I've posted this before in a thread but this was in my Boston Fern - it couldn't have been but about an 1 1/2" tall.

I couldn't get a clear shot of this, but this is a beaver about a mile or two from our house. I didn't even know we had them here.

I ran across these on the internet a few years ago.
It took me a while to find where I had them stashed, but they were definitely worth saving and looking for

Ok, this is just the analytical mind in me speaking out, but the Sasquatch pic is a left-right mirror image. Someone probably did that on a pc.

BarbaraL, I knew that we had beaver around here, but until this year, I had never seen any. Early this Spring, we went down to my Mom's, and saw an active beaver pond on the way. Then, when I started fishing the lake that we live by, I noticed A LOT of beavers swimming around.

I like how your cat is just oblivious to the groundhog!! I had a stray rooster in my yard yesturday & my cat just laid there!!! I guess they know thier limits, since this rooster was easily twice the size of my cat

Here are a couple more. The ducks usually arrived around dinner time looking for handouts. They only show up in the early summer.

The other guy wreaks havoc in our garden. He eats flowers and veggies with equal interrest.
