Yeah, turns out there are animals to blog about here in the New World after all.
Of course I'm partial to farm animals—cows, chickens, sheep, and pigs especially, with the occasional amorous goat thrown in.
But needs must. (I have no idea what that phrase means but it seems to fit so many situations.) Anyway, we've had a proper blizzard here, which you may have heard about on the news. I say "proper" because back in Britain they think any old snowstorm is a blizzard, when of course that's not the case. We ended up on the light side of this one, with only 22 inches or so. It turns out that after the first twelve it's all the same, something I did not know, never having seen more than twelve inches despite living in Wisconsin for six years.
Anyway, the white blanket of snow makes it easier to spot the wild visitors, and no doubt they are bolder when their food sources are covered with 22 inches of snow. I managed to get quite a few shots of them (and I hate using the word "shot" in relation to an animal that too often meets that fate). In addition, we have a trail cam that picked up quite a few deer-in-the-headlights shots overnight. We also have fox-in-the-headlights shots, and a few dog-in-the-headlights.
But this is Friday Deer Blogging, not Friday Fox Blogging—maybe next week.
