Sometimes you don't have to travel far to see wildlife. Chances are you might find some in your own backyard! For months we've been having a Red Shouldered Hawk perch on a Catalpa branch in our backyard. I often hear it's shrieks throughout the neighborhood. I've even seen it carrying a vole once.
The other day I was watering some plants in the back yard when I came across a frog on a lily plant. I went and got the camera and was able to snap a few shots off before it hopped away.
There is a swale behind our house and during certain months of the year the frogs mating calls are so loud it is hard to sleep at night.
