatched chick

Come on Will - you need to put more info about your Dove factory! The pots are right next to where he hangs out in the afternoon. Literally the other side of the screen. The Doves started a while back and he has seen several litters grow up and return to have their own chicks. I've been harassing him for a while to post pics. Where are the images of the "first flight"?

Love the lizard story Will!

I have my ceramic kiln in a redneck gutted clothes dryer to protect it from the weather. But if I keep the door closed, the birds keep getting in there and trying to build a nest on top of the kiln. I'll open the door and there's a double handful of sticks, leaves, and grass. Somehow a kiln that reaches 1900 degress doesn't seem like a good place for bird eggs and combustibles!

WOW. Closeups of the little birdies. Nice.
The rains we had last week caused a swallow nest above our front door to collapse to the ground, even though no rain ever fell on it. Might have been poor construction too. The eggs were shattered. BUT the parents just started rebuilding on the opposite corner. They aren't going to give up, how could they do that. Never give up. Today they were chattering away at each other, happy as could be, starting over again.

You guys ever try to snatch a butterfly
out of the air with a camera ?
Man that's hard to do.

Capturing butterflies or bats in mid-flight is 'pert-near impossible, nice ones Will.

Had a visit from our local gang the other night, with babies yet.
Plus I've lived in the desert for almost 60 yrs. and I have never seen a rattlesnake eating a dove. It's a little hard to make out on the last pic, but wonders never cease.

Holy Crap Tom, I didn't know there were bears in Florida- I thought those were a northern US thing. From the looks of picture #2, there's gonna be more bears in FL!
