Our Surprise Visitor
You can imagine our surprise this morning when the fellow who had been leaving his tracks all over our yard this winter finally made an appearance!
First he snuck around the corner of the shed. Then he was brave enough to venture to the front of it where he sat for a good long time while I shot many, many photos of him.
Next he disappeared behind the shed, only to come out in the woods next to the old outhouse.
Again, I proceeded to shoot many photos of him.
You can tell, too, that he knew I was photographing him again.
It was interesting watching his stealth movements.
There were times when he would raise his body to a pouncing position like he was ready to attack, and then curl himself into a tight ball as if he was going to settle in for a nice little nap.
Mr. Lynx sat between our two sheds looking longingly toward my MIL’s cottage like he wanted so badly to go visiting there also. This is his usual path according to the previous tracks he’s left.
However, with me watching from the window, he decided instead to make one last trip to the wood shed and then he disappeared around the corner.
Now if I can only get a picture of that flighty red fox
that keep running through the yard……
