I'm a vet tech, a wildlife rehabber, and an insect enthusiast (not necessarily in that order).

Insectra comments on Feb 17, 2018:
Nice! I got hooked on cribbage when I lived in Maine. I have a cribbage board with a carrying case that I used to take everywhere with me. It's much harder to find people that play in PA.

I didn't think to ask when I posted my rattlesnake pics. I figured the nature of the group precluded having to ask. I'd love to see snake pics!

Do you have alpacas of your own?
You guys are all so talented! I'm a little embarrassed to show my work, but here it is anyway lol....
Insectra comments on Feb 17, 2018:
Don't be embarrassed! Your work looks great! I know that feeling of trepidation when you first post something and you're not sure how others are going to react. Especially if it's something you've worked hard on and are proud of. But, in my limited experience, everyone here has been really supportive and wonderful. It's been really fun to share and see what others are sharing.

So I treated myself to art supplies with my tax money. This is my first painting in like a year.
Insectra comments on Feb 17, 2018:
I like the detail in the snow on the trees. I bought some cheap watercolors this summer, planning to try my hand at painting. They're still sitting, unopened, in my craft drawer.

Insectra comments on Feb 14, 2018:
@RavenCT, in July I was given a duckling with a deformed bill. She ended up bonding with one of my cattle dogs. Squill (dog) and Jimmy(duck) were inseparable until Jimmy got old enough to realize she was a duck and moved to the barnyard with the other ducks.

I didn't start getting the old lady jokes until I started raising African violets.
I'm joining for my love of migratory waterfowl!
Insectra comments on Feb 14, 2018:
How exciting! I love winter/spring migration here in Pennsylvania. The ducks are amazing but (as common as they are) I love the snow geese and tundra swans.
