Saturday Critters

All photos taken in Coal County, OK.

This fine looking Paint Horse found some tasty weeds on the other side of the fence. Hope he didn't scratch his neck on the barbs.

It came a gully washer last Wednesday. On the way to town we saw this turtle on the far side of the road.  

The first katydid I've seen this summer.

Love this critter. This is Gus. He loves riding in the truck, but hates storms. We are having another gully washer this morning. He's hiding under the table.

  2. Hello, great critters. I love the horse and Gus! Neat shots of the turtle and katydid. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. I appreciate your visit and comment too. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  3. The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence! Great photo!
    Very good photos of your other critters, too!
    Rain here (north Mississippi) this morning, too

  4. Beautiful creatures on your blog Lea.

  5. Oh horses--don't they just love to get to the grass on the other side of the fence. We are having rain here too only not quite a gully washer

  6. Hi Betty,
    Beautiful pictures show you, the last photo of the dog in the car is really great.
    Best regards, Irma

  7. Hi Betty.
    That's a great selection. Sorry to hear about all the rain .. hope the sun shines on you all very soon.

    Thanks for looking in on my blog.

  8. I am not sure what species the turtle is but it looks pretty interesting. Do you know perchance?

    1. This is a new turtle for me. I've only seen them since moving to Oklahoma. I believe it is a three-toed box turtle, but not certain.

  9. oh boy, that turtle is awesome...and the horse, what a beauty!!

    it is always fun to see a pooch with his head out the window, enjoying the breeze!!

    beautiful critters this week!!

  10. Gus is one cute dog. I hope the storm passed quickly, it's sad to see a dog frightened.

  11. Love the horse! Gus has a great smile!

  12. Hello,
    Gus, the master of the truck, is very cute!

  13. Your critters are all so beautiful! Absolutely love the horse wading through the high grass, snacking! :-)
