Walkies on Sunday

Sunday I went walkies. All alone. No felines wanted to accompany me. There had been a lot of traffic in the yard. Rabbits, coyote, turkeys. The mosquito is highly unusual with these varying temperatures.
If you look closely, Butch stayed on this side of the trailcam. The coyote avoided it, as well. SIGH


Down on the frozen pond, the turkeys created a lovely pattern. Nice of them, as this dreary, cloudy weather is sad.


The colours are so dreary, but we know the critters are sleeping under the frog pond ice.


Butch raccoon was everywhere.


I love this tree, on lot #3. A massive pine.


This is just a little bit of green in the snow, with rabbit poo! Lots of rabbit tracks.


Then there were the snow fleas, properly called springtails. Billions! I did a big post on them awhile back:Nov. 2013 Feeling itchy?! I've got fleas! That's when I had a macro lens.

@Anvilcloud You bet your sweet bippy! Our driveway is a 100m skating rink.

I must have missed your older post because I don't believe I ever heard of snow fleas before. I don't remember ever seeing them in VT but that may be for lack of looking.
