I've decided to join the fun over at ABC Wednesday. And, conveniently, they're starting a fresh round at the beginning of the alphabet. I spotted this armadillo at sunset rooting along the side of State Road 64 a couple miles north of Sarasota. This was the first time I ever saw a live armadillo near a road. Odd looking creatures, aren't they? It didn't seem to mind me taking photos. In fact, it appeared ready for its close-up, rearing back and showing off those razor sharp claws made for digging. And my respect for those claws is why I kept my distance and used a long lens. Click here to see other contributions on ABC Wednesday.
