May 15th - Critters Everywhere

Walking in my yard, or driving down gravel roads, the array of wildlife is surprising sometimes.  One morning a hawk flew right in front of my truck. Just right there.  Too cool, and too fast to stop and pull out a camera.

We have a garter snake that lives in our yard.  I've seen it a couple of times.  I picked the cute little bugger up once.  The gophers I hate.  I have finally rid my front yard of them, but like the zombies of The Walking Dead, they are always out there, somewhere. 

One morning, there was a pair of pheasants walking just off the road.  They were just strolling across the field, and I was able to photograph them.  

And then, every once in a while, a deer will hang out in our yard in the daytime.  I see a lot at night, but not too many in our backyard during the day.

You don't get this in the city. Right?

The pair.  Husband and wife?
