Animal Kingdom in Our Little Corner of California

The past two weekends sunshine took us out to the local countryside...and we were astounded by the array of wild life we encountered beginning with this young ostrich who enjoyed showing off her plumage! This older ostrich seemed to enjoy prancing back and forth in front of our car behind this fence.
And here is Puffy again!!!
I love this view of the "headless duck"!!!
This huge abundance of ducks/geese are living in a private home yard just a hop, skip and a jump from my dentist's office.
I am not sure what this little young llama was thinking of my picture taking as she stuck her tongue out at me!
Can't you just imagine what we could make from
the lush thick wool from these babes?
Or the yarn this lovely would give us for knitting?
I adore these curlly horns!
Wishing you a Happy Animal Wednesday!
A HUGE RAIN/WIND/HAIL STORM is coming our WAY any minute so if I seem
missing in action you'll know why. So glad we had our trees cut back!

    And not too worry about "the storm" far it has not been a big deal here after all.
    Bee happy to see you have llamas too!

    Spoke to Uncle Harry tonight. He's home from the hospital. No memory of my having been there. Feels weak but "better than I was" he said. He said he's winding down.
    He had a visit from grand and great grand children today and that made him very very happy. Thanks for all your well wishes.
