Shoes From the Mexican Restaurant

I sense a new career as a shoe model, all because of Taqueria de Rocio.

Wildlife Camera, Night Two

July 16, 2010

If you want to blow right by all this chatter and look directly at the photos, go ahead.  I won’t be offended.  I just came in with the SD card about 15 minutes ago and I’m a bit startled by some of the images.  The first image shows the new set-up location of the camera.  I also dragged around and relocated the shorter A-frame station.  It had an automatic waterer on it which has a reservoir similar to the automatic feeders.  The problem with an automatic waterer during this time of year is that the mosquitoes like to lay their eggs in the water.  So I dumped the water and put the waterer on the feeding station while I moved the A-frame.  And forgot to move the waterer parts, so now they show up in the pictures.  It’s awkward being me sometimes.  Also, I had noticed yesterday that there are two sections of the fence that are pressed inward at the top where a heavy object, like a dog, was trying to get in.  And with that preamble, I give you: “Night Two of the Living Woods”…

This angle shows the re-location of the camera. The A-frame unit is to your left.

My production of "Cat on a Hot Tarpaper Roof"

Dog under the table INSIDE the fence. Oh dear. BIG dog outside the fence. Inside dog looks like he's barking at something... oh maybe, like a cat...

I think the inside dog is behind the station, standing on his hind legs, looking in the station. How did he get out of the fence?

I looked at this picture numerous times before I saw the cat on the ground at the back of the station. I saw his tail but couldn't connect it to anything. This feels like "Highlights" for kids - Find The Hidden Picture.

Is that a raccoon?

Something at the front corner closest to you, jumping off the station. Too much flash.

Cat leaving thru the fence at your lower right.

Same cat in previous picture still in process of leaving. (Edited later today: I think this is a different cat because he's inside the station and the one in the previous picture was leaving the station. Dratted cats. Wish they'd wear nametags. "Hi! My name is Fluffy!")

Uh-oh.  Gonna be late for work.  Again.
