Flashback Monday, April 9, 2012 – This female American robin was watching as her male was running off some invading males from the couple’s territory. The light was fading and I was trying to get close enough for a picture so she was looking at me with a wary eye. It was too dim to get any great photos of the boys.
Wednesday, April 9, 2014 – Hubby said something funny about today’s photos when he saw them. The animals reminded him of the old fable about the tortoise and the hare, though instead of a hare we have a red kangaroo joey. He said I could call today’s post title, “Hurry Up and Wait!” This little baby red kangaroo wasn’t hopping around when we visited the Veteran’s rest home where my friend’s grandpa lives. This is a great rest home and they have a very large tortoise (that hibernates during the winter), birds, resident cats, visiting pet therapy dogs, and during the spring and summer a special therapy animal….a red kangaroo joey. This season’s joey is named Simon. When summer is over he will go live with his new owners out of state. The tortoise is named Turtle Man. Without further ado I share with you “The Tortoise and the Roo” 🙂
