Wild Thing


New urban wildlife spotted in our yard today! Sadly, for me, it was Tony who spotted and photographed this handsome critter. He is a White-belted Ringtail of the Clubfoot family. They are 1.8-2.2 inches long. I almost never see dragonflies and I’ve never seen one like this, for sure. I’m glad he digitally captured it but I wish I could have seen it in person. Isn’t he gorgeous? (Click for more detail.)


And, because I don’t feel “right” not having any photos of my own in a post, here are a couple other sights from the ‘hood this evening.


Neon aloe.


Representing a species rarely seen here, this is our neighbors’ dawg…

    I can’t help but smile at that last one you tossed in — cute little guy peeking through
