Raccoon, Deer, Green Heron and Cottontail Rabbit Photos...

Today provided a number of diverse species to view and photograph.  First I observed this raccoon while making my usual rounds…


Then, I went in search of the green heron that I saw yesterday.  Imagine my surprise when two fawns stood up on the opposite side of the pond.  While they did not hang around long I was able to get this photo…


Shortly after the fawns left the green heron arrived and allowed me several minutes to photograph it in a flatter light with much less contrast than yesterday…







This doe was photographed earlier and you can see the flies about its head and legs that must be a torment for the poor creature…



The next doe came out into a newly planted corn field where I was watching for a coyote that I had seen earlier…

You can see why farmers don’t want them in their fields.  Imagine 20 or more eating the young corn…

I know I have posted a number of rabbit pictures lately but this little one was just so cute I couldn’t resist…


 

That’s it for today.  As always, thanks for looking...
