One of the many, MANY turtles in the area.
Out in the back 40 we encountered 4 white-tailed deer. They were moving too quickly for me to get any really decent shots of them, but the experience was really cool!
Charles spotted this snakeskin on the side of this log. We took it home with us, where I measured it. It's about 4 1/2" long.
I saw this male downy woodpecker in the same area where I saw one a few weeks ago. As such, I'm assuming it's the same one and that it's probably nesting somewhere nearby.
A young American alligator, probably about a year and a half old.
A red iris. I've never seen them this color before.
Despite Charles' protestations that he's actually a decrepit, old man with failing eyesight and hearing, without him I would have missed most of what I've shared in these last 2 posts (except for the turtles, of course. They're too prolific at Northlake to miss.) As with everything else, life's just better when Charles is around, "decrepit" or not!
