|Congratulations to the winner of the 2023 Urban Wildlife Guide Creature of the Year Award, the common buckeye butterfly! This false-eye-flashing beauty was featured in October's "Buckeye Butterflies" blog. Click on this sentence to revisit that blog. Take a bow, tricky butterfly! Click on the photo to enlarge.
|In the event that buckeye butterfly is unable to fulfill the duties of creature-of-the-year, the first runner up, juicy delicious New Jersey peaches, will step in. This is the first time in the history of the contest that a fruit has been chosen (or should we say picked?). Click here to visit the peach blog.
|In closing, we wish to honor the 2023 passing of Chase T. Cat. She was among the best of tabbies. We miss her.
