This little guy is about the size of the head of a pin, but oh what an amazing species. Check out his green eyes, black toe nails, whiskers, long legs, and his hose like mouth piece.

The doe had mistakenly stepped into the nest of the Red Winged Black Bird. The bird tried his best to move the doe along. Finally she turned around and jumped away in her own good time.

I spent an hour with this little guy who had either a nest or a storage container buried in the ground just a few feet from where I was sitting low to the ground. The chipmunk initially came with a huge well compacted bunch of leaves in his mouth, ran as fast as he could leaping across the grass, buried into his hole, then came out and ran away. About five minutes later he came back again and again, no longer with leaves showing, but his cheeks full and bulging. Although it was an easy target, I only got a few photographs of him in midair and in focus. Most fun hour I've had in a few weeks.

Had a wonderful get together at my house with very special friends for dinner today. We figured out we have been friends for 34 years, but we have not all gotten together for probably 20 years. Too too too long.... These were my old church friends. Oh so fun to be together.

Found these beautiful, but scary ferocious and carnivorous Tiger Beetles on the floor of the woods in Pauling's Farm in Valley Forge today.

The little wood duck (in front) was all alone as I entered the trail where he was wading in the stream. He quickly climbed up the bank and joined the very welcoming Canada Geese family at John Heinz National Wildlife Federation

My friend and wonderful photographer Christian Hunhold published a beautiful photograph of one of the coyote pups in Valley Forge yesterday. It was so good I made him promise to take me to where he had found them as I have not seen any of the coyotes for a good month. We went to the location today and waited and waited and waited. I was inspecting little bugs on grass stalks and just looked up for a minute and there was Momma on the ridge overlooking Christian and me. She was as relaxed as she could be, but we could tell she was a little annoyed that we had interrupted her plans with the babes. They did not make an appearance. It was still a thrill to see her. And here she is for your viewing pleasure: (Click that old girl for a better look.)
