What's really remarkable....

...is that the deer have not dropped their antlers yet. The dates of shedding vary from year to year, but typically are late January to February. I suspect the warm winter has something to do with this. It takes some amount of energy for the deer to keep their antlers, and the relatively easy winter may explain why they are later than usual in dropping them.

Enjoy the pictures.





There's a story here. I just don't know what it is.

The latest comings and goings....

I checked the cameras today and noticed that....


  • The deer haven't dropped their antlers yet. I expect that will happen pretty soon. 
  • The beaver is still active, and has taken branches to Minebank Run to eat, but still there is no dam.
  • The raccoons have  been active the last couple weeks. I don't know if that's a seasonal change, or just coincidence. 
Enjoy the pictures.

That beaver is still around

This was a pleasant surprise.

The beaver is still around, and looking well. And I captured some lucky shots of various foxes dining.

Enjoy the photographs.

One foxy post.....

I checked the camera yesterday and found that I captured quite a few great photographs. There were so many of this fox that I thought I'd post just those.

I especially like the view from the back of the fox's head. He was kind enough to walk under the camera from behind, and stop for a few seconds. Sometimes the stars align.

Enjoy....

Oops, I almost forgot....have you joined the Cromwell Valley Park Council yet for 2017?
