Animal Pictures

The Telegraph (UK) posted its animal pictures of the week (there are 31 photos), and this one of the deer at the drive-thru liquor store is the first. These deer must be underage...

This one is my other favorite picture from this week's collection:

It's a landmine-sniffing rat in Mozambique. I blogged about these rats in 2007.

On the home front, we have a nesting birdie (who my daughter named Penny) in our awning.

We got to watch her building her nest. She'd bring stuff to build it with, and then she sort of flattened herself on it and wiggled before she flew off to get some more.

Now she seems to be staying put, so there are probably some eggs. When the nesting started, there was this red-chested guy hanging around the place, but he's made himself scarce since he obviously got the job done already.

I'll keep you posted when there's more Penny news to report...

Awwww...I love these!

Btw, Skye, you happened to motivate me to post another video on my blog! A "Star Trek" one no less! Has nothing to do with animals, though.

Oh well...
