Sorry to post so much today. It's just been an awesome day and I've wanted to share it with you.

Going through photos tonight. Looking forward to warmer weather although spring seems so far away right now! We came across this guy two summers ago when we took a walk in the orchard. #porcupine #critters #wishwecouldkeephim #dreamingofsummer #idahowildlife

This is actually up on the dry farm, not my garden, but I wish you could see the size of this gopher.
I was also surprised that it didn't run from us.  When we saw this guy (gal?) the head was down in the ground and the bum was sticking out.  The Farmer gently touched his bum with his shoe expecting him to run down the hole, but instead he came out, turned around and just looked at us.  Very strange.
All the kids got to come over and get a really close look at him, before he eventually turned around and started digging again.  It's not often you get to see a gopher close-up, so we snapped a shot.

Two different types of hummingbirds visiting this week ♡ #chiquelixo #hummingbird #boisegreenbelt #boise #idaho #7summer #summer #idahowildlife #bird

Saw this little guy stash himself away after falling out of his nest, went into investigate and nearly stepped on him, I guess they have some sort of instict to remain motionless? Hope he made it through the night.

An easy way to tell whether or not you are looking at a chipmunk is to look at the face. Chipmunks always have stripes on their faces as well as their bodies. Ground squirrels do not. Like the critter on the right, their faces are plain even if there are stripes on the sides of their bodies.

Yellow-pine Chipmunk on the left; Golden-mantled Ground Squirrel on the right. This chipmunk is mostly found in the Northwestern US and this squirrel species is scattered across the Western US. They often occur in the same habitat. The top two photos were taken within feet of each other.

The American bittern is a master of camouflage, so we were thrilled to follow
the distinct clacking sound this member of the heron family makes and discovered this bird in hunting mode. These carnivores are stealth hunters and their subtle movements are barely perceptible. #americanbittern #bittern #botaurslentiginosus #birdphotography #bird #shorebird #shorebirds #birdsofInstagram#naturephotography #birder #jeffandwendyphotography #wild #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nature #www.jeffandwendyphotography.com #igsc_wildlife #bestnatureshot #wildlife_vision #wildlife_perfection #idahowildlife

A close-up of the rattlesnake I saw earlier today. Yes, this shot was taken with a zoom lens. I may not be pathologically afraid of rattlers but I am not an idiot.
An Internet search revealed that this snake can deliver large amounts of venom in a bite. However, most bites happen when a snake is handled or harassed. Watch where you walk, listen for the warning rattles, and do not disturb any rattlesnakes you encounter.

The Prairie Rattlesnake is Idaho's only rattler. Quite the change from Arizona where 13 of the known 36 species of rattlesnakes can be found, including the Prairie.
