This attractively dressed Eastern cottontail found a good resting place under the haskap bush in our front yard. Faye captured this most excellent portrait.
Now I understand.
Now I understand why the bird feeder empties so quickly. Chucky Chipmunks’ cheeks are chock full.
This rabbit felt comfortable enough to lay down in the yard.
I happened to look out the laundry room window at the right time to see this chipmunk at the edge of the deck, finishing a meal of sunflower seeds. This appears to be a bit out of focus because I shot it through the screened laundry room window.
We’re happy to share space and resources with it. Before letting the dogs out we go out ourselves first and walk around, wave our arms and speak up, thereby giving it the opportunity to skitter for cover.
After reviewing CCTV footage for evidence of the unauthorized visitor, I identified it. This fox followed a path I had shovelled out then turned, bounding along my footpath to avoid walking in the deeper untouched snow. At this point it stopped to scan the area ahead before proceeding.
A coyote cris-crossed my workplace after a recent snowfall.
While walking an untravelled road one morning I looked down and saw that two deer walked this road a few hours earlier. Quite near this spot and not long ago I saw a doe and two fawns, so I suspect that all three were present.
This Praying Mantis caught my eye as I made my rounds.
I came across large paw prints in the recent snowfall during my afternoon walk at work. I placed a coin next to the prints. The coin is 1 1/16 inches or 27mm in diameter. The pay prints are about 2x that size, so 2 1/4 inches or 54mm. I’m pretty sure a coyote left these prints.
It seems that WordPress does not like the photo I took; I cannot upload it.
