Animal Shenanigans: Slug’s Lunch

IMG_0172
Today in weird things that normal people don’t notice but I totally do: Linz has a lot of slugs hanging around. Well, not really hanging around as much as oozing their way around in the parks, hunting for delectable patches of veg to nosh on. It’s slow living to the max here for Linz’s slug population, so today I bring you a slug, savoring her lunch in slow-motion:

This is just a little reminder to all of us that like a slug, we should all slow down and savor life a little bit more.

We spotted this chubby-looking hen one rainy day along the trail. But she’s holding a fluffy surprise under those warm feathers.

“It’s bad outside, guys. Good thing it’s still nice and warm in here.”

Mom: “You’re welcome, little chickies.”

Sometimes being mom is a thankless job.

P.S. Here it is animated as a gif, because I could!
