Camera Critter Meme #33

For many Americans, this week means turkey, yams, stuffing and other traditional Thanksgiving food. And on the high desert, it's no different.

However, for a lot of the residence of the high desert, Thanksgiving comes to late in the year for them. But that doesn't mean they don't enjoy a good meal.

During my travels around the high desert, I have been come across a few critters during mealtime. To paraphrase a popular saying, "It's a critter eat critter world out there."

Western Meadowhawk

Tule Bluet

Robber Fly

Yellow-headed Blackbird (female...probably a nestling meal)
