Chipmunk shucks an entire ear of dried corn in record time and stores it away for cold winter days. That is not an easy task when the corn cob is bigger than you are!

These attractive male and female Marbled Orb Weavers are taking a daytime nap together. The male has attached his "mating thread" across her web and I anticipated much spider action later

Sphinx or Hawk Moths are the largest Backyard moths and only live for about a week or so and never eat so they have to "make hay while the sun shines" when it comes to mating.

The bold pattern of eyespots on the wings mark this as a Buckeye Butterfly. The eyespots likely serve to startle or distract predators, especially young birds.But this is the darker Mangrove buckeye, West Indian buckeye or tropical buckeye

Three baby Red Squirrel "Kittens" are ready to leave the nest box in the Great Smoky Mountains. I'm the first human they've ever seen.

Fish Crows noisily go about the business of building a huge nest of twigs high in a long-leaf pine tree.

Red Squirrel youngsters have left the nest box - always a blast as they explore their new world. This one tries tackling a hard ear of dried corn - it could use some lessons in technique from the chipmunks.

Put some pork rind out just for fun - didn't expect a Black Capped Chickadee to be the first to try it. Just a little slice of Backyard Bird life!

"Birding by Ear" in heavy cover - how many birds just call the classic "tweet tweet chirp chirp". These are considered generic cartoon-like characterizations of birds voices, but sometimes birds sound just like that.

Appalachian Cottontail Rabbit is blind in its right eye. One of three young siblings - I have watched it survive and thrive by adapting its behavior to compensate for total lack of vision on its right side.

The White Peacock Butterfly (Anartia jatrophae) is a striking tropical butterfly found in Florida and Texas and sometime further north.
