The Daily Bucket is a regular feature of the Backyard Science group.  It is a place to note any observations you have made of the world around you.  Snails, fish, insects, weather, meteorites, climate, birds and/or flowers.  All are worthy additions to the bucket.  Please let us know what is going on around you in a comment.  Include, as close as is comfortable for you, where you are located.

A recent rainy summer day on the island, driving down the road....

Do you find strange companions on your drive to work too? This is not an uncommon sight here. I like it.

P.S. That's a llama. Sheep farmers like to keep a llama with their flock to deter predators, especially nocturnal packs of dogs. The sheep dog is doing the work here, we can't see him, behind the flock. The farmer is in the truck, keeping out of the rain.

A late Bucket today. But drop your observations of the day (or yesterday!) in it below...
