All the Critters

With the weather being off-the-charts beautiful, 78 degrees today, I found it very difficult to hang around the house; not even my alma mater whipping San Diego State in the NCAA tournament could keep me in front of the TV.   All the critters have emerged from their hiding places, or have returned from their journeys to warmer places.

I noticed this cantankerous snapping turtle plowing through the Beaver Habitat’s muddy shoreline.

It eventually noticed me taking pictures and burrowed into the mud.

The geese have returned.

The Mallards have also returned.

Even this Muskrat seemed content to roam around, while the human took pictures.

My hike ended with this mother and her yearling buck walking up to within twenty-feet-or-so, while I took pictures.  Lots of pictures.
