Wildlife at Lake Fayetteville

The weather has taken a turn for the warmer, so I took advantage of it and went for a stroll at Lake Fayetteville. Usually I see NO wildlife and a couple of birds. Today was different!

I was walking along, daydreaming and enjoying the solitude when I heard rustling. I mean a LOT of rustling. So I figured, even I, (who rarely can find any half-way concealed critters) could see this one. I mean, it was a lot of noise. So I looked and looked. In the trees, around the bushes and I wasn't finding anything. The noise got louder so I looked across the path and then I saw the armadillo! He was standing right next to me! It waited for me to dig in my pocket, grab my cell phone, turn it on, get the camera part working and take the shot. Very patient I must say! I think this was my first armadillo here at the lake.

Then, just a quarter of a mile further....ANOTHER one!

Well, it was just a critter bonanza! I sure enjoyed seeing them.

You came upon an Armadillo convention! Or - maybe they were getting ready for an Armadillo New Year. Anyway - Happy 2011 to you!
