UNBELIEVABLE!! Another Royal!

use this The mouse King_

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? I wasn’t even  making an effort and I found another Royal. THIS time I was able to get a name, may I introduce King Teddy! He seems mild of manner and intelligent, but that remains to be seen. You should never decide who someone is on meeting them for the first time.

I asked King Teddy if he knew the name of the Squirrel King and he told me the squirrel in question is King Lear, King of the Squirrels. How UNBELIEVABLE!

 

So this happened. TURKEY TROUBLE!

Things were going so well and then suddenly they weren’t in TurkeyLand,

Every morning the turkeys come marching through the woods and cross our property headed North. Most of the time it’s a peaceful, many times entertaining event.

This morning for some reason things were tense and hopefully one of you turkey experts out there can tell me what was going on. 

The second half of this video makes me think of when giraffes fight with each other, wrapping their necks around each other. If you can help me solve the mystery, please do.

The clarity of this video is terrible, my apologies. I haven’t replaced my tripod yet and holding a heavy camera and long lens is definitely not ideal.

 

Ah love,so fickle,so fleeting.

 

From the moment this squirrel found the birdseed, you could tell it was LOVE. You can even see the squirrel kissing the bird feeder, such a romantic.

Being in love and winning over the one you love isn’t always possible. This squirrel tried and tried to get some acknowledgement from the birdseed but it wouldn’t even throw it a crumb.

Eventually, things deteriorated as these things do. The love the squirrel had for the seed diminished through frustration and all that was left was some half-hearted screaming.

FOX!!!

It's a fox doing fox stuff wm

I was looking out the window into the woods, contemplating my latest strategy for outsmarting the chipmunks that steal the birdseed, when what should I see?

A FOX!!!

Following the scent wm

The fox trotted along in no particular hurry and that gave me enough time to grab my camera. Remember I said I grabbed my camera, not that I took things slowly enough for the pictures to be in focus when I took them.

The Fox Tail wm

I like this shot because the shape of the tail is exactly what you see in images or drawings of the perfect roundness at the top.

I continually marvel at the wonders of the woods.
