Although I didn’t find any whipsnakes, a few other critters found the eye of my camera.
The weather was cool and mostly sunny. Here are a few of the creatures I observed.
Western fence lizards are a primary food source for whipsnakes.
Horned larks chased bugs in the short grass on the ridge top.
I bumped into this young big and a larger buck as they fed on the open ridge at mid-day.
All and all it was a good day at the ranch, even without a whipsnake sighting.
