Dragonfly Alert!

What an interesting visitor I had in my garden near our pool!  This is a Common Whitetail Dragonfly.

Mom caught this shot of him resting quietly, hanging from a plant leaf.  I did some research, and found that the males like to "perch" or rest on objects near water.  They do this so they can patrol their territory, and drive away other male dragonflies!

Maybe he should just stop fighting with other dragonflies and come inside and play with me?   What do you think?

Black and White Ruffed Lemur, and an Imposter?

And now for one more new animal friend who lives at the Dallas Zoo that looks especially floofy and soft!

 It is the Black and White Ruffed Lemur.  In the wild, he lives in Madagascar, off the east coast of Africa.

 
 He is very playful likes to climb up high and swing down to the ground on branches of bamboo just for fun!

 
JB:  Hey, wait a minute, STOP THE PRESSES!  How did this picture of my sister, Charli, get into my Big World blog??
 Charli:  JB, I can be a Black and White Ruffed Lemur too!  I am playful and fun, and I like to climb up to high places too!
 JB:  Charli, go back to my Small World.  You are introoding here and you are an IMPOSTER!
