Here are some more pictures of the wildlife!
I'm not fast enough to catch a picture of the hummingbirds,but we did see this woodpecker awkwardly helping himself while the sparrows and finches looked on incredulously.
It's through the window screen, but that's a quail parent and its babies.
Of course I would try to get a better picture than that!
Can you see them now?
Suddenly, the babies took off towards the big bush, one parent instantly followed, & then we discovered that the other parent was right behind the palo verde trunk. What a blur of legs!
This is what I found outside of our front door this morning.
The baby has hatched!
What a striking family resemblance.
I love zooming in.
Such a startled look!
There was also a minor scorpion incident this evening but I'm not going to show a picture of that. >_< The ants and roaches have started up again in full force and I'm crossing my fingers that we don't have any more assassin bugs in the house. Regardless, wasn't I right about all of the sightings? It's one of the things I love the most about living out here (and one of the heart-stopping qualities).
Alright, I took a break from my break from crocheting a baby afghan blanket and now need to get back to scrapbooking. See you soon! <3
