THE LESSER SPOTTED WOODPECKER:
THIS WAS MY FIRST SIGHTING, AND I WAS QUITE SURPRISED TO SEE HOW SMALL IT IS:
SPRING FLOWERS COMING INTO BUD.
PINTAS, GOING DOWN SOME STONE STEPS TO THE ORCHARD, actually took this photo two springs ago..
FEMALE WALL LIZARDS
FISH IN OUR POND, taken one day last week when I went to feed them.
ALSO BY THE POND, A TOAD IN HIDING! :=)
IS THIS A KIND OF RAT ANYONE!!! MEL CHASED IT DOWN A ROAD ON THE FARM,
IT HAD NOWHERE TO HIDE; AND I GOT A GOOD LOOK AT IT'S TINY EARS AND SHORT TAIL.
THE GREATER SPOTTED WOODPECKER
