We always see a great assortment of critters while camping, and this year was no exception.
The mini frogs are favourites of ours. They crawl all over the trails out there and the road through the campground. You have to watch your step! These are the first critters Bushboy looks for every year.
If you time it right, there are multitudes of butterflies out there. This year was wonderful, lots of variety. Love these ones that land on the grass and dirt, but also love the white butterflies that fly up in the evergreen trees in the heat of the afternoon.
This was the first year the campground seems to have picked up a resident falcon. It sat in the trees above the campsites most days, calling its eerie cries. Like a small animal in distress, or an emergency whistle being blown over and over again.
The squirrels are Chika’s favourite critters! I love how they scold anyone who gets too close to ‘their’ trees. They run through the campsite pretty frequently.
We discovered this critter about four years ago, and eagerly search for it every year now. It only comes out at night. Red Western Frog, a nocturnal and friendly critter. This is a medium sized one, they can get much larger.
Critters make being outdoors so much fun!
