:: An Insight into the Natural World :: Lets see the Wild Creatures that visit your backyard, front yard or just come onto your property (farm, etc.). Any type of vertebrate animal is okay, e.g. Fishes, Amphibians, Reptiles, Birds or Mammals. You may like to view this as an ad-hoc survey of the wild animals that you live with (sometimes unwittingly).
