Last night when I took Toby out to potty, the moon was so bright and there was a bright red dot above it, I went and got my camera and took a pic…I wish I had a telescope. You can see it in this picture. Then I went back in to tell Jeff and when I came back out it was gone. Google says this "The planet Mars trails the Moon across the sky tonight. They climb into good view by 10:30 or 11 p.m., with Mars to the lower left of the Moon. It looks like a bright orange star."
But the pics are still kinda cool.
So then when I uploaded the pics I realized I had a bunch of animal pics from the backyard on the camera. I keep a camera on my window sill, ya never know what will show up in the yard.
The bunnies are always fun to watch.
I love when the road runners hang out. Meep! Meep!
I think I shared these guys already…I have not got a pic of the three of them yet in the water bowl…they are very skittery and one always hops out before I can.
This cute little bird whatever it is. Probably thinking "I smell toad."
This little chunky monkey ground squirrel. I always call them prairie dogs. He's like "you looking at me?" I asked Jeff I wonder what they thought the first time one of them stood on it's back legs…cause really I don't think they have always done that right? I mean back in the beginning of time. They really are cute, but a nuisance, look behind and you can see how they have dug under the backyard kitchen….grrrrr….
I have even suggested veggies, and he chowed down on them. Ha!

Hi Diana! I love your critters photos! We used to have two prairie dogs when we lived in New York. When we moved to Tennessee we brought our surviving one with us but eventually he passed away, too. They are fun pets and are very social, even with humans! But I understand in developed areas that they can be a nuisance!

I would never even think to have one as a pet..they do remind me a little of a kitten when small, they are fun to watch, but love to dig holes everywhere.
We never had them in Mesa, but when we moved out to the boonies, we moved into their backyard. Hugs, Di

Awesome pics!! Be careful of the toads – make sue they are not the poisonous ones that are fatal to dogs….xoxoxox

Hey MAMMa, they probably are the poisonous ones, just smaller…luckily Toby is old and does not mess with them. Love you, Di
