Photo Share: Coons and hummers

Hi Sarah, Happy Black Cat Day to Miss Dolly!
Sharing some photo’s of a coon still living in our tree. I would like to think it's our original coony? He is so big I have no idea how he gets in and out ? We always seem to miss that!

We had a Hummer traveler come Oct 21st I believe she headed south 25th she stayed for several days. I love the picture on the cone flowers it shows you how late in the season it is;) I grow Black & Blue Salvia every year on the deck & it lasts until the first frost, a hummer favorite here!

We also saw our first male junco yesterday. Snow is coming. Use whatever you like. Hope you & Dolly have a good day!
WONDERFUL! I think raccoons are all hair. The internet says they can weigh 7-20 lbs. It must be a squishable 20 lbs that can squeeze into tight spots.

My hummers left early this year even though I still have a lot of flowers. But I have lots of white-crowned and white-throated sparrows bopping around the yard. I am sure my juncos will blow down any time.

Thank you for sharing your photos. If anyone else would like to share a photograph of nature send it to bloubird@gmail.com with a description and permission to post it on the Friday Photo.
