Quails & Masks

The porcupine is still alive and kicking, its tracks are in the usual spots on the land. It picked a new pine tree to spend the night feeding in this Winter, very much in the same area as last year’s. Definitely a creature of habit, it’s been living in the same house, following the same habits for as long as we started paying attention 5 years ago.

We set the trail cam at the entrance of the collapsed barn where it lives.


The poor fellow wasn’t expecting my deep track on its usual path and stumbled into it 🙂


5 minutes later… Really cool animals.

Deer at rest

We woke up this morning and noticed a deer in the forest. It was resting. I realized I never had the chance to observe a resting deer, so we did for a good while.
