Random Daily Pics

It really doesn't bother me too much, but I will think about it sometimes when I am out on the trails by our house. I have come across some fresh wolf kills out in the woods where the blood hasn't sunk into the snow yet and I get this feeling that something is watching me. Here are a couple of pics that I took from the living room in late March a few years back at about 8:00 am. I had heard a noise at about 4:00am, looked out the bedroom window and thought that I saw a fox running across the yard.  I went back to sleep and woke up to this when I opened the curtains.

Be interesting in his response to Leech. Been going up to the northland for  near 57 years. I keep thinking about getting some sort of pistol for those kind of reasons, but can honestly say I have yet to come across a situation where I feel I've been threatened to need some sort of backup

I don't.  I have given it some thought. Once I was really freaked out when I was looking at a fresh kill and heard a noise that came from behind me. Luckily that turned out to be a turkey vulture.

I'll have to say for the most part when I'm in the woods I'm carrying a gun so not to worried. 

But if I live up by Ely and out in the woods taking pictures of Ladyslippers! ⚘

I dont think throwing a camera at a Bear or Wolves is much of a deterrent! 😆

I wonder if Foss ever carrys? He gets out there.

Hey now, that's my line when folks ask about solo camping and the scary stuff.

Same attitude you best be having walking the cities after dark. ;)

And yea, no worries on wolves except for the hound.

Okay it wasn't me! 😉

A drawing of a fox appears on the frozen Pitkajarvi Lake north of Helsinki, Dec. 4, 2021. An architect-designer in southern Finland has returned to a frozen lake with a snow shovel to draw a large animal on the ice for the sixth year in a row to create a short-lived artwork that he hopes will “make people happy and encourage them to go out to hike in a beautiful nature.” The size of the fox is about 90 meters (295.3 feet) from edge to edge.
