Fisher in the Log

Fisher cat in Log from Peter Abdu on Vimeo.

I was expecting some activity further down the log (which I did get later on), and thus had directed my lighting to this area. This Fisher decided to change it up and I got a few shots of him zipping around and into the log but Would have liked to focused the light on the log opening next time.

Woodchucked out

      I was hoping for a fox in this den but I'm quickly finding out just how many woodchucks have "taken over" the local area. Red fox often inhabit old woodchuck dens on slopes, which provide good drainage. The fox often enlarge the opening of the hole to get a quick start if they need one. The red fox dens I have found in the past usually have a strong skunk smell-something this den was missing-but I hope to have some fox pictures in the next week with my efforts directed at new potential fox dens nearby.

Toad Close Up

Took this photo today and couldn't help but enjoy the eyes on this toad. Even something as simple as a toad can be interesting if viewed through the right perspective (Click on the picture to enlarge).
