Corner View: Fauna


Residents at the City Park Pond in near-by Cambridge, Ohio




The raising of goats and cattle is a big part of the farming community near by rural high school. Sheep are also raised, but I do not have any photos of them.



These guys tried to set up home and 'shop' on our garage last summer
right above our grape vines and extremely close to the driver's side of my car.
After I got stung, hubby eradicated them.

These two guys were fighting over who would remain alive
on my lily leaves.
I do not know who won,
but my bet is on the spider.

That's a 'smattering' of fauna where I live.
For more views from around the world,

  1. I have nest builders under the eaves on one side of my house. I haven't been stung but they keep bebuilding after I get rid of their nests.
    My bet is on the (very big!) spider, too.

  2. my friend in ATL has to have part of her roof sawed off since there were several colonies of bees making that spot their home. pretty crazy. she got to keep a giant jar of honey comb.

    getting stung would be where i drew the line, too. how exactly did your husband deal with them? curious.

  3. We had a nest of wasp in our previous apartment (in the attic). It wasn't much fun at all! ;-)

    Lovely photos. The last one looks scary to me. I don't like spiders...

    Hugs!

  4. Love that first shot! We've just discovered a huge wasp nest in a birch tree by the driveway here.

  5. Beautiful ducks. Not so nice wasp and spider. However, they're all part of the great scheme of things. We sometimes have hornets in Italy - they are scary especially if you're allergic to the sting. Also scorpions are not such fun.

  10. wasps are a big problem here in the summer - we have some species that are very big (a couple of inches long), and are deadly (literally).

  11. I my corner you are supposed to get at specialised person out to move the honey bees, not kill them. Wasps you are allowed to kill.

  12. I love duck and swan photos. So much fun. Not sure I could survive taking a photo of a bugs fight... especially spiders. You're a patient and courageous woman!
