These lovely ladies came to call a couple of afternoons ago. It was just at the time of day when that golden glow falls over our world. These two are taking aim at the pomegranate fruits that are on our neighbor’s bushes. I don’t think they could reach them, so that accounts for their disappointed look.
Fortunately they had a protector on guard (see below). I was able to sneak out onto the deck so I could take pictures with my actual camera without having to use my iPhone or shoot through the double-paned windows in my kitchen. I don’t think they knew I was there, but right after I snapped about a dozen shots, the wind blew the grasses . . . and they were off.
We heard them again the next night as they jumped into our yard, trotted along the side of the house, jumped the front fence, and went out across the street into another neighbor’s yard.
I know they are pests in many parts of the country, but we are so delighted to see them here, even if they do drain the water pond on a nightly basis!
I added a bit to Animals Spotted.
