Took the family to the ranch today. Cold and Windy. Not the kind of day that you want when looking for critters.
My grandson is wild about anything that’s alive. Everything is new and exciting. As he and his father wandered up the creek from where we parked, I began a slow walk up another draw. A ground squirrel appeared and if there had been anything else around to watch, I probably would have paid it no attention. But, I did look and it appeared that there was something in its mouth, so I raised my field glasses and looked.
This is what I saw.
Very compelling and one of the best subjects I’ve ever seen.
