Lens Artists Photo Challenge #225 Wildlife Close to Home

Anne is hosting this weeks challenge. Here is her post for Wildlife Close to Home.

These were all taken in my backyard of my old home on the lake. We downsized in July of this year.

After a big storm, the lake came almost all the way up to the house and a gator found his way very close.

Snakes frequently visited us too

My backyard was a photographers paradise! Throughout the years, we had bears, peacocks, deer, snakes, alligators, squirrels, birds, raccoons, turtles, and more! I miss it for sure.

Hope you enjoy my Wildlife Close to Home!

    I love your photos. The deer is exquisite. We recently moved (downsized) and we don’t have the lake or trees we used to have. Rumor has it that there are deer and bear in the neighborhood, but I haven’t seen any yet. We’ve been able to bring in some birds and insects with plants and feeders.

      Thank you so much! Yes we’ve seen rabbits and birds at the new house…hoping for more too! Our neighborhood just finished construction, so I feel we will start seeing more wildlife here too!
