Mixed critters

As the days become shorter and colder, the dogs and I don't get to the golf course all that regularly. However, last weekend we did and I spotted interesting wildlife, a pair of duck on the dam and photographed the flora and grasses. 
A hare had been asleep in a copse in the middle of the fairway. It jumped up and hared off (excuse the pun!) into the distance
Fortunately Eddy was a little way to the right and didn't see this critter!
A pair of Yellow-billed duck create a serene scene
A stalk of wild grass made an interesting subject - taken against the early morning light

From my office I look out on several plants and their shadows

Ambrose snuggles up to Dad Ginger in a sunny spot
Ginger often sleeps with his tongue out - as does his son, Ambrose

Ambrose and Ginger eventually woke up.
 Ambrose went out into the garden - to sleep! 

Then it was Shadow's turn to sleep in the sun puddle

I'm linking my post to Viewing Nature with Eileen, here



  1. The shot where the one cat is on top of the other is hilarious. This would have made a brilliant shots for Friday's Hunt ' at rest'. Your hare could be Q for quick and any of the shots could be 'yourfavourite' why don't you link it in this week Jo? Have a lovely weekend.

  2. Hello, Jo! The hare is cute, great sighting. I like the yellow-billed ducks. The plants and the shadow captures is pretty. Ginger and Ambrose look so cute sleeping together. Adorable shots of the kitties. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!
