Fox in the Snow January 16, 2017
My Socklady friend Lynne lives in the Far North (Northern British Columbia) – this beautiful fox is a regular visitor to her back yard. I would love this view from my kitchen window!
And for comparison, from The Naturalist’s Notebook on Facebook, here’s a fox in the sand on Cape Cod

The River Shannon March 26, 2015
We saw the most amazing Nature program on KCTS9 last night. The photography was absolutely amazing. A gentle hushed approach to the River Shannon in all 4 seasons. Made us think of David Cabot and Bill Oddie and the most famous of all Richard Attenborough.
