52 Snapshots of Life; Week 41: Animal

I set out today to take some photos of an animal OTHER than a dog or cat for this week's 52 Snapshots challenge; topic: ANIMAL

The only "animal" I found on my walk was a FISH:

There was a really large banjo catfish nearby, but he skee-daddled when I moved :(
So, I got this kivver instead.


"But wait," I thought, "That's not exactly an ANIMAL."

No squirrels in sight?  Not a one.  No skunks, possum, deer or bunnies, either.

Then, I got a little help from a rather unlikely source.  

I decided to stop at the cemetery to visit G's grave, where I had recently put mums and pumpkins.  I wanted to see how they were doing after last night's monsoon rain.

The mums are great. 

The pumpkins?  Not so much!  An ANIMAL apparently had decided to make breakfast, lunch and dinner of them!

And that, is how, I got a slightly different idea for the topic: ANIMAL.

The mums look great, but here's all that's left of three pumpkins

































Pumpkin seeds!

Expanded view:  ANIMAL with TEETH!

Looks like the ANIMAL had a PARTY!

Special thanks to my beloved, G for leading me to the ANIMAL; and to our blog hop hosts at The Lazy Pit Bull.

  1. Whoa! You’re lucky you didn’t run into that animal altho it likely was a vegetarian.

    1. I know!! I was speculating on what it could be.... maybe a woodchuck (groundhog)? Bear? Beaver? (no water nearby that I'm aware of).
      I'm leaning towards the woodchuck/groundhog. :)

  2. That was nice of G to help you out with your animal shot. And somebody was happy that you helped them to a feast!

    1. I went there again yesterday, and the other graves have intact pumpkins on them!! His is the only site that is right at the woods, though. The others are out in the open, so maybe the "bear" is afraid to be seen out in the open. So weird!!
