Besides making sure that evil humans go to jail the best part of my job is doing calls for wildlife. I try to get pictures of most all of the wildlife as long as I have my camera handy.
All of the animals in these pictures were safely released/ rehabbed by licensed professionals.
Eastern box and RES. I had to pose them.

Copperhead male, so pretty

Canebreak or Timber rattlesnake technically. He's handsome huh?

Baby Great horned Owl, I love owls.

Eastern red bat, just cold stunned, I released him a bit later.

Brown bat. I had him in a carrier in a towel and somehow he got out and stuck to the door of my truck. No idea how he did that without hurting himself.

The kestrel a week later and now look! I swear you can watch them grow.

What a great assortment of critters! Each is beautiful...not sure who I'd want to take home with me. lol. I love birds of prey, they are just so awesome and Pelicans are just funny looking. I have a great appreciation of bats now that my kid studies them but have a soft spot for a reptile of any sort.
Thanks for sharing and keep them coming!
