Saturday's Critters #137

Saturday's Critters #137

Happy Saturday, it's time to share your critters and post. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who is linking in with this week's critter party.

I have some Florida birds and a lizard, we saw plenty of anoles or lizards while visiting Florida.


Duck family, the little ones in the grass were so cute.


A Muscovy Duck, they are strange looking.


Laughing Gulls on a light Pole.


Anhinga near the lake.


This lizard has a long tail and weird looking feet. I hope you enjoyed my post and critters. I am looking forward to seeing your critters and post. As always thanks for the visits and the nice comments. I also thank everyone who is linking up and sharing their critters.. Happy Saturday, have a great weekend!

  2. Wow - some great critters - I love the variety. That duck is one crazy critter and the lizard is very interesting - the way it can cling. Happy week end to you my dear.

  11. Nice birds! Those anoles have a knack for sneaking into our home. One set off the motion detector on our burglar alarm in Florida while we were in Illinois!

  17. that little brown anole at the end if one of Leonards and Lizzies cousins.. you will find hundreds of those.. a word to the wise. do not ever feed or pay any attention to the Muscovy Ducks. they are invasive and will take over and bring all their aunts and uncles and cousins to poop on your driveway and any thing else they can find.... been there done that...

  55. I've never heard of an Anhinga before. It has a neck something like a loon. - Margy

  56. Nice pictures and especially of that duck. It's indeed very strange looking.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Dearest Eileen; OMG!!! My husband and I were SO surprised to see Muscovy Duck♪ As I never knew this duck, at first glance it seems like this one has 2 faces; such a funny looking duck p:-) I Googled about this duck(^_^)v
    Hope your not having unbearable muggy hot summer, Dear friend.

    Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

  58. Of course, since the anhingas are very scarce these days in my neck of the woods, that was a special photo share....lovin' these Eileen.

    Your contribution for us birders at I'd Rather B Birdin' this weekend has been an awesome experience...thanks!!!

  59. Great photo of a lizard, it made me smile. I bought years ago a tin lizard which is wall art and Mr Wren screwed it on the wall facing downwards, which doesn't feel right. Lizards as you show go up the walls , not down!
    Have a great week!
