This is just some of the wildlife we see here from time to time. I'll let you know what they are in just a bit, but first, I want to apologize for not posting for a while. My mother in law is in the hospital and I'm scrambling trying to juggle a bunch of stuff that needs to be done. I'm also working on the commissions I have and want to get them done as quickly as possible but still do the absolute best job I can.
Ok, what do we have here? (You can click on the first one for a larger view, the second one has been cropped from the original photo and is about as big as it can be.)
Still can't tell what it is? It's a good-sized rabbit that hides under the barn shed. It's very hard to see but it's there almost every time I go to the barn. The water faucet for my horse's tank is located in this shed so I see it nearly every day. It has let me take many photos of it but none of them turn out very well because it's so very well hidden.
And many of you still won't be able to tell what this is either. I took the photo from the barn which is quite a ways from where this animal was hunting for something in the grass. It's times like this that I'd really, really like to have a great camera! Oh, it's an adult gray fox - do you suppose that rabbit was hiding from him?
