I'm really sorry I haven't been around much. I'm trying so hard to catch up on finishing swaps. I promise I'll get to your blogs soon!

Meet Hero. He is an 8 year old Shiba Inu. How do we know? Yesterday this dog was running along the highway just a block from the interstate. My daughter pulled over and he just jumped in her van. She brought him to my house then her husband got online and on the phone to find out who he belonged to by using the tag. After an hour and half we found his owners and took him home.
Why am I ticked? #1. He shouldn't have been running loose in the first place. Rhonda gave the man a piece of her mind. #2. The guy said he runs all the time. JERK #3.The humane society didn't care less at first. I guess they were rude to Gil but finally told him who the tags belonged to. #4. Hero is probably running loose again today.

Here is the Bernie baby.
Doing a little checking right now and find while male calico's are rare they do occur. The color gene for calico's occur on the X gene, XXY males exist and can be calico.

The first photo has only been cropped. Straight out of the camera. The second has had the Orton effect applied.

These Gopher Tortoises were in heavy battle. Sound like ram's horns hitting when their shells clashed.
This one was eating and not paying a bit of attention to me. Here he is about a foot away.
This is an infant Gopher Tortoise. He was such a cutie!
This female Roseate Skimmer dragonfly was enjoying the sun and keeping her eyes on me.
This is a Green Metallic Bee on a wildflower called Beggar's Tick.
This MEXICAN SPINY-TAILED IGUANA was also enjoying the sun. I'm lucky to have gotten a few photos before he scurried back into his den. These are an introduced species here and a danger to our native wildlife.
