Springtime Animals

Posted on

There are highland cattle that live around the corner from us and they are the shaggiest, sturdiest, cutest animals.  One of them recently had a calf and I’ve been itching to get a good look at it.  Today the cows (and the one horse) were basking in the sunshine and I had a pretty good view of the baby. I stood at the fence snapping some pictures with my zoom and that apparently made the mother suspicious.

Meanwhile, we may not have any baby animals at home right now, but you didn’t think I’d bring out the Easter decorations and be able to resist staging some guinea pig holiday pictures, did you?

Easter Bunny? Easter Piggie!
I keep checking the pond for signs of our frog, but he hasn’t yet emerged. However, I did hear spring peepers for the first time and more and more crocus are blooming. Spring is here!
