    My front yard (garden) is quite large and this image of the red squirrel was taken with a phone, so the image is poor.

    I have built a small breakfast table for him and, what I assume is his female friend! Red squirrel in Ireland are now quite rare, having been decimated by the larger Grey squirrel and the Pine Marten .

    My wife took these shots early last summer.
    The herons had built a nest on a piling in an very active eagle area (they are not nesting there this year).
    An eagle had just stolen the last of 3 baby herons from it's nest and this was the reaction of the parents.
    Apparently this is their grieving display...

    One of our busy little neighbors during our stay in Costa Rica last week. They look cute and all but make quite the racket (howler monkey is a pretty appropriate name come to think of it :rolleyes:) and like to play havoc with the power lines!
