This little guy greeted me this morning near the wood pile. I shot my camera through the kitchen window, so it's a little fuzzy. He looks like he's rolling up a snowball! They sure are cute, but they also will wreak havoc if they find a way inside. They're like a raccoon in that they will open anything that has food in it. My kitchen was a disaster one spring after being gone all winter. The little guy had broken everything that was glass, knocked over books from bookshelves, scattered empty food containers, and left his "markings" all over the place! I have since plugged up all potential holes he might have gotten into and have had a martin-free cabin for the past couple of years. I like that he's around if he stays in his own home -- outside!

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.

even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
