Critters in our backyard


21.6.2015 A dragonfly (downy emerald?).


4.7.2015 A squirrel collecting moss for its nest.


23.8.2015 A hawk with lunch in its claws.


It didn't stay long and sadly these are
the best photos I managed to get of it.

Enjoy your weekend!

  9. We have lots of squirrels, but I've never seen one gathering up materials to build a nest!

  10. I imagine the moss would make the squirrel's nest soft and cozy inside. Nice pictures!

  12. Hello Gunilla!:) Thank you for your kind visit. What a great selection of critters. I would love to see a halk in my garden, and what a treat to see a squirrel collecting moss, something I have never seen, great capture.

  14. Great shot of the dragonfly, Gunilla, it does have a rather green abdomen. I haven't seen many this summer here. I see the squirrels more in the winter when they want to come eat the bird seed. I hear a hawk frequently but rarely see it, much less get a photo, so it's wonderful to see yours, with lunch even!

  15. Extraordinary images. And to have the hawk stop by with lunch 'in hand' is terrific.

    Thanks for stopping by this weekend and linking up at I'd Rather B Birdin'!!!

  20. Great shots - we have so many species of dragonfly here that I find confident ID almost impossible!

  31. Sweet ... You have great nature right in your own backyard. I guess the hawk didn't want you to watch him eating lunch, but you got some great pictures before he devoured his prey!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Lovely shots from your beautiful yard. Hope you have a great week ahead!

  33. the squirrel is my favorite picture, it's soo cute. I am not so fan of insects, :) !

  34. Great that you know the Emerald Dragonfly foot grave to honor. I've never had this before my lance unfortunately. The squirrel is also really nice and the hawk is a good catch!

  35. Great photos Gunilla :) When I was out yesterday I saw dozens of dragonflies flying around but did not get a photo as nice as this one. Great detail.

  36. Hi! Many critters in your backyard. The squirrel photo is very cute. Thanks for sharing.

  37. Squirrels just don't seem real to me, we don't get them here in Australia although I did see one for just a moment at the zoo. It never occurred to me wonder about their nesting habits. Moss would be quite comfortable.

  38. It's a great privilege to have such a range of nature right in your own yard.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I will return your visit (if I haven't visited you already), but please be patient. I might not be able to do so until the weekend. Take care!
