Fox Incognito

This red fox was hiding close to a chipmunk burrow waiting for his chance.  Camouflaged in the terrain, it wasn’t long before the chipmunk with it’s terrible vision unknowingly darted within striking distance of the fox.  Using the great force of his hind legs the fox leaped, landing on top of his targeted prey.

Thank goodness I did not witness that! I do know this. We had chipmunks around here before this guy showed up. Now we have this guy, no chipmunks (mice either, which is a good thing).


How beautiful is this wild creature? He’ll live for 2 to 3 years. He eats about 2 pounds a day.  A chipmunk weighs a third of a pound. That means he’ll eat about the equivalent of six chipmunks a day.  In addition to chipmunks and mice they also eat birds, worms, berries, eggs and any scavenged food they can find.


Doe a Deer

Did you know? Deer are not able to focus on one location with both eyes which means the deer has very poor depth perception.  Next time you’re on the highway think of all those deer crossing at the absolute wrong time and stop wondering what would possess them to cross at that precise moment. 

It isn’t easy being green.

For a long time I had a tendency to always shoot photos from “my” eye level.  Classic mistake.  This little guy showed me the value of looking beyond your own horizon.  At my feet, while I was focused on shooting yet another sunset, this little guy was posing patiently on the end of a branch.

I only saw him because I dropped my lens cap beside him.  He is only about 2 inches long.  I had to get up close.  He still didn’t move.  His expression says it all.   Will you take the picture already.
