I am very fortunate to live where I live. So many photo opportunities. There is a family of closes living very close to the farmstead. I imagine they are related to the ones that have live close for a number of years. I think I read once that the female will return to where she was born to raise her young. For what ever reason, I am so glad they are close. Watching the Kitts play is like having a basket of puppies. These photos were taken with a Browning Trail Camera. It has been set up by the den long before the Kitts arrived. They just think it is part of the scenery. There are five Kitts in total. They don’t seem to play outside together all the time. This may be a survival mode. I read (yes I do a lot of reading) that out of six only two or three will live to September. Yes Mother Nature can be cruel. I hope you enjoy watching them as much as I do.
Yesterday I attended my first high school rodeo. Such eager and dedicated young people. And gorgeous horses. I could have brought a trailer load home. It was horribly cold out, Mother Nature was blowing out of the Northwest straight into the bleachers. The photos you are about to see are the juniors. I was too frozen to stay for the seniors. By the time the juniors were finished I couldn’t tell the difference between camera shake and body shake. Hope you enjoy the action.
