Someone was a bit worn out!!! Caught this on the way home yesterday... there is a horse ranch behind my house... anytime you see a horse laying down, it catches your eye, but this was funny!

Default Robin

Thanks everyone for the compliments!
The young sheep are neat.

I have to say the robin photo reminded me of a passage from Tom Brown's, ? "Vision Quest". Where his mentor is in rapt attention to something the students could not see. As 'Father" was almost supernatural in his powers and the students couldn't see what he was looking at they figured it must be something absolutely worthy of his undivided attention. Later they asked, "what was it that you were looking at?" he answered, "A robin". " But Father it was just a robin". Father responded, "Yes, but it was a robin like no other".

This always stuck with me and I try to find the uniqueness in each photographic subject.

The raccoon has a name, Nooccar. I raised him from a pup after a cat nursed him and a sibling. Nooccar would search through the leaves and we would toss leaves on top of him as he would come out I'd get some shots.

It is always a question as to how some wildlfe shots were obtained and I don't want to be misleading.

Default Fast food

This fox had a den with 6 pups along the river near my home. Watched her hunt for a while and then dig up a body. Thought it was a groundhog until I looked at the photo and it then appeared as an oppossum. No critter likes possum, but to each his own. Another thing that popped out when I saw the photo, was the wide eyed mouring dove sitting there watching the fox go by watching her. Wonder what the fox was thinking.
