Large Luna Moth

The Luna Moth is a very beautiful moth and common in our area. We always see these moths late summer, early fall. This one is huge with beautiful color and markings!

My site is back up after many hours of work, it took me longer than I anticipated but that’s ok. I still have lot of tweaking to do that I will work on later in the week. I hope you like the new theme!

 

 

Huge Black Bear

We have had more black bears visiting us this year than I can count. This is a huge black bear that I have seen before during early evening hours just before dark. As you can see the picture was taken at 9:22 PM.

I really enjoy my trail camera!!!  Do you have a trail camera? What animal pictures are you capturing on your trail cam?

 

Three Bucks

I pulled one of my trail cam Sandisk cards and found over 3800 pictures taken since June 1. These are a few of the bucks that got caught on my trail camera!

All of these pictures were taken on June 28th early that morning.

Eastern Kingsnake

King-Snake

I found this Eastern Kingsnake in the garden, since I did not want him hanging around I caught him into a postal bin. This Eastern Kingsnake was every bit of 5 foot long and aggressive. He stood up at me several times, he acted like a king and did not want to be bothered. Kingsnakes give off a smelly musk odor when captured and they also vibrate their tails to scare you.

As you can see the Eastern Kingsnake is a black snake with a banded pattern on its back and the bands are yellow to white color.

Kingsnakes use constriction to kill their prey. They will eat other snakes, including venomous snakes like rattlesnakes as well as lizards, rodents,frogs, birds and eggs.

I took this kingsnake about a half a mile away from the house, I sure hope he doesn’t come back!

Do you have a lot of snakes in your area? What kind of snakes have you seen this summer?

Check out my blog post from last year about all of the Copperhead snakes we have in our area.

 

 

Beautiful Red Fox

This is the red fox that likes to hang around out home. Around 6:30 PM most evenings he is in our yard checking out everything and has come within 15 feet of me. I guess he is checking me out too! He is absolutely beautiful, these pictures don’t really show his colors very well.

He also hangs out on our driveway where I put out corn for the turkey.

Trails cameras are a lot of fun and you never know what you have on the pictures, great for security too.
