Goodies, Captured Critters & Politics

Sort of a quick diary entry of our day, with our usual adventures with photography.

Allergy shot today (only 28 more to go. LOL)

Afterward, we had a joyful visit to Barnes & Noble (a rare treat these days) and got some goodies.

Melissa bought me a pen-cup I loved, and we of course bought some books too. Tesla: The Life & Times of an Electric Messiah, Pocket Birds of North America, Speeches That Changed the World, The Total Outdoorsman (read: outdoorswoman–sexist bastards.) and a fabulous journal.

On the way home, we saw a fox with an injured paw. Followed it, got some video and some stills.

Melissa called Game and Fish to see if someone could come capture the poor thing and maybe nurse him or her back to health.

Just before we turned into the driveway, we saw a turkey vulture feeding on an armadillo carcass. eek. I’ll spare you the picture of that one.

We had dinner and started watching a video (Senate committee “question and hear testimony from the Honorable Sally Yates, Former Acting Attorney General and the Honorable James Clapper, Former Director of National Intelligence on Russian Interference in our elections”–which I strongly advise any concerned American to watch! It’s at the end of this post).

We paused.

Rustling noises in the wooded lot next door. Hackles up on Poppet at the window, and Noodle growling. We go outside with our headlamps and cameras to see what little critter is in the woods. At first i thought it was a possum, but it was an armadillo.

Night photography without that set up is challenging, but i managed to photoshop enough to see some of the shots.

Just thought it was cool. Enjoy.
