Exploring the Natural World
The World is filled with the wonders of Nature
I have always tried to be ready to document the wonders of our fellow travelers on our journey through this amazing World.

THE EASTERN BOX TURTLE
Removed this guy from the middle of  the road near my home.
Released him into the rear of my home and he or she had to negotiate a few setps to get to the comfort of the soil and grass. 
Maybe not the most graceful but sure did get the job done.
I later found that the Eastern Box Turtle numbers are diminishing and one of the main reasons is fatalites encountered when crossing highways.

BUMBLE BEE

While Visiting at The Falls of the Ohio Park . I happened upon another of Life's continual wonders. Another first in the continuing search into the mystery and wonder of life. This is the mating of a  Bumble Bee Queen and is a bit graphic if any are squeamish about these things.

EASTERN COTTONTAIL RABBIT

Sylvilagus floridanus

Lovable little Garden Destroyers. But they have a need for food too. Another one of my Cave Hill animal friends. Amazing how much we all have in common, yet each with our own defining characteristics . In this Video this little guy will demonstrate the art of scratching its nose with a hind leg.  Not as easy as it looks. I tried.

ROUGH - LEGGED HAWK

Tis a complicated world that we all share and nothing is assured. In this case this Hawk was looking for the next meal and by chance an opportunity did manifest itself

Opossum

Didelphia virginiana

 

The Opossum is the only Marsupial (pouched Animal) in the United States . This little guy was feasting on seeds and Peanutbutter put out each evening for the Flying Squirrels on the Oak Tree Feeder.
