Send in your good wildlife photos, please. Thanks!
Today we have a new contributor, Michael Schrank of Boise, Idaho. Michael’s captions are indented, and you can enlarge them by clicking on them.
Our backyard seems to be a haven for all types of wildlife and occasionally we capture some in photos. The first are of a wild turkey (Meleagris gallopavo merriami) that would appear in our yard last fall and loved to sun itself on the back deck.
We often see fawns in the spring. This poor little one was hidden by its mom right by the side door of the house in a garden.
Mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) often rest on the lawn for hours, often the whole day if no one disturbs them.
