      Hope you get some painted buntings soon – they are my favorite! The raccoon babies are precious. Love seeing them. Have a happy day!

  5. I just smiled as I went to each photo and then busted out laughing at the raccoons, oh how adorable! You almost had to want to let them inside, right? hee hee Beautiful shots, Pam, I’m envious of your Cardinal and Painted Bunting shot, stunning to see those two together, I love both birds! 😊

      Your comment makes me happy! Yes the raccoons are like little puppies rolling around and playing all the time. So much fun to watch! And the painted bunting and cardinal were my dream pair and it happened! Yay! 🙂

    I really like your blog. A pleasure to come stroll on your pages. A great discovery and very interesting blog. I come back to visit you. Do not hesitate to visit my universe. See you soon.

  7. Amazing, I especially love the armadillo! Do all these animals appear in your backgarden?! Here in Ireland the most exciting thing to visit our gardens would be a fox or badger, I’m blown away that all this wildlife is at your back door! Wonderful

    • Pam says:

      That is so nice of you to write, and welcome from Ireland! Yes all of these animals are in our backyard, just outside the back door. We are so blessed! I think the armadillos are extra cute too. This weekend we saw mama bobcat and there was a fox in our flowerbed. We’ve had every once in a while an otter or alligator in our pond!

  8. So much wildlife! Cooool
