Eleven pill bugs pillaging

 

 

 

 



Ten fritillaries a-feeding

 

 

 

 



 Nine gulls a-diving (dumpster diving that is)

 

 

 

 



Eight mantids a-milking

 

 

 

 



Seven caterpillars a-crawling

 

 

 

 

 



Six ladybugs a-laying

 

 



Five phorid (fly) wings

 

 

 

 



Four calling crows

 

 

 

 



Three French hummingbirds

 

 

 

 



Two turtle fox squirrels

 

 

 

 



 And an oak gall in an oak tree!

 

 

 

 

 



 

Wishing you a happy holiday season!
