An Unusual Visitor

26 Jun

When I was walking in pasture after the storms, I came across an unlikely little visitor in the pasture.


I’ve not seen a crawdad back there before (although my son says he found one once).  Hope he finds a more steady water source because he’s sitting on what should be a dry goat path.

Sharing with Camera Critters, Saturday’s Critters and SOOC Sunday.

    Ya, he could definitely be in trouble when (if?) your weather dries out! That would be a bit of a surprise to find one!

      I was certainly not expecting to see anything like that.

    Neat guest! Haven’t seen one before.

      He better find some real water, or he won’t last very long.

    we get ’em in the pasture here, too. seems like they’re easy pickings for herons and egrets and crows, then.

      Oh no. Poor guy. I can see why you’d get them with the pond. I don’t have anything like that here.

    Great find, but it seems like a weird place for a crawdad! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

      It really is. Hope he found some water.

    we have poisonous ones here in Fl now ugh

    • Teresa June 27, 2015 at 10:06 pm #

      We don’t have any poisonous ones thankfully. He was just a bit out of his natural element.

    Every once in while, I see a water critter where I don’t expect any after heavy rains.

    Good luck to you, Mr. or Mrs. Crayfish/Crawdad/Mudbug/LOBSTER!

      Poor little critter is certainly going to need some luck.

    Hope he makes it safely to a watery refuge.

    • Teresa June 28, 2015 at 6:20 pm #

      Me too. Of course, it keeps raining, so my pasture is still a watery refuge.

    He must have floated in on the tide! That’s a lot of rain, hope things are drying out.

    • Teresa July 17, 2015 at 9:16 am #

      We’re still well above average for rain, but I’m optimistic that I’ll get my hay made this coming week.
