Paws 'n' Claws

The place for pets, and their owners

New photos from the marsh (claws no paws)


Well, kind of new. But I figure it’s time to take them out of e-mail and onto the blog in honor of Teri’s birthday, which is today, since she took the pictures down South. First, happy birthday Teri! Second, a wood stork. As Teri says, “A wood stork somehow caught a large fish yesterday. You can see that it was too big to swallow but the stork was determined not to let it’s prize go. I think the stork must have finally abandoned
it because there were a group of vultures over there this morning.”IMG_2131IMG_2127IMG_2128

And third, a gator, giving a big yawn (I hope) in the sun. Personally, I think Spike’s yawn is way cuter!IMG_2141IMG_2145

And lastly, (and this is new!) Teri writes about this picture, “I’ve not seen this before. Ibis gathering in the shade.”IMG_2149

About this blog
For most animal lovers, pets are members of the family. They carry around pictures in their wallets and schedule vacations with pets in mind. This blog takes a look into the world of a pet owner: the good, the bad and the just plain obsessive.
