And The Winner Is?

Rain, rain, and more rain last night and all today..  We needed it but I am soooo tired of rain and gray skies.  Tomorrow should be sunny even though cool, at least blue skies.  Yesterday was beautiful for the most part of the day but family stuff and visiting left little time for anything else.

Late this afternoon when the rain finally stopped I walked down in the woods to retrieve the trail camera.  Back to the house for boots then back again.  The normally dry to damp creek bed was filled with water.

I love seeing the interaction between species.  Based on size, who would you think would leave first?

Poor young buck!  He just keeps getting his feelings hurt.  One shot between these two is just a blur where the male fox charged at the deer.  It really surprised me.

Paula, these are amazing photos! I would never have thought the fox would win, up against those antlers.

I was quite surprised myself. I guess the male fox (on the left) thought that he was protecting his lady. She darted off when the male charged. I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas and best wishes for the new year.
