I think that most people experience one of two initial emotions when wild creatures drop in for a visit...Delight or Dismay! Please share your encounters (and photo's) with us.

To keep threads of manageable length, start a new one for critters different from those being discussed in an existing thread.

Example: If the thread is primarily about Hummers, start a new one if you want to introduce Javelinas to the mix.
If the discussion is centered around Frogs and Koi, start a new thread for the bug that invaded the rose garden.

There is one critter that comes to mind that is a valid topic in all threads and deserves immediate notification and in-depth discussion whenever encountered....

Flyen Monkeys!

Jo...I have personally never seen one. But if I do, and I have a camera at the time, I will definitely attempt to get a photo and post it here for you!

Good luck.
If you do get a picture please share it with my wife so I can sleep inside the house instead of out in the doghouse.
