Finally got around to pulling my backyard camera card awhile back and had these visitors back by my targets back in late February.

I finally got a good colony of Purple Martins this spring/summer and have been enjoying them in the AM before it gets too hot.

This AM was the same except a large pod of dolphins was hanging around blowing up after mullet every so often. I saw one getting ready to get after one and got a decent capture of a 150# or so flipper getting breakfast right in my bayou backyard.

Okay - Did a trick to make Youtube post the video as regular instead of the "Short" but the processor here or feeding it doesn't like it so you have to click watch on youtube... unless it's coming thu on others browsers...

FYI fire ants SUCK!!! I was helping my son clear some bushes and I got into a fire ant hill. I was stupidly wearing crocs and got about 20 bites on one foot.
Man I have been bit or stung or whatever it is called this one is the worst I have ever had.
I look for those little bastards every time I cut the grass. Any mound gets nukes that day. Haven’t been hit by one yet, hopefully it’ll stay that way.

Not close enough.
Get a tarp or something similar, hold it in front of you so he can’t make you out. Drop it over the trap, grab the handle. Walk it too where there’s a water source or put it in the truck bed and carefully drive it too the water source. Drop and wait for the bubbles too quit. Then wait 5 minutes more 😂

Tarp or not, that thing wasn't going in the back of my Jeep. :oops:

It's been handled. ☠️
 
I was returning from my daily bicycle ride yesterday afternoon and was 100 yards from the driveway when I saw I coyote trotting along my wood line heading towards the road. Darn thing hit the road about 3 feet ahead of me and I touched the brakes, the front brake squealed and that's the first he saw me. It was comical how it damn near turned itself inside out turning around.
