One cool thing the rain brought was a few little ducks who decided to take up residence for a while in a puddle close to the house. It was fun to watch them through the window. Hmm.... sometimes I wish I was more like the ducks and loved the rain as much as they do.
We also had another visitor over the weekend. He or she has been here for as long as we have and so far has never bothered our livestock... Lets hope that continues as I would hate to have to not have him around. We love watching this guy hunt. His huge leaps and pounces are huge sources of amusement. Usually due to his shyness we only get glimpses of him and that most often with the binoculars. Obviously however, he was being braver yesterday and decided to do some hunting close to the house. He played peekaboo with us quite a bit but Mountain Man was finally able to capture a few pictures.
Then finally, he was successful and trotted off with his catch. We have many rodents around here and really appreciate his efforts to keep the population in check.
You can see his coat is still shedding out and is pretty shaggy right now. Hope he comes back for more rodent dinners soon!
