No Sewing...

No sewing for me yesterday, but I did see this out my back window.


Can you see him perched on the fence in the center of the photo?? A hawk! I told my kitty, Truffles, that she better be glad I don't let her go outside!! I'm sure this hawk would not have been nice to her.

I live in the Kansas City metro area, but I still get to see a fair amount of wildlife. There is a large park and lake not far from my home and I guess that is the reason why. I have also had this visitor in the middle of the day. Yes...that's right a white tailed deer.
This next picture isn't very clear...and the creature in it was in awful condition. Near the base of the tree that is in the center of the photo is a red fox.

He had almost no fur. I had the camera in one hand and the phone in the other hand. I was calling DH to ask him what I should do because the fox looked awful. He was burying a what looked like a mouse or a chipmunk.

As you can see from these and other pictures I have posted on my blog from time to time....I share my city lot with a variety of wild creatures from time to time!

The hawk was looking right at you in the second pic! The deer was beautiful, and I too would have been concerned at the state of that fox. He looked sick. Great pictures!!
