Gray squirrel from last winter and some freshly-picked chanterelles:

Hellhog

It’s been a few years since I’ve seen one of these.

It’s an Eastern fence lizard (Sceloporus undulatus), and they are the lizards I used to catch by the score on summer “lizard hunts” with my grandpa.

In West Virginia, the local name for this lizard is “hellhog,” which is only the coolest name for an animal ever.

The lizard appears to be a gravid female looking for a place to lay some eggs.

This doe was so fine with my taking her photo, she made several poses.

I’m glad I got this photo of a doe in the woods today.

Oh and she had a fawn.

The photo just didn’t turn out as well:

Miley hasn’t been on the blog very much because she damaged a cruciate ligament in her knee. Her activity is greatly restricted until it starts to heal. The vet is not recommending surgery at this time, just lots of rest.

I can’t tell exactly what this chipping sparrow caught, but it was fighting it in front of me.

An indigo bunting

This is the first indigo bunting I’ve seen around here. What a gorgeous bird!
