An Eastern Tiger Swallowtail(Papilio glaucus) that I found in a spider web by my rodent room. Too bad this beautiful guy was already deceased.
A Western mud snake (Farancia abacura reinwardti) that was in the front yard. The cat was acting strange and when I walked over, this is what she was investigating. I have been trying to catch on of these for three years now. Finally.
While I have seen many of these around my pond, I have never had the opportunity to get a really good picture. This guy was pretty cooperative. Here is a Water Moccasin (Agkistrodon piscivorus).
I found the cat staring at this little guy. Put hijm in a bucket for a phot and a release back into the pond. A baby Water Moccasin (Agkistrodon piscivorus).
I couldn't get a good in-situ picture, so I hooked it and took some nice studio style pics. This is a Southern Copperhead (Agkistrodon contortrix). We found it hiding next to our trash can slight under the back patio slab.
I hear these guys all the time in the evening, and occassionally see one flying through the yard near dusk. They are truly silent flyers. This is a Barred Owl (Strix varia) that I saw fly and perch in one of my live oak trees in the front yard.
We feed these guys on the porch, and I love to watch them. But I have never been able to get a pic as good as this one. This guy was stuck in the rafters of the new building and worn out from trying to escape. He let me pick him up. This is a Ruby Throated Hummingbird (Amazilia yucatanensis).
This little Nine Banded Armadillo (Dasypus novemcinctus) was diggin in the yard and I picked it up to move it out of the way of the dog. He barely had his eyes open, but was rooting around with the best of them.
