While building Nevin, I'd be out at 7am as the sun rose. I saw a fox or number of fox come trotting down the new path. They seemed to appreciate the ability to move more freely in the woods. I only have one problem with the fox, one unanswered question.

Hopefully this video explains it better for everyone with the same question.

A herd of armadillos. Lightly skipped a disc under one and it jumped about 3 feet off the ground lol. Also on hole 1 today I was putting about 50 ft away from 3 deer. They just stood there and watched for about ten minutes.

Saw a fledgling Meadowlark at Eagle Ridge in Oswego, IL on Saturday. Really pretty bird.

Played Stafford Lake County Park DGC yesterday for the first time. After 6 holes of getting rained on, the sun peaked out and we 12 holes of beautiful Northern CA weather.

Saw two of these guys on hole 14 or 15:

Always steer well clear of these guys when I see them out on the course (or on my lawn)



We call them cow killer ants here in Georgia but they are really a form of wasp.

You can step on one of these things (with shoes on of course) and as long as the ground is not pavement or solid like a rock they are very tough and will spring back almost instantly. I've heard that they are really painful if they sting you.

Always solitary insects, be mindful when picking up your tee shots in the south.

Indeed. You can take a stick, hold them down and they will squeak/hiss. I've never been stung by one, but know someone who has. That person said it was like getting poked w/ a red hot needle.

I was watching a cow killer ant crossing a fairway at Stoney Hill when, as it passed a broadleaf weed, a black widow pounced from underneath and ambushed it. Monster wars, on a very small scale.

Allegedly, the reason they're called "cow killer ants" is not that they kill cows, but that the pain is so bad that it "hurts enough to kill a cow".

Had a red corn snake shake its tail at me yesterday to imitate a rattler. Never saw a red snake before.

Had a small snake nearly slither into me it realized it then slithered and nearly ran into my friend before going away. Almost stepped on another black snake right after leaving a tee pad. Seen several deer on a college campus course just yesterday and lots of squirrels and bunnies and stuff.
