I have been seeing this beautiful threesome almost daily. They are looking for green grass and water. Bless their hearts, it's hard to find this summer. They get closer and closer to the house during their search.
I also have a growing family of rabbits hopping around. I just love to watch them. Trixie does too, but she gives them a chase for their money. She can't get close to them....thank goodness! I've been throwing out lettuce leaves near the edge of the trees and they disappear quickly. I don't know which family decided to have these lilies for a meal but was I shocked when I saw this:
The flowers were long gone, but the stems were still green and pretty. Pretty appetizing, I imagine!
Another species looking for food really bothers me! Take a look at this:
What a difference 3 1/2 months makes around here. Take a look at this shot taken April 16th.
Do you see the tops of the tree/limbs barely out of the water?
Look at those trees now.
Sadly, we have had the pond this low before and miraculously we still had live catfish the next spring. I've heard they bury themselves in the mud to survive. Hence the name Mudcat!
Have a great Monday all!!
