An Unexpected Visitor

This neighborhood resident came to visit me today. I wonder if he was planning to nibble on my butterfly bush? He arrived on the country lane, walking at a leisurely pace, however when our dog Maude told him in no uncertain terms to "take off Buddy!" the llama high-tailed it cross country, heading through the field behind the play house. I saw him back on the lane a couple of minutes later, heading up the long steep hill for his home on a nearby farm. What about you? Do you like unexpected visitors, or do you prefer that they call first? I'm fine with either as long as they don't eat all of my autumn blossoms!

I love surprise guests to my yard. It makes my day when the cardinals come calling, and the squirels run from one limb to another.

Aisling said...

Cardinals are special with their bright red coats and squirrels so busy all the time! They are all special when you think about so, like you, I love surprise guests! :)

Wow! What a fun and interesting visiter!

I, too, enjoy surprise animal guests.

Prairie Star,

Thanks for visiting! I wish you a wonderful day!

Aisling, I love the wildlife visiting. Now with Callie - they do not get very close to my house.
Your images are beautiful.

Ernestine, Thank you! My dog scares them off sometimes, but sometimes the wild creatures get really close to the house before she notices them (especially now that Maude is so old.) We've had some fun visitors over the years. Of course this llama isn't really wild, he's just the neighbor's "pet." :)
