Just a little adventure of some cardinals outside my window. \_(0v0)_/
This is a dialog of this woodpecker hammering away at the tree outside my window on a snowy day. This particular species, the downy woodpecker, has been known to join or create 'mixed species flocks', where different birds join in a single flock. It would have been a wonder to see this guy hanging out with many species!
They can peck out little 'caves' in tree trunks and wood to lay their eggs in, but I'm sure he's not making one here because he's pecking such a little branch. Unless your eggs are a couple millimeters long you can't stuff them in there! XD
Anyways, I hope you enjoyed the babbling of this "birb". Have a nice winter and stay warm! :)
A little story of a grasshopper I found at my new house. I hope you like it!
Challenge: In the comments section, if you can, please tell me what species of grasshopper this is, with the place you commonly see it. I found this one in Ohio. I'm really curious!
Have a nice day!
('ヮ,)/ Hoi there! Here's some facts about fruitflies, the cute tiny flies that crawl all over your... >[freshly], [previously], [old] ...cut lemons! Now... a bunch of facts about these buzzing fruitlovers!
ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ Buzz buzz I am a fly, Can't swat me, I'll never die!
It's that season, winter holidays! Whether you celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah or whatever celebration you enjoy, winter is an awesome season! The snow... The Gabe-the-Doggos borking jingle-bells and other winter songs... The snow- wait, where's the snow!? It's here at my place, but it wasn't in this photo. Well, time to spice it up a bit! WOOOO!
Just a lot of birds I saw outside my window. Nothing much... The bird on the branch that's big and brown with pink feet is called a Morning Dove. The smaller ones are male and female House Sparrows. Hope you enjoy this slideshow of birds!
I rarely encounter cats in the wild. They often are scared or indifferent (like the collarless clan/rouge cat that was avoiding me, even staring into my eyes and whipping his/her tail! I did not approach.). This kittypet was a whole different story! After close inspection, he/she walked up to me and rubbed against me! As you can see in another picture in the slideshow, his/her tail was raised in the air with the tip bent, which means that he/she is curious. Rubbing against someone is a sign of friendship and compassion for cats, and rolling around is a sign of trust! Wow, I made a little friend right away!
I hope you enjoyed this post, cya later! (I'll notify when the kittypet comes back. Hopefully I'l get his/her name!) Bye! Meoww~
Sorry guys, no picture today... (My camera had no battery, so thanks to Pixabay, where I got this picture! ) I just came to tell you that I fed a cricket!!
It was a little, young, scrawny cricket that was chillin' out in a corner. He was yellow-gray, like ripe wheat, but with grey on his back. I watched him for a while, squeeing over his cuteness.
Bolting to the computer, I looked up what crickets could eat. They can eat anything that isn't poisonous and covered with preservatives and pesticides. Remembering we have grapes in the fridge, I washed one very carefully, and pulled out a little piece. (about a centimeter wide) I sneaked back over to the corner, and the cricket was still there. Dropping the piece of grape near it, I sat back down to the computer, watching science videos. After a bit, I returned, and guess what? The cricket ate half, and was still at it! It got spooked by my sudden squeeing and walked away from me.
I am very happy that I fed such a cute little creature, and I will let him and his friends stay for the winter. (While writing this, I got up and noticed that he was making his way down the hallway.)
Have a nice, cozy Autumn everyone, and stay warm! :)
Pesky invasive species... They florped their way into North America and started chowing down on it's native plants... Well, here are some I found here in Ohio! (Sadly, we can't ship them back to japan. -n-) The first two are the same one! I found her burning up on the hot sidewalk and moved her onto a cool shady plant, which she and her friends relentlessly devoured... She was very clingy, I had to hold her by the shell and place her on the plant as she wanted to rest on me instead. I managed to get her on, and took that photo. So, that's my post! :D (read the captions on the slideshow!) See you on my next photography adventure!
Hi! I'm Iris! I just got into nature photography like one of my brothers! I really think I could keep doing this as a hobby. :D
