I've been told these caterpillars are deadly. They do in fact secrete a substance that can be irritating but they are not lethal.

A frequent visitor to my yard.


Spring time in my yard.
Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home (if you're a squirrel!)

I discovered these photo worthyobjects on recent trip to Fairfield Hills. A gnarly tree; a lonely bale of hay under a lightning struck tree; an abandoned tractor; and a weather beaten door on one of the old brick buildings shown below.

Our bird feeders & yard were a very popular place on a recent summer afternoon


We ran across this little guy on a recent walk in Naples. He was grazing by one of the many ponds in our community.

Four turkeys at our front door-Late January


Spotted in my daughter's yard in Southbury, CT, Nov. 17, 2015. The animal seen here is very likely some sort of hybrid. Too large to be a coyote and probably not a wolf. Best guess is a cross between the two. Photo compliments of Becky Sullivan.
March 5-a well fed coyote spotted in my daughter's Southbury back yard not far from their chicken coop.
