Vertebrate Animals!

To be completely honest, this was a very tough assignment to fulfill. I thought it would be relatively easy to find and take photos of 5 different vertebrate animals. I was wrong. This assignment actually took me multiple nature walks to complete! The first time around, I couldn't find any animals, so I tried again the next day. Unfortunately, I didn't have time during the day, so by the time I went out and walked around, the sun was already beginning to set. I brought with me bread this time because I thought maybe it'd be easy to attract birds or squirrels close enough to me to snap a picture. This did not work, and I looked a little crazy throwing bread at trees to try and tempt some birds to come fly down to me. I also saw a whole family of raccoons, a smattering of squirrels and a handful of rabbits, but unfortunately, I didn't get the chance to snap a photo of any of them. So ultimately, I went back to the reservoir and managed to get photos of 5 different vertebrates. It was sunny, but cold and windy. Enjoy.
