Wild animals in out lives
Welcome and uninvited guests. Welcome because we have never had deer come in our yard before. We lived most of our lives in a metropolitan areas. They are so spooky that the slightest move or noise they are gone. I took this shot through are glass screen door, I think some people call it a storm door.
The uninvited part of this picture is that if they got in our garden, they would have it demolished I a few in a few minutes. which reminds me I better go out and check if I closed the gate. We put in many hours planting.
We were on our way to a RV park south of San Antonia,TX when I spotted this critter along side of the road. Being that we were in our motor home and towing a SUV there was no room to pull off the road. We checked into the park and I drove our car back to take this picture.
I thought many times about posting this picture and felt that not everyone would think the same as the person that put the beer bottle on the armadillo.
Made me wonder as I was passing it by with the motor home is he dead or just drunk.
When I took this picture above, I remembered a story a camper in Jasper, Canada told me. It was about a a highway south of the Canadian border – there were bears coming right up to the side of the road and people were feeding them. A woman wanted a picture of a bear eating out of her son’s hand. She poured some honey on the kids hand — . I don’t need to tell you the rest of the story.
This bird up above is a wild bird – so I’m asking , what is keeping that bird from punching that beak straight into the boy’s hand.
That is a great third shot. And love your question at the end – why didn’t the bird peck the boy’s hand to bits? It has a very sharp beak from the looks of it. Perhaps the bird was friendly. Or it was lonely, and was glad for some company. Or hungry. You never know. It looks very tame 🙂
