So it has been fairly quiet around here this week with the Santa Ana's blowing, fires to the north, and everything is very dry. Was out in our local mountains and saw something moving on the hillside so I climbed up to see exactly what it was. Was pretty surprised when an American Badger poked its head up and looked at me. Wish I had a slightly shorter lens on at the time but really wasn't expecting to see either a badger or anything that close, lol. Very accommodating and I got to spend the next hour or so observing from a bit further away.

Kinda slow around here lately so a kinda wild creature from late last fall, in Southern Ontario. That's a Japanese Maple in the background. It's leaves are about the last to fall. Love it's colors.

Not too much to snap around here at the moment, so I decided to do an informal portrait of one of the neighbours: Richardson's ground squirrel (known around here erroneously as a gopher) playing peek-a-boo with me this morning.
The shot is really interesting! It's looking like the squirrel is trying to play hide & seek!
