bagYesterday after it stopped raining we went for a walk in the Bird Sanctuary. Along the road we saw this hole that looked like fresh badger diggings.
Whenever we see something like this we tell Molly to “smell that hole”. If it’s a fresh one, she’ll really check it out. If it’s an old one, she’ll just walk on by. This one got her interested and she really gave it a good sniffing.
So I figure something must be in there and I’d better take a picture of it. I get my camera all set, flash on and hold it down by the hole. All of a sudden I hear this growly, hissing sound, scaring the crap out of me and here’s my blurry picture.
Yup, it snapped the picture as I was jumping out of the way. Darned badger.
We continue on our walk and decide to try again on our way back. Or I should say, Jim’s going to try again. No way was I going to get near that hissing badger. Camera’s ready, Molly and I are on the other side of the road and Jim’s takes this picture. Now, all you can see is dirt. The badger kept digging into the side of the road and filled in the hole.
We had an extra special treat last night. Little Mama Doe came by to show off her little fawn. So adorable seeing this tiny little deer so close. Besides the pictures that I took through 3 panes of glass, the trail cam got some nice pictures too. It made my day!
