Creatures around here are a little camera shy. You’d think they were movie stars hiding from paparazzi. As soon as they discover I’m pointing a camera their direction, they do their best to disappear.
The neighbor’s cat was out hunting when I tried to take her picture.
If she was green she would have blended right in.
Several pairs of mallard ducks have been spending time along the river.
As soon as they saw me watching
they moved into the brush along the bank.
I couldn’t figure out what this was.
Stump? Pile of dead leaves?
Then it moved. Rock chuck a.k.a. groundhog. He saw me taking pictures…
and headed for his house in a heap of construction debris.
The hooded mergansers farther down the river didn’t even try to hide.
They hauled themselves across the water…
and flat out left.
This one is a little tricky. Do you see anything here?
How about now?
Now you see him.
Now you don’t.
