Saturday critters and other animals

As the days become shorter and the weather cooler, we're blessed with a variety of critters in and around the house. 

On Wednesday I posted about the White-bellied Sunbird which the resident Malachite Sunbird chased. Two days ago the White-bellied Sunbird arrived again with a female in tow.

Back inside the entertainment area, the spider I posted about a few weeks ago, has moved to the corner of the room. It seems to have grown...
Rain spider

Outside on the patio, a different type of critter was resting on the chairs.
Chappie, our fat house cat couldn't' decide which patio chair to lie on...
... so she lay on both !

I'm linking my post to Saturday Critters with Eileen here


  1. those sunbirds are beauties.

  2. Chappie looks a lovely cat and the male Sunbird is a gorgeous colour.

  3. Hello Jo, the Sunbird is gorgeous.. I hope the spider is not a poisonous spider. Your kitty is cute, I hope it is comfy using two chairs.Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

  4. Hi Jo!
    I loved the pictures of thebirds outside, so cute!
    I can imagine how much nature you have around, wonderful!!!
    Nice weekend

    Bia <°))))<

  5. the chair critter doesn't look comfy to me, but it must feel good.. love it... i love the color of the male head in the first photo and that spider would get no bigger around here.

  6. Love the cat between two chairs. I could not let that spider remain overhead.

  7. The sunbirds are very beautiful.
    I am partial to the cat :)
    Happy Weekend!!
    Peace :)

  8. What a shiny bird!

    Chappie sits where She wants.
