I came home yesterday and found a few visitors. They return almost every year and set up residence for a bit whilst they do what rabbits do...it's always nice to see them.

One of our regular garden visitors, a red squirrel - and by chance I had my camera ready with "wildlife" lens attached :)

1. Carrying a delicious nut - and looking for a place to hide it

2. This is the right spot! Bury it here...

3. Push the grass back over it and it is stored for the future ;)

4. Just checking if it is really here...

I was wondering why it appears to have horns. Apparently *European* red squirrels are not the same as North American red squirrels, and can have these ear tufts.

More foxes. This is the beginning of a wonderful friendship. :)


Love your fox series. We're going to try to photograph them in the San Juan Is later this week. Supposedly the kits are emerging from the dens there.

While lying in wait for a different subject, a nearby ground squirrel started hopping around frantically then it came up from the dirt with a Botta's Pocket Gopher clenched firmly in its teeth. I watched about fifteen minutes of it insuring the gopher was firmly deceased, then a small taste test followed by it carrying the carcass into the squirrel's nearby burrow.
