Greetings everyone! This is The Daily Bone and I'm your assiduous doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel.
I know it's been a while since I last posted a report. But my ghostwriter has been working a lot. On her off time, she's been digging in the garden. But we did take a little time to look for incredible and amazing things in our yard.
Sometimes you have to look very carefully to find something. Do you see the little walking stick bug in this photo?
We carefully caught this bug and took it into the house for a photo session, and then let it go again.
Here's a bumblebee on a flower:
In other news, there's been a pesky little chipmunk stealing seeds the birdies drop from the feeders. I especially dislike chipmunks. They go sneaking through the garden, leaving their stinky footprints which I feel compelled to follow. I always get in trouble when I go stomping through the garden! Now take a look at this little varmint:
He thinks he's so clever to have gotten up onto the birdie feeder! I chased him away pretty quick! He'd better watch out, though. Mr. Cool Beans Cooper, our neighborhood Cooper's hawk has been very busy too. We've been finding piles of feathers on the lawn. I'm sure C. B. wouldn't turn his beak up to some chipmunk for dinner!
Here's a link to one of my favorite chipmunk related posts:
And here's a link to more information about Cooper's hawks:
