… Cottontail that is!  This cute little Bunny was eating the fresh grass in the ditch along the road.


I Like Peanuts

Here’s one from the critter cam! A black morph Grey Squirrel! She is a daily visitor to our feeders where we always make sure that there’s some peanuts out for her. Three of her offspring also come over and it becomes quite entertaining watching them chase each other around the yard! Check out those claws! If you look close you can see our house reflected in her eyes!

Here’s a Grey Grey Squirrel.  We don’t see many of these guys anymore, as the Blacks are taking over the gene pool.  This guy is soaking wet with the rain, but it doesn’t seem to bother him much.  He has a good supply of seeds to keep his energy up!


Drink Up, Mrs. S.

Here’s a Critter for a change.

I got a new toy today, in the form of a Nikon P900. This is one of the first shots. So far, so good!


Grey Squirrel

Here’s a little critter who is quite at home in our yard. She’s been around for a few years now. Although she’s black, she’s a grey squirrel. There seems to be more black ones than grey. Here she’s on the bird bath having a drink.


Snowy Critter

Here’s one of our local Critters.  A regular visitor to our bird feeders year round.  Today it’s got itself all puffed up against the cold and it’s own snowflake collection!
