These are acorn woodpeckers. They are preparing a "granary" to store acorns to eat in the months ahead. The one on the right has pecked out a hole and is holding an acorn to put in it.

They are amazing creatures who spend late summer/fall gathering acorns so they can eat them all winter. They store the acorns in holes the make is trees. This is a tree near the 7th tee on The Villages Golf course.

Part of the almost daily gathering of buzzards (turkey vultures) on the light standards near The Villages tennis courts. I like this picture because you can see the front of one bird and the back of the other.

Bullfrogs often sit on the shore to hunt and sun themselves. But they normally head for the water when people approach. This one just sat there singing "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah."

I think this is a Coopers Hawk that spent a long time in the tree being our neighbor's house this evening. The color is flattened here because there was little direct light.

A bobcat that wandered past about 5:10 this afternoon. She was very unhappy that I stood up to take pictures and moved down the hill toward the perimeter fence.

I would not typically bother iNaturalist with something as mundane as a bullfrog. But the skin on this creature looks kind of odd so I thought it might be worth sharing.

This frog was in the background of picture I shot. It is a pretty extreme blowup which is why it looks kind of odd. It was taken in the largest pond on The Villages Golf Course.

I did not realize when I took it that this frog had a white skin. I am trying to find out how unusual this is.

This is male California Quail that had been standing on the big rock behind our house. He often comes with his mate and stand guard on this rock while she feeds. If this picture they have become separated and he is calling out to her. When she responded he took off like a rocket.
