In previous posts you may have heard me mention that I live in the country. With the cows and the roosters that I can hear from neighboring properties, many would say that we do in fact live in the middle of nowhere. Well today I am here to change that description of our homestead to wildlife sanctuary. I will now state my case in pictures.
Almost a year ago I backed my car out and looked to my left to find this alligator. HOLY CRAP I started hyperventilating. No joke! I still look both ways when I walk out the front door.
Then we had another alligator take up residence in the lake behind our house in May. Great, just great.
On Sunday I opened the back door to let the Team Leader out and this is what I see. Some of the other residents had been talking about seeing this, but honestly I thought they were smoking crack. Now who's the one smoking crack?
The bald eagle was very majestic and HUGE. It was sitting across the lake eating a fish, but by the time I got my camera and the correct lens it was flying away.
And then there is this rare blue bear in our house.
I am told it is very rare to be able to get this close.
Let alone capture a smile.
Ok maybe this one is a lot less harmful than the other animals roaming our wildlife refuge.
Have a great week!
