The bobcat and cowolf shown below were recently caught on a trail cam in my daughter's yard in Southbury. Pretty healthy looking animals.

These four pieces are the result of Sandi's recent painting course.

I recently took Nick & Cole to Waterbury/Oxford Airport for the Wings of Freedom tour. It was great. Gave the boys an opportunity to see a B17, B24, B25 and a couple of fighter planes.

These kittens were found under a piece of abandoned farm equipment in a field in PA.

Taken by my trail cam at 7 A.M. March 17th. Exactly one year ago the same trail cam took a picture of possibly the same animal.

First big storm of the season. Ten inches of wet, heavy snow. March 4th.

More visits from our friend who seems to have taken up residence.

This fox recently limped through our yard and stopped for a rest in the woods. Clearly hurt.

I've been told these caterpillars are deadly. They do in fact secrete a substance that can be irritating but they are not lethal.
Our butterfly bush is drawing many customers

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.

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.
