Sky Watch Friday

Canada Geese, or perhaps we should just call them Florida geese since they live here year round now for some reason...

Golden hazy summer sunrise at Jacksonville Beach.

Visit for all the hundreds of SWF photos each week.

New House = New Neighbors

Not all new neighbors are welcomed, especially by my wife...

Harmless garter snake, but thankfully we've only seen it once a few weeks ago when it came up on the patio.

Delving back into the world of blogging little by little...

Stormy skies...

sometimes lead to double rainbows. :)

Baby Harry the Jaguar

The Jacksonville Zoo officially introduced their newest baby - a Jaguar born a few months ago and who was named Harry by the donors who bought the naming rights at a zoo fundraiser.  Pictures cannot do justice to just how cute he is: just like a normal house kitten only already much bigger and will eventually grow large enough to kill you easily, lol.  But for now he's just a kitten doing kitten things - exploring, playing with balls, pulling on trees, climbing things, falling off of things, and being just awkward enough while doing it to elicit a steady stream of , "Awwwww, that's so cute!" from the crowds.

There are many  more photos of Harry in his own Flickr set - here.

Probably not.  This isn't a Bull Frog.  Some type of toad.  I know someone who might be able to identify him, though... oh, Mr. FC?  Any ideas?
